Took the guided tour for €6. Tour guide was good, we chose not to see a performance as not really into the art. Worth a visit

While not really an Opera fan we got tickets for a performance of Das Rheingold during our visit to Vienna. I would recommend it for anyone. Even on a budget, standing room tickets are dirt cheep right before a performance. The ambiance of the venue,...More

If you have the chance visit during the day as well as in the evening. The building is very nice lighted when it gets dark. Its about a 15 minute walk away from the Cathedral.

I went to the Wiener Staatsoper to enjoy a beautiful performance by Karita Mattila and to see this magnificent building. This is a must if you come to Vienna. The acoustic is perfect and the inner building is full with luxury and beauty.

I visited Vienna State Opera with a friend who was speaking German language, as well as English, so when I paid 3 euro to the cashier at the Opera, I thought I paid only for the entrance, to see the hall before the show starts,...More

The visit to the Opera is worth just to take in the architecture and the history.This was the first major building on the Ringstasse and was completed in 1869.Well worth a visit even if you cannot see a performance.

From outside it was great and I wished to see it from inside as well and attend a concert but the tickets queue was too long, so I recommend you go early to get a good seat.

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

2 questions: I have seats for the top large box on the right, the second row of seats. Are the seats raised in relation to the front row? Will I see anything at all? They were the only seats available for three people on the night I'm going and, at a a small premium to the tour, I thought they were worth it. I know that one can get SRO tickets but we are in Vienna a short time and I don't want to waste it waiting. Are you allowed to walk through the whole opera house prior to the show or are you limited to the level you are assigned to?

You might have to change your view depending on the perdon in front of you and depending on what part of the stage that is being used. Otherwise, as previously noted, view obstructed seats are noted as such and generally you... More

Are the "standing room tickets" still a thing and worth it? I've read something about them (like that you have to queue for hours..) but I don't know how updated the infos are, could you tell me how to get them and how they work please? Also, we were planning to go to the opera on next Sunday (19/04/2017) and I just discovered there is going to be the marathon on that day. Does that mean the city is going to be mega crowded and getting to the Opera much harder? Thank you!

The standing room tickets are available. Are they worth it? If standing up or sitting down for 3 hrs has no value to you and if you can't actually see the stage doesn't really concern you, you should go for the standing room... More

Apparently you get a translator at your seat. There's a picture of one in photos.
