Sala Terrena at the Deutschordenshaus
Mozart Ensemble Concerts
Not only is the Mozart Ensemble an insiders' tip among the friends of Viennese classic, but also the concert hall, albeit hardly known, is a jewel among the concert halls. The Sala Terrena is located on the ground floor of the Deutschordenshaus, in which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, only 25 years of age, was working and lodging with bishop Colloredo's entourage. Built in the second half of the eighteenth century, in the late Renaissance Venetian style, during the reign of Carl Borromäus Count Colloredo Waldsee (land commander from 1764 to 1786). A place of pleasure with its grotesque scenes of baroque sensuality, the floral paintings and the animal scenes. It is here in the Sala Terrena, where Mozart gave concerts for the Viennese aristocracy, even some of his concerts had their premiere at this very place.
How to get to the Sala Terrena
1010 Vienna (1st district)
|Concert hall||Sala Terrena|
By public transportation
The subway lines U1 and U3 both have a station at the Stephansplatz, which is right next to the Singerstraße. Also the bus lines A1, A2 and A3 have a station there. Just walk across Stephansplatz and down Singerstraße.
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.
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 or 81 400.
