Welcome Desk

You're now in the Vienna Philharmonic exhibition, overlooking the Welcome Desk. This is open all year round from 10:00 am until 6 pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
To your left is the Waltz Dice Game, and the black doors on your right lead to our cinema showing the latest New Year's Concert and Summer Night Concert.
