Culture, culture, culture. Real Austrian European culture. Worth the effort even if you are not an avid opera fan. Beautiful building. Traditional middle Europe.

Great evening. Recommend to buy tickets online in advance to get cheaper prices. Alternatively you can also arrive on the day and queue on the side of the opera 2 hours before the show to get "standing" tickets at a very cheap price.

I didn't book the tickets in advance due the prices, but I got there in time to get the " promotional" one and had the time of my life. Watching Macbeth was something I will never forget. Even tough our tickets were the "discount" one, we never felt any different approach from the people working there. They were always ready... More

Saw Don Giovanni at the Opera House. Not being a huge opera fan, it was beautiful in every way. Recommend reading up on the opera you are going to see so you can appreciate the story (or take along a musician, like I did!). There were little electronic screens in front of each seat so you could read the translation... More

Two parts to this review: the building, and the Opera company. We saw Strauss opera "Arabella". Not a favorite for me, especially when I was expecting a Vienna "ball" and the opera had been modernized to have more of an erotic cabaret. That was a disappointment. The cast was excellent and sets were good. Structurally, it is lovely and a... More

What an amazing experience. We went to see Arabella and we're not disappointed. Our seats were in a box with 7 seats which was very hot and stuffy. We were disturbed by the people behind us who were standing and leaning over us so they could see the stage. Fortunately we had a good view and enjoyed the performance. Buying... 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.
