Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Schonbrunn Palace Evening Concert. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The concert was moved to the white and gold room of the palace. This is an incredible room and a fabulous place for the concert, acoustics were very good there. That was a nice plus. Unfortunately, it was a terribly hot evening with a large audience; for reasons only the administration knows, windows were kept closed until intermission. It was almost unbearable to sit in that room; a portion of the audience left at intermission and did not return, a member of my group felt faint and left within 15 minutes of the concert start. As for the concert, the vocal soloists were the stars. Their voices and interaction with each other and the audience made the concert enjoyable (and the rating of 4 stars given here).
However, and perhaps because of the heat, the horn player had difficulty hitting the proper notes. I found that annoying given the professional stature of the ensemble. Otherwise, I'd have to give the ensemble high marks for adeptly playing in that heat. And, perhaps because of the heat or constraints of the space, there were no dancers in this particular concert. Likewise, no mention was made that the dance portion of the program was canceled. That's a shame, too, given that half of the program was devoted to Strauss.
We sat in the B section. That allowed limited views of the chamber ensemble, good view of the soloists. The C section is very far back, especially in that large room, and may not be worth the price of the ticket if anyone hopes to see anything.
Good experience. No real difference between the more expensive seats near the front as we noticed no difference in sound quality whilst moving around the hall
A very good evening - Viator were great with directions for tickets and description of evening concert. Also refund for friends unable to go to Vienna shortly before departure, due to a family illness, was promptly dealt with.
Would highly recommend - sorry no photos as not allowed at the concert!
Everything was very nice in Vienna, - the tour bus and the concert too. The only thing, I wish that your website will let know people of upcoming events in town, because it effected the bus schedule which shortened our tour. They had marathon on that day and stopped tour buses at 4 which is 1.4 to 2 hours earlier. Please, let people know of any events that going on in town on those dates.
Really enjoyable evening , worth seeing. Musicians and dancers/singers very entertaining. Would recommend.
We took the subway to the palace and it took us almost to the front door of the hall.
We had a very good evening at the concert, music was fantastic, very beautiful voices, did not care for the dancing, did not fit in. I would suggest in not getting the least expensive tickets, you are in the back, no stadium seating. Highly suggest doing this and the evening tour of the Palace.
Light entertainment as I expected, nothing too heavy or dramatic,suitable for a tired and weary tourist like me.
If you are into this type of music, then it is a must see. Choose seats in the front, middle hall seats are too far.
Wonderful evening. I recommend VIP seating for a up-close and unobstructed view. Very well done. This is my second time attending and I enjoyed every moment. Beautiful venue. I also recommend the dinner. The food was terrific and service was very professional.
The concert was charming and the venue extremely beauritfu. We are glad we went.
