Vienna Hofburg Orchestra

In 1971, the best musicians from all the major Vienna orchestra associations joined forces under conductor Gert Hofbauer to form the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra.

Their declared aim was to cultivate Viennese waltz and operetta music, and to bring it to the world. Domestic and foreign radio and television productions, international engagements for symphonic concerts, as well as studio recordings have made the orchestra well-known and renowned.

The entrance is not actually in Josefsplatz, but in Heldenplatz. They should update their location, as I wasn't the only one who got lost and missed the first part of the concert (I met 2 other groups in the same situation). Apart from that, the hall and concerts are totally worth it!

Quality concert with beautiful voices of lyrical artists. A note of humor and a program essentially from the Strauss family particularly suited to a discovery of Vienna.I recommend 🎶

It's a lifetime's experience! I absolutely recommend it! There are so many music halls and so many concerts taking place in Vienna that it's hard to pick one. Aiming for the New Year's concert next year!

Wiener Hofburg OrchesterWow! What a special occasion. On 4 May 2019, my wife and I attended a memorable concert program offered by the Wiener Hofburg Orchester in the actual Hofburg Palace of Vienna. We were treated to an evening filled with inspiring music played by excellent musicians, singing by a pair of professional soloists, and dancing by a lovely ballet couple. The comical antics of the orchestra drummer are not to be missed! This palace is the perfect venue to hold such cultural events. We highly recommend this program to both Austrians and Foreign Tourists, alike!Keep in mind, that while walking the streets of Central Vienna, you will be offered tickets to concert presentations from many different companies and it is difficult to tell them apart. The Wiener Hofburg Orchester offers the program of choice! We happily give it a 5 star rating. Enjoy a wonderful cultural evening of music, song and dance!
