Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Spectacular venue with world-class performances. A must-see/hear when in Vienna. A couple of notes... Do not be late. Performances start on time and you will not be allowed in until intermission if you are late. Also, you are expected to be quiet, respectful and very still while watching the performance. This was a bit new for me and not what I have experienced in other concerts. They take this very seriously as a sign of respect for the musicians. This is not to discourage anyone from going but each country has it's own vibe and I find it helpful to know these kinds of things so I'm sharing them. Absolute must-see when in Vienna.

It was an amazing experience. The interior was splendid. The decoration and the art of the music hall itself require one visit. The Mozart concert was fabulous. The singers and the conductors mesmerized us all the time. It was two hours long but not for a moment I felt bored. Highly recommended during a visit to Vienna.

If, like us, you couldn’t get tickets to a performance in the main hall, standing room might be your only option to hear the amazing acoustics. If you know what you are in for, you won’t be disappointed. Other reviewers have mentioned the queue, the coat check, etc. all I could say is, yes, it is uncomfortable, and hot. And crowded. Quite a few people left at intermission ( so did we, unfortunately as our friends just couldn’t hack it), so I wonder whether the strategy should be to arrive for the second half?

The concert hall is beautiful and worth a visit on its own; that said, we immediately noticed that the acoustics of the hall makes the sound more crisp. We are regular symphony goers and the difference was very dramatic. Try to attend a concert in this hall and you will be rewarded.

I was fortunate to get a ticket to the Moscow State Orchestra playing Tchaikovsky Pathetique and it was televised. It was the most amazing place/concert/experience. Because it was televised the lighting was even more than usual and the ceiling was simply phenomenal, it thoroughly deserves its name as the Golden Hall. Having come back from Istanbul by train and all connections worked I was as high as a kite for weeks after and even now after a few years it still touched my soul that a building which I had toured when empty just comes alive as a living breathing wonderful thing. Sheer magic - do go if you can.

The atmosphere and decoration are fantastic as a concert house.
However, extremely bad experience as we paid €98 for a classic concert and they sit us 3 rows from the back . The music acoustic was extremely bad , back there. To make things worst , after mid break, all the general public with much lower paying customer €38 plus can free officially to come up and sit in front of you if there are available sits ( officially approved free for all arrangement ). Makes me feel like a fool to pay so much.

I just went spontaneously to a concert and got a last minute ticket. Dvorak and Beethoven by the Wiener Symphoniker, so really good orchestra and incredible pieces. The hall is worth seeing, a historic place for viennese and international music, but I had a place in the standing area, where about 30 people can stand comfortably. There where at least a 100 people, so I got a spot in the last corner, where I didn’t see anything and had an uncomfortable spot. It’s a pity that they sell so many tickets for such a small area and, in my opinion, it doesn’t represent the spirit of such a noble institution.

Perhaps world’s the most famous concert venue with wonderful acoustic. Even if the building itself is not modern anymore, it does not matter. You can see here so much history, proud and enthusiasm. Concret is this place is really great experience.

This is a beautiful set of Music Halls that is a must visit when in Vienna. The tour is most educational and entertaining. You are only allowed to take pictures in the great hall, but that is the one you want to remember anyway. Highly recommend it.
