Evening at Schönbrunn Palace: Tour, Dinner, and Concert
- Duration options: 6 hours - 1 day
- Optional audio guide
The food and the concert were outstanding and we all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We had a voucher for the event which was to be exchanged for tickets before the meal/concert started. Luckily, we went to exchange ours in the morning & this was an absolute nightmare. Nobody knew where we were supposed to get our tickets from, we were mis-directed 4 times by members of staff who were rude & unhelpful. It took us well over an hour to get it sorted & we literally walked miles round the venue. We noticed a man try to get into the concert with his voucher & he was turned away. The whole system is completely ridiculous, there must be a better way. Next time I would buy tickets directly. So meal & concert rated as 5 star. Ticket system gets nil points!
Absolutely beautiful experience. The Palace was magnificent. Shame we couldn’t take photos inside. We took the Grand Tour and the culture and history on show is awesome. We then had dinner which was only ok. But the highlight of the night was the concert. It was incredible. The concert included opera singers, dancers and musicians. It was wonderful and would highly recommend it. The only criticism was that we had front row seats and at intermission we had to wait a long time for our complimentary champagne because hundreds of others seated at the rear of the concert room were served first and yet we paid considerably more for our tickets.
Whole evening ran like clockwork. Very nice meal with excellent service followed by a lovely concert. Very windy evening & a bit of a walk between the restaurant & concert theatre so we did need proper outerwear, so a word of warning to others - you may need a brolly!
The dinner was perfect. The concert was magnificent; you could tell the instrumentalists and the two vocalists gave put their hearts and souls into the performance. Definitely value for money in such a wonderful venue.
Truly magical experience!!! Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Would also recommend that they purchase option A seating as we did, I think the experience would have been totally different at the back!!!
