My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this concert at the Schonbrunn. Our VIP tickets made it very special and most convenient given my husband hearing deficiency. Perfect seats, outstanding music and performances in a fabulous setting. It just does not get any better than that! This experience was truly one of the highlights of our Austrian Tour.
We had an elegant evening at the Schonbrunn. I was a little disappointed that they didn't play any Christmas music, but I recognized and enjoyed all pieces. A bonus was the Christmas Market outside the palace. Would highly recommend.
Concert was nice. Keep in mind that the stage is difficult to see from the back and each seating section is a first come first serve basis. Seats were very cramped and I felt as though I was sitting on the persons' lap beside me.
A really fine performance. Smart phones should be left at the door! They are a distraction to both the musicians and patrons. A small problem finding the actual venue as the performance was not in the main palace site. Schoenbrunn Palace staff were of no assistance in this matter.
It was a magical evening of Mozart and Strauss! The orchestra was excellent and so were the ballet dancers and opera singers. An announcement of the pieces they were playing/performing would have made the experience better. We took seats in the middle but it was too far from the orchestra, especially because seating of all rows was at the same level. One could not see very clearly.
