Advent in Austria would not be the same without the reflective harmonies of the traditional advent songs and classical music. If you are planning your holiday during this quiet time of the year we suggest your visit a performance in one of the concert venues or churches. Also here Vienna deserves its title as capital of music.


At the weekends the "International Advensingen" is staged in the Rathaus where 90 local and international choirs perform traditional Advent and Christmas songs. You will be able to hear many of these choirs again at the various Christmas Markets.


A highlight is "Christmas in Vienna" with stars like Juan Diego Florez or the Vienna Boys' Choir accompanied by the Viennese Radio-Symphony Orchestra. This big Gala will take place on the 20th of December 2014 - our ticket expert Christine Dirnberger will be pleased to organise tickets of your choice.


For those who enjoy classical music we recommend the contemplative advent concerts in the Stephansdom - St Stephen's Cathedral - with works by Mozart, Bach, Schubert and Haydn. If you prefer brass ensembles there is the possibility of visiting the festive concert "Trompetenzauber in der Annakirche" - "trumpet magic" in a beautiful baroque church in the first district.


Opera lovers will not miss out either during the Christmas season. Operas and ballets are one offer, amongst these also THE Christmas ballet "The Nutcracker" in the Viennese State Opera. The Volksoper - the folk operacaters more for the younger audience with "the Wizard of Oz", "Hansel and Gretel" or "Märchenweltballett" - "fairy tale ballet".


Panorama Tours & Travel will be pleased to organise tickets of your choice. For those wanting to attend a festive concert on Christmas Eve we warmly recommend the concert of the "Schloss Schönbrunn Ensemble" in the Orangerie of Schönbrunn Palace, the "Salonorchester Alt Wien" in the Viennese Kursalon.
