Concert tickets

My wife and I will be in Vienna from August 5 through the 113th. There seems to be concerts every evening and we want to know if it is best to get tickets before we come or wait until we arrive in the city?

Several people at our hotel ( Grand Wien ) say noit to worry they can always get tickets.

1. Re: Concert tickets

Review all of the concerts available -

look at the data base under the Events section of the tourist website

www.info.wien.at

Many concerts including some in Churches and other venues.

Many of the concerts offered to tourists are really not that good and are quite expensive considering the show offered.

You will see numerous " Street Sellers " offering concert tickets in front of many tourist sites. Many are insulting and prey on tourists to pressure a sale. Stay away from them.

Your hotel can arrange for any tickets. You may pay a slight premium for them , but it is an easy way to get the tickets you want.

Look carefully at the " Events" many are free to tourists.

The venue at the Rathaus can be festive with an international food court and good concerts , operas, etc. shown on a giant screen.

A good place if the weather continues to be very hot as is now being experienced.

Many concert halls and other venues have no airconditioning.
