Indeed for tourists, but music is nice

Almost a tourist trap... The music is very nice, though. Good option if you can buy the ticket for up to EUR 35 or so. They could avoid trying to make jokes... People are coming... read more

We were not sure about the quality of this, until we arrived. But professional musicians played Mozart and Strauss beautifully.

We bought the tickets while we were walking around the city center and was approached by a charming young man in a dirty looking yellow waist coat. We wanted to watch a classical music presentation so we bought the tickets. Yep, we got the €10 off and was offered the free drinks during the interval. We were told that the... More

We were a little nervous buying four tickets at discount (for €44 each) with the promise of a free drink each at intermission written on the back of one of the tickets. Read mixed reviews here after buying tickets, thought we'd been scammed WRONG. The concert was as advertised in the Kaiser Saal in the Haus der Industrie. This beautiful... More

Let me preface this by saying I wanted to go to a classical music concert while in Vienna. The tacky costumes of the salespeople on the street should have been a giveaway. I was horrified at the "comedy" and how the whole show was purely aimed at tourists. The "ballet" was ridiculous. They had all of two square metres to... More

In a moment of total lapse in judgment, my wife and I decided to buy two tickets from some guy on the street to this concert. Normally we know better than to, say, eat at the restaurants where the guy outside is begging every passerby to come in. However, we had wanted to see some sort of classical music during... More

Like others bought our tickets from seller outside St Stephens. We were not anticipating a full orchestra, in fact we assumed it would be reasonably competent musicians in a city full of musicians. Our venue was the halls of industry, which externally looked like an office building but was surprisingly pleasing internally. Third row seats at 40 euros were good... More

My husband and I were planning on buying tickets to see a high school choir perform at Stephansdom when a man approached us out front asking if we wanted to see a concert. We thought he meant the choir in the church but realized he meant one of those tourist concerts. Against my better judgement we bought tickets. We got... More

We bought our tickets for 80 euro from the salesman outside the church. I was very skeptical about it so went on tripadvisor and saw the mixed reviews about it. The place we saw it at is the Palais niederosterreich at Herrengasse. The Good: 1. Room looked nice. 2. The opera singer was great. 3. Orchestra was good. The Bad:... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 centre. 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.
