Schoenbrunn Palace - Concert

Vienna
4 out of 5 stars (4 reviews)

Description

Orangerie Schoenbrunn

The widowed Empress Wilhelmine Amalie had an orangery garden installed in Schoenbrunn with the purpose of overwintering her bitter orange plants inside a greenhouse. Even today, concerts are held in grand old style in this historical location. Clad in historical dress, the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra interprets the most famous works by Mozart and Strauss at the original location every evening.

Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna

Schoenbrunn Palace, or Schloss Schoenbrunn, together with its ancillary buildings and extensive park, belongs by virtue of its long and colourful history to the most important cultural monuments in Austria.The whole ensemble, including the palace, the park with its numerous architectural features, fountains and statues and not least the zoo - the oldest of its kind in the world - was placed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List late in 1996.

" As if it is the real Mozart and Strauss time "
5 out of 5 stars
The atmosphere created has led you to imagining it must be like that the time the Maestros live... Especially for someone like me from a country which is culturally different.... Very nice... Two thumbs up.
