Palais Auersperg

Auerspergstrasse 1, Vienna, Vienna, 1080

The basics

Classical music fans flock to Palais Auersperg to take in the Mozart and Strauss concerts performed year-round in its historic hall, while the annual highlight is the white-tie New Year’s Eve extravaganza (Silvester Gala) with orchestra-backed dancing of waltzes and polkas. Purchase tickets for the regularly scheduled concerts and special events well in advance, as this spectacular hall that once hosted Mozart, Haydn, and Gluck sells out quickly. The palace sits near the Schönbrunn Palace and City Hall, so pause here on a walking or cycling tour of the city to admire its elaborate white facade.
