The Rich History of the Musikverein

The Rich History of the Musikverein 0

Adored by music lovers from around the globe, the Musikverein is a fabulous concert hall in the Innere Stadt district of Vienna and is the home of the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra. Inside the magnificent building is the Great Hall (or Großer Saal), widely considered to be one of the finest concert halls in the world, thanks to its superb acoustics. The spectacular hall hasn’t been changed since it was originally constructed centuries ago, and shares the long, tall and narrow shoebox shape of other highly acclaimed music halls, such as Berlin's Konzerthaus.
