The Opera is of course an acquired taste. But a visit to Vienna is incomplete wihtout watching at least one show!
At the very end of such an exciting day there’s nothing better than a relaxing visit to the opera. We know it sounds a bit old-fashioned, but the opera is a nice place. Plus you can enter really cheaply. The show usually starts at 7 or 7.30 PM. We recommend you to arrive between 6 and 6.30 PM at the opera and go for standing room tickets (2,50 Euros!). Usually there’s a queue of people who go for the same cheap tickets as you, but if you’re early enough you can get what you want. If the show is not too crowded you can also try to catch a seat as soon as the doors close. Enjoy the opera! It’s a great venue and extraordinary for taking pictures too.
