The music was absolutely magnificent. The special package mentioned getting a CD, but this didn't happen. The evening was incredible, though.

Spectacular Concert!
Shirley_S

What a performance! This small orchestra (18 musicians) fill up the room with the very best of Mozart, Strauss, and others. Their technical skills are superb. The director led Mozart they way it was supposed to be played (I'm a great Mozart fan). The singers were also actors and brought their pieces to life. The venue is spectacular and the program was a great blend of serious classical music and fun operetta numbers. Even if you are not a classical music lover, you will enjoy this concert! (Kudos to the cellist, too!)

VIP tickets are a ripped off
Rosaleen_M
, Jun 2022
I enjoyed the concert and the music was lovely the problem was we paid for VIP seats which were double the cost and they were a total rip off! We were close to the front but not front row and the glass of sparkling wine wasn’t even full. Just feel we over paid for something we didn’t get. Also the concert was moved from the Orangery to the palace but we weren’t told as we went to the orangery to get the tickets to find the office closed and no sigh saying where to get them. We ended up wasting 45mins going backwards and forwards before we realised we need to go to the main entrance of the palace. That should be made clear with a sigh or message before as if we weren’t luckily enough to find someone to help us we could of missed the whole thing.

Thank you for your feedback on the Schoenbrunn Palace Concerts! Regarding the ticket category: "first come - first serve" principle applies to us, which means that it can happen that the first row is occupied by other VIP guests. Regarding the ticket pick up: Viator's reservation confirmation should state the following "TICKET COLLECTION: Please go to the The Orangey Schonbrunn Ticket Office." But we will try to make it clearer in the future! Apart from the points mentioned, we hope you enjoyed the evening with us. warm regards from Vienna!

Nice concert with professional musicians, dancers and singers
Hilde

We were two couples who enjoyed very much this Wiener concert with music by Strauss and Mozart. The musicans, opera singers and dancers were all very professional. We are all very satisfied. We did not have dinner before the concert, but we got a glass of Sparkling wine. The only negative was the line in order to get the drink.

Lovely setting in the Orangerie of the Palace. The musicians were excellent but the concert spoiled by the singers and dancers which were an odd addition. It was expensive for an hour concert. 25 minute intermission was not long enough for everyone to get a drink as a pop up bar with only two staff

AWFUL!!

It was a terrible venue. The whole show looked and felt temporary...and it was. The stage looked like a portable platform on wheels covered with a skirt. The audience seats were steel-framed cheap-restaurant types set up in rows all on the same level so you had to duck and dodge around the heads in front of you. No air conditioning (it is Germany, after all) and it was stifling hot with all those people in the room. They had a couple of undersized and inadequate fans set up...they did nothing but blow the guy's next to me body odor in my direction. The acoustics were terrible in here. I don't care that the monarch used this room for concerts...he must have had a tin ear. There were opera singers and the room gobbled up most of their talent. I felt bad for them. The 16 piece orchestra was OK...a few mistakes, but it was live, after all. The bad acoustics, the stifling heat, the smells, the uncomfortable chairs all made for an unfortunate evening. The "wonderful" light show that some people mention was nothing more than out-of-focus projections of star flare which I found to be hokey and unprofessional. I paid $85 per seat times 5 ( a whopping $425). I was not happy. My wife, her friend, and I left at the intermission and the 2 kids stayed to the end. I was cheated by this tourist trap scheme. It was a waste of my money, time, and effort (smart casual dress code...you must be kidding). So, we had on our long pants and dress shirts and coats and melted in this terrible place. Some people wore shorts, t-shirts, and sandals...they were the smart ones!! I would not recommend this to my worst enemy. A refund would be most appropriate.

Wonderful concert and music. Orchestra and singers were very entertaining and fun. Music from Mozart and Strauss was very nice. Only disappointment was we didn't get the dinner reservations along with the concert. Nearby restaurant closed when we just got there an hour before the concert. The ticket pickup location was also a long ways to walk from the actual concert location. Not very convenient.
