Vienna State Opera Schonbrunn Palace Golden Hall, Musikverein
Vienna is a city of romance, history, culture, art and of course music. Wander along mediaeval alleyways or across imperial squares. Visit the amazing Palace of Schonbrunn or the Imperial State Apartments in the Hofburg. Browse elegant shops or relax in a Viennese coffee house or a traditional wine tavern. Stroll around one of the many parks and gardens or visit one of the fascinating street markets. There are numerous museums and art galleries to visit. A tour of St Stephen's Cathedral and a performance by the elegant Lipizzaner horses of the Spanish Riding School should not be missed.
Most importantly of all, Vienna is the Capital City of Music. Mozart, Beethoven, Johann Strauss and Schubert all lived in Vienna. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the top orchestras in the world. The Orchestra recruits its musicians from the Vienna State Opera Orchestra.
Visit the Golden Hall in the Musikverein, venue for the fabulous New Years Day concert that is broadcast around the world. Take a tour around the magnificent Vienna State Opera House. There are concerts every day, music is everywhere! The Vienna Volksoper is the Viennese home of Operetta. Imagine a performance by Strauss, Kalman or Lehar accompanied by a 60 piece orchestra - an enthralling and unforgettable experience!
