Stop At:  
Kursalon Wien - Sound of Vienna
Begin your evening with dinner at the Restaurant Johann inside the beautiful Kursalon Vienna concert hall. Sit down to a gourmet 4-course dinner of seasonal Viennese dishes amid the exquisite surroundings of one of Vienna’s most famous and historic concert venues. (See Sample Menu below.) It was here that the waltz was popularized in the 19th century thanks to Viennese composer Johann Strauss. Performing dances and concerts regularly, the venue soon became a popular meeting place for Viennese society to enjoy music and savor the joie de vivre. Still preserving its historical roots, the Kursalon now has a modern flair, with four spectacular ballrooms on two floors and a spacious terrace with views over Stadtpark. After dinner, you’ll be escorted to your seat in Lanner Hall for the Salonorchester Alt Wien concert, one of today’s best-known interpreters of classical Viennese music. Savor the lilting sound of waltzes, polkas, arias and duets, as well as operetta and piano concerto melodies accompanied by opera vocalists and ballet soloists. Revel in the performances of Strauss’ ‘Voices of Spring,’ ‘Roses from the South, ‘The Sigh Galop,’ ‘A Little Night Music’ and ‘On the Beautiful Blue Danube,' and Mozart’s ‘Rondo alla Turca’ and the overture to the opera Le Nozze di Figaro. Be enchanted by Strauss' 'My Lord Marquis' from The Bat operetta and 'Entree Zsupan' from The Gypsy Baron operetta, as well as Johann Schrammel’s ‘Vienna remains Vienna' and many more pieces from Viennese musicians throughout the centuries. If you've booked the first two rows with your VIP ticket, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine during the interval, and take home a Johann Strauss CD with your Kursalon Orchestra program. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- Sample Menu: April – May First course (choose one): • Viennese tafelspitz (boiled beef in broth) with Styrian beans and apple vinaigrette • Mousse of smoked trout with cucumber crème fraicheSecond course (choose one): • White cream of asparagus • Beef consommé with wild garlic dumplingsMain course (choose one): • Grilled fillet of salmon with asparagus-parsley risotto and crème fraiche sauce • Roast rump of veal with spring onion purée and glazed broccoliDessert (choose one): • Vanilla panna cotta with rhubarb and mint • 'Kaiserschmarrn' tartlet with plum sauceJune – July First course (choose one): • Thin sliced Viennese tafelspitz with chive sauce, pumpkin seed oil and green salad • Smoked trout in a mousseline sauce and Parmesan quiche of young onionsSecond course (choose one): • Cream of potatoes with parsley pesto • Beef consommé with semolina dumplingMain course (choose one): • Grilled fillet of salmon on thyme-zucchini risotto with lemon foam • Roast rump of veal on young onion polenta with sautéed Brussels sproutsDessert (choose one): • Mousse of elderflower with fresh strawberries • Mango tartletAugust – September First course (choose one): • Original Austrian beef salad with pumpkin seed oil vinaigrette • Mousse of Austrian char with creamy zucchini-dill saladSecond course (choose one): • Carrot cream with dill crème fraiche • Beef consommé with chive-batter dropsMain course (choose one): • Grilled fillet of salmon with a spinach feta soufflé, rosemary potatoes and pumpkin ragout • Roast rump of veal with olive purée and steamed carrotsDessert (choose one): • Cappuccino with Mascarpone and cranberry jelly • Homemade pear tart with cinnamon yogurtOctober – December First course (choose one): • Carpaccio of Viennese tafelspitz on seasonal winter leaf lettuce and apple confit • Filet of Austrian sheatfish with parsnip-salsify saladSecond course (choose one): • Pumpkin soup with pumpkin seed oil • Beef consommé with liver dumplingsMain course (choose one): • Grilled fillet of salmon on risotto of red turnip and wasabi foam • Roast rump of veal with tomato gnocchi and sautéed beansDessert (choose one): • Mousse of Styrian apple with yogurt and a cinnamon crumble • Tiramisu of Viennese mélange with foamy egg liqueur

Must do concert but can skip the meal
Elaine_C

The Kursalon concert is a must. It was a fantastic concert including opera singing, waltzing, and of course the music of the famous composers who graced Vienna. The quality was top notch and the environment wonderful. Intermission included champagne! We also booked the dinner before. We were not impressed with the quality of the food at dinner. I would suggest skipping the dinner at Kursalon, you can go out to dinner before on your own and just go to the concert.

Fabulous dinner and they even surprised us with a lovely dessert for my Mom’s 80th birthday. The show was excellent as well. I wanted it to be special for her and it didn’t disappoint. Our waitress was a doll and so sweet. Highly recommend! 💖

No complaint regarding the show but the photo on Viator is misleading. It is not as advertised a sophisticated and formal evening. That night you had people in shorts, t-shirts and sneakers…. As for the dinner, we were sent to a second rate restaurant, one kilometre away from the venue. So a yes for the music, a no for the rest.

The concert was great. The orchestra music & opera singers and ballet dancers were all exceptional. The dinner was very disappointing not worth the cost of the meal. I highly recommend the concert but not the dinner. Do the VIP seats so you can see the show. Stage is low and hard to see from the back.

Ein Wiener Abend!

The restaurant and the food were good, however they only served us by mistake a 3-course meal instead of the 4-course meal we paid for. They made it up by serving 1 cuppuchino complementary. That could have been more generous. Like not charging us for two glasses of wine and serving a cappuchino. The orchestra I found mediocre, but the singers and dancers were really great. The piece of music were very well chosen. Johann Strauss and Mozart. The chairs are quite uncomfortable. Furthermore everyone in the public seemed to have a red ticket for a glass of sekt. Did it come with the ticket? Why not us? We paid a considerable amount of money for the tickets. Since we’re not used anymore to carry cash, we tried to pay by card. They only accepted cash. That’s a bit old fashioned.

I went to eat first the four course meal the location was in the liebsteinsky restaurant. The food was great I really enjoyed the food and the waiters were great as well. Definitely recommend if you want to try out Austrian food. Then attended the concert the concert was fantastic I really enjoyed it. I definitely recommend this experience. If you like good food and a great classical concert definitely an amazing experience.

entertainment show if this is what you looking for
WingKwan_F

My rating: 3.5 ⭐️, just not what I expected but it suits people who are looking for a fun entertainment show. The show combined dancing with story and singing. Pros: - good dancers - restaurant is modern with clean toilet - jeans and sneakers are accepted Cons: - long waiting time to redeem ticket, only one person working, make sure you arrive early - restaurant food was okay, not bad but nothing amazing, the waiters kept rushing, asked me a few times in 10min if they can take my plate, even sometimes i was on phone, after they took my plate, next dish came in 30 sec, right after you put down your fork, they came collect it right away. The restaurant was less than half full, no queue. Could have given customers more time to enjoy before concert. I felt pressured. - restaurant is not the one inside Kursalon, it’s somewhere 2-3 min away, if this is what you care - after reading some reviews, i decided to arrive the restaurant a bit later at 6:30pm still way too much time before concert at 8:30pm given the fast speed of restaurant you can easily finish your meal in 45min. - this is more like an entertainment show for tourist, not real taste of vienna classical concert in my opinion Recommended to buy VIP or CAT A as for CAT B, you cannot really see. No option for vegetarian main on menu, you might want to confirm if you are vegetarian.

Substandard Dinner/Spectacular Concert
Kristin_P
, May 2022
The dinner was at a “sister restaurant “ which was actually a French cafe. It is nothing like the photos of a formal dinner, so that was a serious disappointment as we wanted, and paid for, a special evening out. I wish I could leave two reviews as the concert was spectacular.Just go for the concert and skip dinner as it wasn’t worth it.

Horrible experience, very disappoint. Dreadful restaurant, empty rooms, no atmosphere. Way too long between dinner and concert.

Dear Dieter, thank you for taking your time and reviewing the experience. We are sorry that our venue did not meet your preferences. As it is described in the product information the whole Concert & Dinner experience lasts approximately 4 hours in order to secure enough time for the guests to enjoy their meals without being rushed for the concert. For our quests it is of course possible to attend the dinner a bit later if they desire. Thank you again for your review and we hope that you had a nice stay in Vienna!

We were a little disappointed the Kursalon restaurant was undergoing renovations so the dinner was moved, but we had a lovely time. It was just down the street at Parlor and the service and food was delicious. The concert was incredible, we had chills from the performances especially the female vocalist. Loved the variety of the orchestra on its own, some dancing and some singing numbers. Perfect amount of time as well. I was worried I might get bored haha, not the case! Very great experience when visiting Vienna.

Great dinner and spectacular concert

We totally enjoyed our experience at The Kursalon in Vienna. As it turned out, the hotel AMA Waterways used in Vienna after our Christmas Markets cruise was The Intercontinental which is across the street. Our dinner was excellent. Drinks were not included but were reasonable. Service was very good. The concert featured a wonderful ensemble, excellent dancers and great soloists. We highly recommend this event and would attend it again ourselves.

Great Concert, poor food
David_S

Kursalon is a beautiful venue, perfect for the Strauss and Mozart concert we saw. The orchestra, singers and dancers were superb. We also booked the 4 course 'gourmet' dinner and it was a disappointment. The service was excellent but the food itself was poor. I think the chef's were concentrating on presentation rather than quality and whilst the food looked nice, unfortunately it didn't taste that good.

Beautiful setting first and foremost. The evening was very well spaced out and timed. From arrival to each course arriving. Food was very good. The concert was very fast paced. The opera and dances were timed well and added to the humour of the pieces. A very enjoyable evening
