Schönbrunns Baroque park turns every summer for an evening in a festive open-air concert hall. On Thursday, May 31th 2018 from 08:30 pm, the annual Open-Air Summer Night Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic will take place in the unique ambience of Schönbrunn Palace and the Park, which is part of UNESCU World Cultural Heritage.
Superlative Concert with free admission
The festively illuminated Schönbrunn Palace, former summer residence of the Habsburgs, the baroque park and the Gloriette offer the fairly-tale settings for this atmospheric concert event.
With this beautiful free concert in Schönbrunn, the world-famous Viennese Philharmonic will offer all lovers of classical music, whether locals or tourists a unique experience in front of the famous Neptune Fountain. This year Russian conductor Valery Gergiev and opera star Anna Netrebko will provide an unforgettable evening of great and uplifting music. Under the motto “An Italian Night”, works from operas and the ballet repertoire of Italian and Russian composers are on the program.
Since this is a concert with free admission, no reservations are necessary. As in previous years, approx. 100,000 visitors are expected at this event. At dawn at around 08:30 pm, the Summer Night Concert begins. Seating is limited and available from 05:00pm. The three main entrances to the Schönbrunner Schlosspark are open until 00:00pm on this evening.
