The new Falstaff production (in cooperation with the National Centre for performing arts in Beijing) is simple divine. Don't miss this. Go, if you can get tickets!

Enjoyed the tour to see the beautiful and historical opera house. Very interesting information. Wonderful to imagine all the talent gracing the stage. Personal opinion...interior not as impressive as Palais Garnier Paris but has its own charm.

This was a great place to visit in Vienna, incredibly beautiful, with multi-lingual guides who give a great introduction to this amazing edifice. We were taken all through the opera house, including on stage and to the various halls. The giant staircase is absolutely majestic.

Went to see a sub-par Opera (Peter Grimes) here and was satisfactorily impressed by the architecture and opulence of the opera house. Great photographic opportunities and an impressive theater. The bar and food leaves much to be desired, and the audience could be rude at times (Korean tourists talking throughout the opera, and a female Austrian senior citizen HITTING my... More

I was lucky enough to search on the Opera House's website for tickets a few days before our visit to Vienna and actually found two, for the date I wanted, in the front of a box! We saw Falstaff, in all its glory. Wonderful sets, costumes and cast. We were in Box 3, so quite close to the stage, and... 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.
