The tour of the opera house was fantastic! The tour guides were very informative and gave tours in multiple languages.

We saw Raymonda at the Opera House and loved the experience. The building is very grand, architecturally superb and the perfect backdrop for opera and ballet. We highly recommend a visit for a night out during a stay in Vienna

Extraordinary experience. Very difficult choreography of Noureev. The three hours of performance pass incredibly quickly. There is only disturbing thing. Tourist are not able to keep their mouth and disturb the others passionate spectators. And they don´t dress properly for such a magnificent place.

It’s Amazing to look at, if you take a horse and carriage it should pass by the opera house and it’s very romantic.
