The venue:

The Schoenbrunn Palace Concerts usually take place in the “Orangery”, a side building of the palace and in the “Great Gallery“, located in the main building. Both concert halls are quite long, so it is advisable to get seats in the front, even if it means to spend a little more.

The Great Gallery in Schoenbrunn Palace

The Great Gallery is 40 meters long and almost 10 meters wide and is the magnificent heart of Schoenbrunn Palace.
The candlelight in more than 60 gold-plated wall sconces and two heavy chandeliers, reflected by huge crystal mirrors, originally illuminated festive receptions and balls for kings and emperors in Vienna.
Today, candlelight is simulated by special LEDs for visit...ors to the castle.

The ceiling of the Great Gallery is dominated by the three large paintings by the Italian painter Gregorio Guglielmi.
The middle fresco depicts the well-being of the monarchy under the rule of Maria Theresa. Surrounded by the personified virtues of rule,
Franz Stephan and Maria Theresa are enthroned in the middle. Allegories of the crown lands with their respective riches are arranged around this central group.

The Great Gallery was extensively restored in 2010 over a period of two years.
