If you're looking for a classical concert to partake of while in this beautiful city, be sure to see the Vienna Residence Orchestra. What a delight! Not only was there music, but also dancers and singers, and a bit of comedy thrown in.

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at
its finest: and this is what makes it popular with
locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small
independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood
cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town
palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts
have conquered distinctive places such as the Old
General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of
