An orchestra rehearsal in Auersperg Palace

Sit in on an orchestral rehearsal in a Vienna palace with a musical pedigree

Originally known as the Palais Rosenkavalier, the Baroque Palais Auersperg (Auersperg Palace) was built for a noble family early in the 18th century, and eventually became the setting of musical classes, concerts, and even significant events – like a performance of Mozart's "Idomeneo," conducted by the composer himself. Over the centuries, the Palais was used not only as a residence, ballroom and concert hall but also as offices, a film studio, and even a hiding place for Resistance members during World War II. Today, you'll sit in on a rehearsal for an orchestra performance in this historic venue.

Tauck Exclusive – Imperial Evening at Palais Pallavicini

Our gala Imperial Evening at a private palace in Vienna

Built in 1784, the sumptuous Palais Pallavicini is a grand private palace in the heart of Vienna whose magnificent Baroque touches transport you to another time. Join us at the Palais for a gala evening featuring a reception, dinner and classical performances sure to sweep you off your feet... and let you experience firsthand how Europe's cultured classes lived and were entertained centuries ago. And film fans will note that the Palais and its elegant facade served as rogue Harry Lime's postwar Vienna apartment in the Cold War classic "The Third Man."

The trip was wonderful. The two maestros were not only accomplished musicians but shared their knowledge with easy and humor.

Everything from start to finish was outstanding. All tour directors and our "maestros" were very experienced and friendly. The Savor was beautifully appointed with an experienced friendly staff. The pianist in the lounge was so talented and personable. We loved our very comfortable Cat 7 stateroom. The food quality and choice was superb.

Most Memorable Moment:

Very difficult to pick the most memorable moment. Probably the daily music performances by so many talented performers and groups. Dinner at the Palace was also very special.


Excellent! Our 8th Tauck trip

Most Memorable Moment:

The opera in Vienna
