Sala Terrena at the House of the Teutonic Order (Deutschordenshaus)
As one of the standout venues in Vienna, Sala Terrena offers visitors the chance to enjoy Mozart's chamber music, complete with performers wearing period dress from the composer's time. Most travelers prebook tickets to secure seats at the small venue and often pair a concert with visits to nearby attractions, including the must-see St. Stephen’s Cathedral (Domkirche St. Stephan), which is located within walking distance.
Things to Know Before You Go
Music enthusiasts shouldn't miss a performance of the Mozart Ensemble Vienna in the historic Sala Terrena.
Design fans appreciate the room’s Venetian late-Renaissance styling and the mythical depictions in its frescoes.
Check the calendar before you book tickets, as occasional renovations mean concerts may take place in an alternative space.
The venue can be tricky to find, so arrive early for your concert.
Sala Terrena is wheelchair-accessible.
How to Get There
Located at Singerstrasse 7 in the heart of Vienna, the Sala Terrena is best reached by metro. Take the U1 or U3 metro line to the Stephansplatz stop and exit through the Kärtner Strasse pedestrian exit. Find the Sala Terrena just steps from the metro, inside the archway marked number seven. The venue is inside, through the interior courtyard.
When to Get There
Concerts are offered all year round at the Sala Terrena, typically on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. Since concerts are busiest during peak summer tourist season—in June, July, and August—aim to book a show in late spring or early fall. You can avoid the crowds, and enjoy the city's mild weather.
Visiting St. Stephen's Cathedral
Just a short walk from Sala Terrena stands St. Stephen's Cathedral, a celebrated national symbol known for its colorful tiled roof and Gothic styling. For unparalleled city views, don't miss a climb up the South Tower, which offers a vantage point from more than 500 feet (152 meters) above the city. Just be ready for a workout, since you need to climb 343 steps to reach the top.
