Staying opposite the opera house we were keen to see behind the scenes. We had lunch in the cafe and then popped round to queue as suggested about 15 mins before the time.
Very busy, dont worry that basically the queue just seems to turn...More
This is a great tour and the tour person was very informative. The tickets are pretty cheap at 9 Euro and was a 45 minute tour. They do have special times these run for languages so check the times when you enter.

I've done this tour twice. It is offered in different languages and the tickets are reasonably priced. They offer a senior discount for those over 65 and accept cash or credit cards. We went to the 1:00 pm tour and I thought it might be...More
There was only 2 visits on a whole weekend (only Sunday afternoon) and you can imagine the number of people for each language group and how it was hard to handle!! It was too crowded, sometimes hard to hear. The visit was interesting but it...More
Lovely to see inside the Opera house and get behind the scenes information. There's a lot happening here - 200 stage hands change out 2 full sets daily! Enter at the SW corner of the Opera House and buy your tickets, then wait in the...More
I initially did not want to take the opera house tour, because I was tired and didn't want to have to stand up for another hour, but changed my mind at the last minute. We were led to main floor of the the inside of...More
Very interesting tour of the Opera House with English speaking guide who was very good. You cannot book but find out the times of the tours on particular days (in different languages) and just turn up about 10 minutes before. You get to see the...More
A visit to the grand State Opera house on Vienna is highly recommended even to those aren't opera fans. The beautiful building, its architecture & interior design, together with its period furniture, statues and paintings are most impressive. Time well-spent standing in line to get...More
We are not into Opera but this was a particularly great tour. It was about €9 each and for this you had a guide speaking totally in English taking you all around the the building , in front house and back stage and gave great...More
This guided tour is worth the visit. Such a beautiful building ... our tour guide was very informative , answering every question with ease. The interior is almost breath taking and you can imagine yourself in the day walking up those grand staircases. The Opera...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.
If I remember, the ticket office doesn't open until about 1/2 hour before tour time. We were there at opening, and there were only a handful of other people. As the time got closer to tour time, a short line built up, but... More
If I remember, the ticket office doesn't open until about 1/2 hour before tour time. We were there at opening, and there were only a handful of other people. As the time got closer to tour time, a short line built up, but there was no problem for everyone to get their tickets. After buying tickets it might look like a lot of people, but they break up into groups based on language, so the group sizes are reasonable.
The ticket counter is in the foyer, so you can walk into that area. From there you can see much of the rest of the lower section of the foyer, however, most of it was roped off so we couldn't walk around beyond that point... More
The ticket counter is in the foyer, so you can walk into that area. From there you can see much of the rest of the lower section of the foyer, however, most of it was roped off so we couldn't walk around beyond that point until the tour began. The foyer is lovely, but if you have gone that far, you must be interested in the Opera House. I would recommend buying a ticket and taking the complete tour. We found the tour to be quite interesting.

This Guide tours are not advertised online and tickets can not be purchased online.For this tours I've recommend the tickets are sold on the side entrance and are first come first serves. They are tours every hour and start from 11:00 am until 16:00 pm last entry except days with special events when is no tours . Therefore you need to check in person at the Opera House entrance .
