Located in a basin at the northern foot of the Alps, Wien is the smallest federal state in Austria, covering 414.65 square kilometers, and the only one adjacent to other countries. Because of its important position, Vienna is the Federal State with the largest traffic and building area in Austria.
The Vienna State Opera is among the top three opera houses in the world. I have never seen a better opera performances in the world and tickets can be bought for little money. The opera house is an architectural jewel in the inner city and a absoultly must see of a stay in Vienna.
The best opera house in Europe. Saw l'Elisir d'Amour here, amazing acoustics, beautiful facilities, it made the visit to Vienna absolutely divine.
Famous Opera house where also the most famous Ball takes places.Tickets from low till very high available
Great opera house. close to the center. Tourist friendly as you have english subtitles for operas.
Only 5 minutes with the U2 subway
You can take a guided tour of the building for only 6 euros, but seeing a ballet or opera here is worth every penny. The whole experience is gorgeous. One tip- you can reserve drinks at the orchestra-level (parkett) bar for a specific intermission, so they are waiting for you at a table when you come out. Very convenient.
