Know More about this tour

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, though born in Salzburg, found his home in Vienna, where he achieved fame composing many of his best-known symphonies, concertos and operas. So where better to enjoy a concert of his beautiful music?

Your evening begins as you make your own way to Restaurant Bristol, located in the Hotel Bristol, next to the Vienna state opera. Youll be in good company here; the 1892 hotel has hosted such illustrious names as Teddy Roosevelt, composer George Gershwin, opera star Enrico Caruso and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Make yourself comfortable at your table and enjoy an aperitif while taking in the surroundings of this elegant Viennese restaurant. Then feast on your 3-course gourmet dinner of Austrian and international dishes (if you prefer, you have the option to eat dinner after the concert instead). After having satisfied your tummy, youll be ready to delight your ears.

The Musikverein is a 5-minute walk from the restaurant, so head there on your own when youre finished with dinner. Inaugurated by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1870, it is one of Europes most famous concert halls, known for its fabulous acoustics, and is the home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Make your way to your seat and enjoy your entertainment by the Vienna Mozart Orchestra. Hear overtures, arias and duets from some of Mozarts famous operas, like Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro and The Magic Flute, and listen to movements from symphonies and serenades such as Eine kleine Nachtmusik and Symphony No. 40. Youll also get a little variety with some additional music by Johann Strauss.

When the concert is over, hum Mozart tunes all the way back to your hotel (or to Restaurant Bristol, if youve chosen a post-concert dinner). If that still isnt enough for you, pop in your complimentary Mozart CD, given to you at the concert!

    The dinner was fabulous...elegant. the seats were bad..top of concert hall, 3rd row from back. Couldn't see the musicians. I think if we were down further it would have been more enjoyable..plus it was so hot on the top...no AC. Plus side got a CD of music

    We had dinner at shoreline Bristol, which was a beautiful place and the food and service were great
    The concert was wonderful, the golden hall is stunning,
    We were disappointed that so many people ignored the dress code and also some were taking photos all the way through which was annoying,
    We enjoyed the concert very much

    Excellent dinner at famous Bristol Hotel across from the Opera House and short walk to concert venue Musikverein where televised New Year's concert is held in Golden Hall. Excellent concert with orchestra in period costumes. Was thrilled that orchestra did several encores and included the traditional Blue Danube Waltz and the General Radetzky March, which was not on the all-Mozart program. We purchased Superior seats and were seated in the 8th row of the Brahms Hall. The concert was sold out, so there was no ability to move up to more expensive seating, as recommended on Trip Advisor. Underground was very accessible for return to our hotel. Recommendation: Would highly recommend that the concert playlist be published for review on Viator website to facilitate selection of activity.

    The evening started with dinner at the Bristol. This was absolutely fine, limited choice but that's to be expected. The food and service was good. The concert itself was very good. The problem was our seats. We paid (quite a lot) extra for Category A seats which promised us seats either nearer the front or balcony. We were allocated seats in row 22. This may have have been nearer the front than the back rows, but not by much. Had we known this was where we were to be seated then we would probably still have gone but would have saved ourselves a lot of money by getting cheaper seats.

    The first part of the evening (restaurant) was amazing! The exceptional customer service, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, the delicious meals - it was just super! Thank you Bristol Restaurant!
    The second part of the evening (the concert itself) was less enjoyable. The Musikverein and the Mozart orchestra were great! But... the spectators... It is what really ruined the experience. Despite the special request on the web site "Smart evening attire is required; no sneakers, jeans or shorts are permitted in the concert hall" the crowd was wearing whatever you can imagine: dirty old t-shirts, baseball caps, sport suits. We haven't seen people wearing swimming suites, thanks God! Just few people were dressed up appropriate for the classic concert event.
    Also, there was an announcement in the beginning of the concert on several languages: "No photo and video should be taken during the performance". Needless to say it was absolutely ignored.

    This was a very nice evening. Dinner at the Hotel Bristol was delicious and the hotel was posh and elegant. You'll want to dress appropriately. Then it was a quick walk to the Musikverein concert hall. Our terrific tour guide from the previous day, Franz, had pointed out that the statues along the walls of the hall help with the acoustics and he was right. Speaking as someone who has had season tickets to the ballet for years and therefore have had a lot of exposure to classical music, I can say that the quality of the musicians and singers was excellent. The show itself was well produced and entertaining.

    The dinner at the Bristol hotel was nothing special. The salmon was overdone and the steak was as well. Everything else was OK. The concert in the Musikverein was good. The problem were the wooden seats which were uncomfortable. The programs were six euro. For what we paid they should have been included. I believe it's better to go to dinner on your own and see a concert at the Vienna State Opera House.

    We arrived at the Hotel Bristol in good time for our 6pm meal. I had my Viator acknowledgement with me which is just as well as the hotel had never heard of us! The Maitre d' was excellent, seated us and had us served like long lost clients - and then went to chase up our vouchers and tickets for the concert. He returned, said all was in hand, our tickets would be delivered and we should relax and enjoy our meal - which we did, enormously. I thought the quality was very good and the sevice/style was impeccable. Our tickets duly arrived and as we left, the concierge pointed us in the direction of the Musikverein. It was beautifully lit and we were excited to continue with the evening. Although busy, we were soon admitted and advised of our seats. I had purchased cat B seats, not A or C yet still found myself about 5 rows from the back. Bit of a dodge going on here? The acoustic of the hall is world renowned and sure enough the clarity of sound was excellent. Less so the view as many in the audience often repeatedly, refused to put away camera-phones and tablets. Seemed to be quite a few such ignorant and selfish people......
    The orchestra was capable and played well, if a little on auto-pilot - perhaps as one might expect as they were playing the same old pot-boilers - with that irritating habit of one movement from a concerto or symphony. Pity that on our evening they had only managed to find one double bass player so the sound was a little 'light'. The conductor clearly has a nice sense of communication with the audience as he led the clapping in the obligatory Radetsky March. That and the equally compulsory Blue Danube closed the programme.
