Event details
Composer/Organizer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart , Johann Strauss

During the course of his remarkable career, Mozart never failed to come back to the place where it had all started: Schoenbrunn. At the early age of six, he took his first steps towards an international career by performing for Empress Maria Theresia in Schoenbrunn. Years later, he had his musical duel with his eternal rival Salieri at Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery. Some of his works had their world premiere here at the Orangery.

Have an evening of royal pleasures just like the royalty in times long past: start by walking through the sumptuous palace and enjoy a grand finale at Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery, embarking on a musical journey with the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra. Following your tour of the palace's ceremonial rooms, the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra will take you on a journey to the world of Mozart and Strauss, accompanied by singing and dance - performed exclusively for you at Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery.

Palace visit

Start your journey with a visit of the ceremonial rooms of world-famous Schoenbrunn Palace, the most popular sightseeing spot in Austria. Individual guests will receive an audioguide and may take the palace tour anytime during the palace's official opening hours. Since there is no need for making an appointment, you are free to visit the palace at any day or time or your choice while in Vienna. Groups of 10 and up will enjoy an exclusive guided tour given by one of the palace's guides, after the palace has closed for the public and quieted down. Mozart would have been delighted...


Mozart would have loved it. The palace tour is followed by dinner at "Residenz" restaurant. You will enjoy dishes that are typical of Mozart's time.


Upon arriving at the Orangery, every guest will be served an aperitif. Every guest will furthermore receive a program for the concert, including numerous illustrations, pictures and information about the Orangery, Schoenbrunn Palace, the orchestra and the soloists. To round thing off, the welcome package includes a "Best of Mozart CD", performed by the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra. In order for you to enjoy the wonderful selection of classical music - the most beautiful melodies, opera and operetta arias by Mozart and Strauss - to the maximum, we have reserved seats in the two front rows. During the intermission, join us for a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a typical Austrian sweet - Mozart Ball - at the bar.

Palace tour
Empress Maria Theresa made Schloss Schoenbrunn into her magnificent summer residence. All her successors resided at the palace during summer and ruled the empire from there. Especially Emperor Franz Joseph liked to spend his time at the Palace Schoenbrunn. Take a tour of the glamorous and private rooms of the emperors accompanied by an audio guide. For groups of 10 people or more a separate guide will be available to show you the apartments of Maria Theresa exclusively and outside the regular opening times of the palace.


At the Ehrenhof ('Court of Honor'), right beside the entrance of Schloss Schoenbrunn, in the rooms of the former imperial kitchen lies the Café-Restaurant Residenz. Here, you will enjoy a three-course dinner by candlelight. In summer, dinner is served on the cozy outside dining area.


In walking distance from the main entrance to Schloss Schoenbrunn and the Café-Restaurant Residenz lies the Orangery Schoenbrunn. Since imperial times, this was a place for courtly festivities and banquets. During one of these events Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri held a unique music contest. In this historic ambience the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra performs the most beautiful works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss.

From the beginning of April to the end of October, at Christmas and at New Year's Eve, the concert will be performed by the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra in grand cast. In late autumn and in winter the concert will be performed by the Schoenbrunn Chamber Ensemble.


The Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery

The widowed Empress Wilhelmine Amalie had an orangery garden installed in Schoenbrunn with the purpose of overwintering her bitter orange plants inside a greenhouse.

Even today, concerts are held in grand old style in this historical location. Clad in historical dress, the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra interprets the most famous works by Mozart and Strauss at the original location every evening.
