Admission time

The Musikverein building will open 1 hour before the start of an event. As a rule, admission to the hall is granted 30 minutes before the start of the performance. Please note that latecomers can only be admitted during the concert intermission or any applause break once a performance has begun. Admission is not possible during a pause in the performance. This also applies to seats in the parterre, balcony boxes, and standing-room visitors.

Dress code

We look forward to welcoming you to our concerts and events in clothing appropriate to the occasion.

Image and/or sound recordings

Visitors are not permitted to make video and/or audio recordings before, during and after the performance without special permission. At events, the organizer or persons authorized by the organizer may make industry-standard audio, video or film recordings of the event. It cannot be ruled out that visitors may also be recognizable as part of the event’s audience in such recordings. These recordings may be made and subsequently used commercially without any time or space restrictions, provided that no legitimate interests of the visitors depicted are violated. Visitors to such events are not entitled to any compensation for the recordings made of them during or in connection with the event.


For security reasons, coats, bags, backpacks, umbrellas and folding chairs may not be taken into the hall – not even to the standing room. The Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna reserves the right to charge a fee for storing your clothing and luggage.


The gastronomic offer in the Musikverein, before, during and after the performance, is provided exclusively by Gerstner Catering. The buffet in the Erste Bank foyer is open one hour before the start of the performance. In the Gottfried-von-Einem-Saal on the first floor, a rich buffet is available during breaks. In addition to the bars to the left and right of the standing parterre, there are also bars on the gallery level if required. To avoid waiting times during the concert break, you can pre-order your selection from Gerstner.
