Ceremonial hall at the University of Vienna

Concerts at Vienna University
Vienna Royal Orchestra

The current main building of the Vienna University on the Ringstraße was built between 1877 and 1884. Architect Heinrich Ferstel designed the building in the style of Italian High Renaissance, inspired by the universities of Padua and Genoa, creating a massive monumental building, referencing paragons from the Renaissance.

The ceremonial hall lies on the second floor of the Main Building.

The Main Building of the Vienna University lies on the Ringstraße, next to the station Schottentor of the subway line U2 and the tramway lines 1, 37, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 71 and D.

By car

As is the case with all concerts that take place in the first district (Innere Stadt), we recommend not to go there there by car. The first district is a labyrinth of narrow one-way streets and blind ends and parking is at best difficult, more often impossible. The area is also 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.

By taxi

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.

Let the Vienna Royal Orchestra take you away to an unique time period and enjoy a feast for the senses with entertainment at the highest artistic level!
