Hofburgkapelle (Chapel of the Imperial Palace)
Hofburgkapelle (Chapel of the Imperial Palace) Review
Fittingly, this is the main venue for the beloved Vienna Boys' Choir, since the group has its roots in the Hofmusikkapelle choir founded by Emperor Maximilian I five centuries ago (Haydn and Schubert were both participants as young boys). The choir sings mass here at 9:15 on Sunday from mid-September to June (tickets, ranging in price from €5 to €29, are sold to hear the choir). Be aware that you hear the choirboys but don't see them: soprano and alto voices peal forth from a gallery behind the seating area. In case you miss out on tickets to the Sunday performance, note that just to the right of the chapel entrance a door leads into a small foyer. Here a television screen shows the whole mass for free.
