Fodor's Review

If the whirling waltzes of Strauss are your thing, head to the Johann Strauss concerts at the Wiener Kursalon, a majestic palace-like structure built in the Italian Renaissance Revival style in 1865 and set in Vienna's sylvan Stadtpark. Here, in gold-and-white salons, the Salonorchester Alt Wien performs concerts of the works of "Waltz King" Johann Strauss and his contemporaries. You'll hear waltzes, polkas, and operetta melodies, replete with singers, dancers, and your own glass of champagne (no dancing by the audience allowed).
