Are you expecting a group looking for a truly extraordinary experience? May we suggest you take them on a very unique journey back in time...

Der Zeremonienmeister im Schloss Schoenbrunn

This is a very special journey back in time which will start with a cocktail reception at the Imperial Court at Schoenbrunn Palace. After being welcomed by the master of ceremonies himself, he will guide you through Schoenbrunn Palace's royal chambers and ceremonial rooms while telling you details about life at the palace. He will not only introduce you to the mysterious fan language used at the Viennese Court, but also to the secrets of gavotte, a typical dance of the Baroque era.

Now that you are familiar with the royal family's official and private everyday life, you will have an exquisite candlelight dinner, which would have delighted emperors and kings alike.

Dinner is followed by an exclusive evening concert at the Baroque Orangery at Schoenbrunn Palace, where the Habsburgs used to have sumptuous festivities. It was here that the famous musical competition between Mozart and Salieri took place in 1786.

The Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra will then interpret the most beautiful works created by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johann Strauss. This captivating music is accompanied by masterful vocalists and ballet dancers. Feel the magic…
