Tips for your visit
As a rendezvous, the statue of Beethoven in the Grand Foyer is the most popular, central and easy-to-find meeting point.
For Early Arrivals
Access to the auditoria of the Konzerthaus is normally granted 45 minutes before the start of an event. Beforehand, early comers may care to enjoy the buffet at the Berio Hall or the wine bar near the Beethoven statue in the Grand Foyer – both open until 10 minutes before the start of a performance.
For further information please go to Food & Drink.
After the Concert
To round off the evening at the Konzerthaus, why not enjoy the culinary delights of the house's own Restaurant Weinzirl? In addition to serving dinners, vegetarian and main courses designed around fish or meat, the restaurant offers its specialty, «Schmankerln», warm and cold delicacies as a way of sampling its seductive cuisine.

Events for and Concert Visits with Children
The Wiener Konzerthaus has special events for children up to the age of 12 years (e.g. the Piccolo» and «Concertino» cycles).
However, children from the age of 5 years are also welcome at all other Wiener Konzerthausgesellschaft events. However, the management asks the concert goers, both with interests of the child as well as those of other members of the audience in mind, not to have a child – irrespective of the child's age – accompany them if the child's level of maturity and behaviour is not attuned to the demands of a concert visit.
The management notes that, for reasons of safety, no prams or strollers are permitted in any concert hall, not even for children's events.
The encore notification service of the Wiener Konzerthaus can inform you via text message within minutes after the end of the concert which encores were played - naturally, only for those concerts you bought tickets for. Please register here.
You can find the titles of the encores performed at concerts on our website, one day after the concert. Click first on the tab Programme & Tickets and klick on the chosen concert.
