This is the place to go if you are looking into a classical concert experience. The Wiener Musikverein is the centre of Viennese musical culture and the home of the Vienna Philharmonic. But it is also where visiting international orchestras perform when in Vienna.
The Wiener Musikverein was built by the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde (Society of Music Lovers) on land that was given by the Habsburg dynasty in the late 19th century.
There are several halls and auditoriums in the building, but the one that is internationally recognized by music lovers is the Golden Hall.
The Musikverein is also famous for its acoustics and ranks amongst the finest concert and opera venues in the world, even though none of its halls were built during modern times or with the application of today’s acoustics science.
Being at the Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert may be a dream for many - but it is really hard to get tickets, we would say nearly impossible!
