Innovative concerts by the Wiener Symphoniker
Bühne beim Prater-Picknick 2023

A concert hall can be anywhere: in a pub, in a cage or on the Kaiserwiese in front of the Giant Ferris Wheel! No orchestra is as deeply rooted in Vienna as the Wiener Symphoniker - as demonstrated by its unusual concert formats and venues.

Prater Picnic

Just in time for the end of school, the Wiener Symphoniker invite you to a summer open-air concert for the whole family in the Vienna Prater.

Beisl Concerts

At the Beisl concerts, various ensembles of the Wiener Symphoniker perform on one evening in many pubs in a street or neighbourhood and present themselves in a cosy atmosphere - without tailcoats, but with lots of music!


The perfect way to get in the mood for the weekend starts at seven on Fridays. The concert in the Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus is followed by a relaxed musical finale in the Grand Foyer - the evening's artists playing chamber music or improvising jazz.


For their Grätzl concerts, the Wiener Symphoniker leave their traditional venues in the city centre and come to their audiences at new and unusual concert venues on the outskirts of Vienna.


For the concerts in the "Im Klang" series, the Wiener Symphoniker leave their place on the podium and form up in the empty parterre of the Great hall. The audience is invited to mingle with the musicians in order to sit in the middle of the orchestra, in the middle of "the sound".

Käfig concerts

At the Käfig concerts, the Wiener Symphoniker, in cooperation with the cultural association ARGE Henriette, transforms Vienna's football and play cages into a creative stage for the entire neighbourhood community. More at www.kaefigkonzerte.at
