Hotel Academia is a student hall of residence which is run as a hotel in July and August. It is situated in a quiet street in the university district just west of the city centre. It is within 15-20 minutes' walk of the main sight-seeing areas. There is a large dining room, where buffet meals will be served, a bar area and a large rehearsal room which will be locked when we are not using it, so instruments can be left there.

Accommodation will be in rooms of two and four, each with ensuite bath/shower. Towels are provided (2 per person) but there are no hair driers.

Our accommodation is half board . Usually this will mean breakfast and dinner. Look at the detailed itinerary for more information on when you have to provide your own meals.

During our week in Vienna, we will give three concerts, of which two will be at Schonbrunn Palace (pictured above) - one in the stunning Orangery and one outside in the gardens. The third venue is the Gustav Adolf Church in the Lutherplatz, not far from the centre of the city. There is much to see in Vienna itself, including a wealth of art, museums and historical buildings. The orchestra will be based in the Hotel Academia which is in the university part of Vienna and just 10-15 minutes walk from the main historical sights of the city. Accommodation will be three or four to a room, each with private bathroom.

Our stay includes 5 nights half-board at the hotel, insurance; all coach travel to and from Vienna.

The programme will be mainly Viennese music with pieces by Strauss, von Suppe, Mozart and Mahler.
