Playing, dancing, singing: children, teenagers and families

2023/24 | 2024/25

At the Musikverein, children, young people and families have immersed themselves in a varied program for over 30 years. The lovingly staged concerts are unique: they are created in close co-operation with selected artists directly in and for the house – and our young audience. Playing along, dancing and singing along play an essential role at all concerts because musical development goes hand in hand with one’s actions.

Programme for kindergartens

Kindergarten groups can choose from a comprehensive concert program at the Musikverein. Three series, each with different artists, concepts and thematic areas, introduce children playfully to the world of music.

General information about attending concerts with children

Lower age limits

Please note the age recommendations at the events and refrain from visiting with younger children if possible.

Responsibility

Children subject to supervision can only attend our events accompanied by adults.

Food & Beverages

Please do not take food and beverages into the concert hall. Spilt drinks and leftovers on the ground pose a hazard.

Lap cards

Every concertgoer, regardless of age, must buy a ticket. We therefore ask for your understanding that we do not offer lap cards.

Floor pitches

Children can sit directly in front of the stage in the cleared hall in all children’s concerts (with the exception of the concert series “Capriccio” and the concert “Klassik-Hits im Goldenen Saal”). For adults, rows of chairs are available in the rear area of the hall. At our baby concert series “Dodo und Tatz”, the hall is carpeted on which children and adults can sit together.

Stage

Please make sure, for safety reasons, that your child only enters the stage if the artists expressly invite them. Children and adults can move freely in the room at the baby concerts “Dodo und Tatz”.

Strollers

At our baby concerts, “Dodo und Tatz”, there is a separate parking area for strollers and buggies in the foyer of the second basement floor. At all other events, stroller storage is minimal. We therefore ask you to come to the Musikverein without a stroller if possible.

Baby changing tables

At our baby concerts, “Dodo und Tatz” changing tables are prepared in the restrooms of the foyer in the second basement.

Cloakroom

Coats, bags, backpacks, bicycle helmets, umbrellas and folding chairs may not be taken into the hall for safety reasons. For safekeeping at the cloakroom, the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde reserves the right to charge a fee in cash. The cloakroom fee is included in the ticket price for children’s concerts in the New Halls and at all kindergarten and school events.
