Exterior huge, looks Great with beautifull entrance hall and staircase. Ceiling paintings, statues etc. THE foyer was to be redecorated and closed.
THE auditorium is big but Simple without decorations ,rather boring but good accustics.

No one tells you Opera house is closed for summer months and you can’t even tour the inside. They really push the concert house, we didn’t go but 1 salesman was giving us great deal for €43.00 tickets (only ones left) then we hear another...More
This building at the heart of Vienna is a must visit for any tourist to the city. However, as impressive the exterior is, the interior is even grander! Must catch a show to get a sense of this world famous opera house. I watched a...More

After we took some photos, we...More

We arrived spontaneously after a visit to the close by (and very recommended) Albertina.
As it is not the opera season we planned to take the guided tour which leaves from the lobby every round hour. We arrived at 11:55 and saw the crowds waiting,...More
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
HI, the tour cost 9 Euro's and lasted an hour. They do them @ 1pm, 2pm & 3pm and take groups in about 5 different languages. My husband wasn't fussy about doing it, but really enjoyed it & was glad he joined me!
