Guided tours

Special insights and outlooks

Take a glimpse behind the scenes of the world’s largest repertoire theatre and discover many things that remain hidden from the evening audience. On this approximately 40-minute tour, you will hear many interesting facts about the building’s history, its architecture and how an opera house is run. From the foyer, we take the grand staircase to the state rooms (Tea Salon, Marble Hall, Schwind Foyer, Gustav Mahler Hall) before we reach the auditorium (catching a look at the stage).

Our guided visits are offered in German and English at all indicated times. Reservations are not necessary for individuals.

Corona measures as of October 1st:

As of October 1st, a 2G certificate (Recovered - Vaccinated) will be required in the Vienna State Opera from the age of 12 - this must be presented when entering the building. 

Recovered means the presentation of a medical certificate or a certificate of segregation stating that the COVID-19 disease has been overcome no longer than 180 days ago, or the presentation of an antibody certificate that must not be older than 90 days. For already recovered persons who have been vaccinated once, the vaccination is valid for 360 days from the day of vaccination.
Vaccinated means that the second COVID-19 partial vaccination must have occurred no more than 360 days ago. For vaccines with only one vaccination (for example, Johnson & Johnson), the COVID-19 vaccination must have been given no longer than 270 days ago. 

Access testing for children: An admission test for children is required for ages 6 and older. For children under 12, a PCR test is 72 hours valid and antigen test 48 hours.

Since October 1, masks are no longer compulsory due to the 2G regulation. However, by wearing a mask you are contributing to the safety of everyone present. 



The ticket is also valid on the day of the tour as a voucher for €0.70 in the Gerstner Café in our opera foyer.
