    We feel cheated.
    Bernt_F
    , May 2022
    We feel cheated. We had really looked forward to an evening at Schønbrunn Castle with dinner and a concert. Unfortunately, the experience was a big disappointment. We were picked up at the castle square in a mini train that is used for a guided tour. We were driven behind the attractions so that all the sights were either hidden behind a fence or behind a hedge. A three-course dinner was completed in about 40 minutes on an outdoor cafe terrace. The starter was a simple soup, the main course was cooked meat with indefinable sauce and the dessert was a simple apple pie. The wait staff was so busy that they cleared the table before we finished eating. In addition, drinks were not included in the ticket and we got the most overpriced cheap wines, (10 euros per person). The concert was in the Orangery, a beautiful venue but without any kind of air cooling. It was hot outside, it became almost unbearably hot in the room. The concert ticket was in group C, far back in the venue, which are seats of such low quality that it was difficult to enjoy an otherwise very nice concert. As a little curiosity, it was stamped on the ticket a price. This was 94 euros, which, if we had bought tickets ourselves, would have brought us between group A and VIP - that is, right in front of the room with excellent contact with the orchestra. In summary - this is an overpriced event where you are clearly treated like a C customer. Poorly arranged, a very ordinary dinner and very cheap seats in a part of the venue where, as I said, you do not benefit from the concert. (By the way, you are also much disturbed by sitting right next to the break room, which is cleared of wine glasses after the break). The orchestra maintains a very good standard and had it not been for this, the event would have received an even weaker rating. The marketing of this event is very misleading. Order tickets directly from the orangery and treat yourself to a luxurious dinner elsewhere for the same price.

    The concert was actually held in the palace. Magnificent! The vocalists, especially the soprano, were the best I have ever heard. This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Vienna.

    Concert worth the total amount. The musicians, the vocalist and the staff helping… no words for them… really professionals!!! Dinner DO NOT HAVE IT!!! It’s not even close to the event. … let’s say… without the dinner the experience worth more.

    This was a elegant evening with a train ride through the vast estate of the Palace to and from dinner. When we got to the dinner spot it was a cute place. I did feel a little rushed through dinner when we had plenty of time. The food choices were none wish we could have a veggie option not just before had we known. The concert was magical in the great gallery of the palace. Overall a wonderful evening

    Date Night in Vienna

    , May 2022
    Overall this was a lovely experience. The Schönbrunn Orangerie is incredible and is a fabulous palace to view a concert. The dinner was OK but not exceptional. The orchestra was good but they did have some issues with tempo and tuning. For example, the third and fourth violins struggled to keep pace and stay in tune. The female opera singer was absolutely amazing! The male singer left something to be desired.

    Gods but be careful
    Joo_N
    , Apr 2022
    Dinner was nothing special but it was good, we were limited to one plate, the drinks were very expensive for one dish, a liqueur cost €5.90 but it was served in a shot glass that is not worth it, the concert was very good and very interactive, the restaurant is not inside the palace, it is close to it and the concert is in a restored room with projectors to give the effect of an old painting on the ceilings. waiters are always offering everything but nothing is included beware!!!!
    icon Response from Host , May 2022
    Dear Joo_N, thank you for your feedback on our Schönbrunn Palace Concerts! Regarding the dinner location: It is not in our power to decide how expensive the drinks will be sold in the restaurant. What is certain is that we always communicate our dinner without drinks in the program. Nevertheless, we hope you had a great time! Warm regards from Vienna!

    Very nice evening
    Kathleen_L

    Very nice evening. The dinner venue was quite nice, but it had the feel of a modern eatery instead of the palatial dining I had hoped to experience. Tables were too close together, lights in the dining room were bright, and it was not very romantic. Service was good. Food was good.

    It was an extremely fun and entertaining evening, and the VIP package was well worth the price. The dinner was lovely, although it was quite a bit of a walk between the restaurant and the Orangerie.

    Music trumps meal

    , Dec 2019
    The orchestra were as expected excellent and the concert was very enjoyable with some singing and dancing included. Given the quality of the show it was a little disappointing that the meal beforehand did not reach the same high standards. It would have been 4/5 for the concert alone. Encourage people to come earlier , enjoy a drink and pre order for the interval.

    All round, this is an excellent "tour" - the food beforehand was delicious and the concert itself was incredible. If you can afford to get the higher priced tickets, these are only really worth it to get a better view of the dancers. But the actual performance does carry through the venue as the acoustics and sound system are well managed.

    Missed the dinner
    Sharon_D
    , Aug 2019
    When I booked the dinner and concert, I hadn't factered in a major train delay which disrupted my arrival into Vienna. I tried to ring the venue to ask them if they could hold my meal. When I arrived (half an hour late), they told me that the kitchen had closed and no dinner for me. I was directed to several restaurants across the road where I ordered, ate and still made it back with 20 minutes to spare. Not very helpful staff at the venue. The concert however was wonderful and I would recommend it and would certainly attend in the future if I make it back to Vienna. 0/10 for dinner and 10/10 for the concert

    My entire family went to the palace for dinner and a concert; it was excellent!! The only problem was that the entire family could not sit at one table for dinner, which I had asked for. We were split into two groups. It was disappointing because we were celebrating our 50th anniversary.

    The Concert was superb. I was afraid...

    , Dec 2017
    The Concert was superb. I was afraid the performers would be churning out the same programme for tourists every evening but they were talented, dynamic and full of life. It was over all too quickly. The meal was disappointing. Bland and not especially tasty. Once we added drinks with dinner and a taxi out to the Schonbrunn, this was a very expensive evening. We might have done better to attend Concert only.

    Concert was more hilarious than I guess it should have been. Especially when the dancers arrived!! Was a good experience in a beautiful setting, but the food wasn't up to much, the range of drinks was limited and the concert just ok!
