Please note that there is a different, albeit similarly named, Palais Schönborn (without "Batthyány") in the 8th district. If you go to the concert hall by taxi, make sure that the driver takes you to the Palais Schönborn Batthyány in the 1st district.
By public transport
The Palais can be reached from the subway station Herrengasse of the U3 and the station Schottentor of subway-line U2.
As is the case with all concerts that take place in the first district (Innere Stadt), we recommend to not go there by car.
Vienna's first district is a labyrinth of narrow one-way streets and blind ends and parking is at best difficult, more often impossible.
Please note that all of Vienna is a short-term parking zone (Kurzparkzone) from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 22:00 with a maximum parking time of two hours. Prepaid parking vouchers may be purchased at tobacconists, all points of advance sale and ticket machines at all Vienna public transport underground stations, automobile clubs ARBÖ and ÖAMTC and some petrol/gas stations or online with your mobile phone at www.handyparken.at (registration required).
Taxis are a reliable and common means to get to your concert. Taxis are usually found at train stations and at taxi stands all over the city. Or you can order a taxi by calling: 31 300, 60 160, 40 100 oder 81 400.
