What superb entertainment, the first half of the concert was dedicate to Mozart and the second - strauss. Each session was interspersed with both singing and dancing. Everything was to a very high standard.

Just had an unforgettable evening attending a Mozart and Strauss concert performed by the Vienna Residence Orchestra in their venue, Auersperg Palace. Far from stuffy, it was a delightful evening of "the best of the best", beautifully played with the delightful addition of dancers and incredible solo singing artists. Will never forget this beautiful evening, Tickets available online. Purchase ahead... More

I was a bit skeptical after reading some bad reviews on here and seeing salespeople at every major tourist sight. However, I was pleasantly surprised! I think it did help to go in knowing what to expect. Doors open at 745, and by the time we arrived around 805 or so many of the seats were filled. Looked to be... More

As someone who doesn't listen to classical music, the Mozart and Strauss Concert was certainly something spectacular! The musicians are so talented and the music is just wonderful. The room is also equally as amazing, so opulent and elegant.

You will find these tickets sold at all the typical tourist locations, usually in the morning. I was very hesitant to purchase them, but as I did want to see a classical concert in Vienna, I decided, to try it anyway. I was not disappointed. The venue is in a historic structure that's about 300 years old and is very... More

This concert is designed for contiki tour buses and people unfamiliar with classical music. The programme was boring and a performance to match. Do not recommend if you love Mozart or Strauss...

I have to say that the musicians who performed played magnificently and the music was tremendous. However I had expected a few more of them. We were slightly miss old our tickets in the belief that the orchestra were performing whereas in reality it was 5 strings, A pianist and 1 flute. There was a wee bit of an opera... More

This is more like a variety show. Trying to do a bit of everything and not focusing on what you are good gives terrible results. This could have been a much better experience for the visitor if: (a) they completely changed their wardrobe to be more serious and suitable. Seriously, the costumes are ridiculous, totally unflattering and demeaning to the... More

An enjoyable performance for what it is, but this ensemble is an octet consisting of piano, strings and one flute. What about the 2nd flute, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, trumpets and timpani, to say nothing of the trombones scored for the works in the second half of the programme? Sorry to say it, but this is a con and not... More

Staying in Josefstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Josefstadt
The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at its finest: and this is what makes it popular with locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts have conquered distinctive places such as the Old General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of overground U6. Theater in der Josefstadt on Josefstädter Strasse is the district’s cultural epicentre. Even if your German isn’t good enough to watch a play, you can marvel at the typical Biedermeier building and take a glimpse into the foyer. Lange Gasse houses an iconic local restaurant at its corner, as well as a legendary sweet shop and a bustling neighbourhood market every Saturday. For small palace atmosphere and a different view on Vienna’s history, make your way to Schönborn garden palace (Palais Schönborn), which houses the Museum of Folk and Folk Art (Volkskundemuseum). Maria-Treu-Platz, with its summer outdoor cafés facing baroque church Maria Treu, and the historic passageway of Lerchenfelder Strasse 13 hide top spots for insiders.
