Catch the sound in Vienna's sound museum: Haus der Musik

HAUS DER MUSIK is an interactive discovery museum located in the heart of Vienna's first district nestled between St. Stephen's Cathedral and the Vienna State Opera. A host of interactive installations playfully communicate openness to new things, understanding and enthusiasm in approaching music HAUS DER MUSIK was awarded the Austrian Museum Prize for its innovative design and is located in the former Palais of Archduke Charles. You will find all 67 of its new inventions here. A total of 5,000 square meters has been set aside exclusively for areas dedicated to a wide array of approaches to music, and most of all, to the experience of music.
At one time the former Palais of Archduke Charles, today's HAUS DER MUSIK was also the residence of Otto Nicolai (1810 - 1849), who composed the opera "The Merry Wives of Windsor" and founded the Vienna Philharmonic concerts here. This connection provided the impetus for the Vienna Philharmonic, with its Historical Archive, to make HAUS DER MUSIK its new home. Here, the scientific documentation of this world-famous orchestra continues and is made available to the public. On the "Beletage" first floor, the only historically preserved rooms in the house, the Vienna Philharmonic present original documents from their history.
Ever since it opened its doors to visitors on June 15, 2000, HAUS DER MUSIK has been open to the public 365 days a year, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Visitors are often amazed at just what surprises Vienna, the citadel of music with centuries of tradition, holds in store and how HAUS DER MUSIK bridges the gap between Vienna's rich musical heritage and its bright musical future.
Huth at Haus der Musik
On June 7, our new restaurant "Huth at Haus der Musik" opens its doors on the Sound Museum's rooftop. Gabi and Robert Huth's new inner-city restaurant entices with diverse Austrian cuisine, modern ambiance and a unique dining experience high above the rooftops of Vienna. Gabi and Robert Huth already run a small gourmet empire at the heart of the city. Their three restaurants have one thing in common: top quality dining: "da moritz", their Italian place serves fantastic pizza and "Bistecca Fiorentina," the "Huth Beisl" combines beer culture with culinary pleasures and last but not least the "Stammhaus," otherwise known as the "Huth - Gastwirtschaft." At the beginning of June, a fourth location will be added. Named "Huth im Haus der Musik," it is located at the top floor of the Sound Museum and offers a unique view over the rooftops of Vienna's inner city. The Café inside the glass-roofed inner courtyard has been open since May and offers a breakfast menu from 8am onwards. In the coming weeks it will be extended by a summery terrace outside the museum.
