Vienna
Classical music concert in Vienna

There is a reason why Vienna is called “The City of Music”. The bus will take you to one of the best chamber orchestras in the musical world of Vienna. Excellent opera singers, talented musicians and graceful solo ballet dancers will let you experience the warmth and charm of the lovely Vienna. This performance takes you on a journey through time, to experience the imperial Vienna, where the beautiful compositions from the likes of “the Waltz King” Johann Strauss and W. A. Mozart, will leave you amazed. Your evening will be filled with swinging waltz melodies, polkas and operetta melodies of the highest artistic level. The trip on the Ring Road back to the ship forms a perfect conclusion to the lovely evening.
