On selected dates, the concert take place in the Great Gallery of in the White-an-Gold-Room in the main building of Schönbrunn Palace without ballet.
With its imperial atmosphere the Great Gallery is the ideal alternative venue for the daily classical concerts. From the mid-eighteenth century onwards, the Great Gallery was used for balls, receptions and as a banqueting hall. Since the foundation of the Republic of Austria the Great Gallery has been used as a venue for concerts and official receptions. In 1961 the legendary encounter between the American president John F. Kennedy and the Russian head of state Nikita Khrushchev took place in this room.
In this intimate setting you can experience the musical performance up close! The White-and-Gold Room is situated on the ground floor of Schönbrunn Palace. With its white-and-gold-panelled walls and varying rocaille décor it is an outstanding example of Rococo craftsmanship from the era of Maria Theresa. During the restoration in the beginning of the 2000s, fragments of the original wooden flooring displaying an elaborate geometric pattern were discovered; the new floor was subsequently based on this historical model.
