Accessibility in the Wiener Konzerthaus

People with handicaps should be able to participate in and enjoy the artistic offerings of the Wiener Konzerthaus as independently as possible. All halls are accessible via lift. And there are also dedicated wheelchair spaces which can be purchased — with or without a companion – online, via telephone or in person at our Ticket- und Service-Center.

In order to make the Wiener Konzerthaus even more accessible and enable all people to participate in musical events, we have set up a new fundraising campaign entitled #gemeinsamfüralle. Click here for more information.
