As one of the world's most beautiful concert halls and most decorative and striking buildings on Vienna's Ringstrasse, the Musikverein can be best appreciated in the setting of a concert. However, the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde is also opening the doors of this magnificent building for public tours.
Public tours usually take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The exact times can be found in the selection field below. Since the Musikverein is not a museum, but a lively concert venue, it can rarely happen that guided tours have to be postponed or canceled due to rehearsals or technical modifications. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask for your understanding. *
When choosing the desired tour, please note the different languages offered which are German and English. The special tours on the subjects "Building history of the 4 new halls", "Acoustics" and "Scandals & excitement in the Musikverein" take place in German only. In order to enjoy the tour it is essential to understand the chosen language. We also offer group tours in other languages. For group tours please contact us as indicated below. During regular guided tours it is not possible to translate into another language.
If you wish to visit the Musikverein with a group (>8 people) a separate booking is necessary. Please fill in the form if you want to book such a tour. We will answer as soon as possible.
