House of Music

The House of Music is a multi-media world of experience. Experimentation is called for here: visitors paint sounds with their fingers and direct the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The acoustic journey ranges from pre-natal hearing experiences to the development of the human ear and the first musical instruments right through to the sounds of the Cosmos. Geniuses such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss are presented with original music scores, programs, costumes and personal items. On the top floor of the Sound Museum, the Restaurant Huth offers fine Austrian cuisine with a wonderful view over the rooftops of Vienna.

Do & See

Vienna has over 100 museums and countless examples of great architecture seamlessly combining old and new designs. When you've got enough sightseeing for the day, rest in one of the 280 parks and gardens scattered around the city.
