The basics

The Vienna Boys Choir is divided into four touring choirs, so it’s possible to catch a show in Vienna even when other choristers are singing at international events. There are two main performance spaces. The choir regularly sings at Mass in Hofburgkapelle—the Hofburg Chapel—and other shows are held at MuTh, a dedicated concert hall. Advance bookings are essential, and tickets are available for purchase online.

Things to know before you go

  • Sung Mass is part of the full religious service; if you prefer music only, opt for a performance at MuTh.
  • The choir performs above and behind the congregation at Mass, and the singers are out of sight for much of the service.
  • Photos are not allowed during Mass, but the choir performs a final song at the front of the church with photos and video invited.

When to get there

Sunday Masses with the Vienna Boys Choir are held from September to June, and other performances are held regularly throughout the year. The most sought-after seats are best reserved months in advance, but budget-friendly tickets can often be purchased the week—or even the day—of the choir performance. If you’re attending Mass, plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before it begins.

Where to Sit at the Vienna Boys Choir Mass

You can pick out seats when booking tickets, and booking well in advance means the chance to score the best views in the house. On the first floor, most seats have good views. On the first and second balconies, try for seating in the first few rows. Unless you’re seated upfront, the side rooms have somewhat obstructed views. The stairs to the balcony are steep and narrow, making ground-floor seating a good choice for visitors who prefer to avoid them.
