Podium sessions, receptions, gala dinners

The Schwind Foyer, named after the painter Moritz von Schwind, is designed in the style of historicism, and dedicated to the art form of opera. Stone busts of composers frame the hall in airy height, below Schwind painted scenes of well-known works - from Der Freischütz to Le nozze di Figaro.

In addition, busts of great conducting directors can be admired: Mahler, Strauss, Karajan, Böhm and others.

The adjoining loggia shows rich ornamentation as well as scenes and figures from Mozart's Die Zauberflöte. Both rooms were extensively restored during the 150th anniversary of the Vienna State Opera in 2019 and shine in new splendour.
