    Arrive early to the concert to enjoy the free drinks (including beer!). And then relax at the presentation. The seats behind the orchestra provide a generous view and are cheaper than the main floor.

    One of the best concert halls in the world. There are free lunchtime concerts usually on wednesdays, but may vary. Check the website.

    The balcony might a far place to enjoy a concert here, but definitely doesn't give any less impression of the place. Very nice style!

    Nice place to get a decent, low-cost glass of wine or a beer in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. You may have to poke someone with a stick to get some attention.

    Amazing! Make sure to go to the free lunchtime concert on Wednesdays. Arrive about 11.15 for a short queue to pick up tickets (tickets are able to be collected 1 per person from 11.30).

    Probably concert hall with the best acoustic in Europe! And I love how affordable the tickets are. If you are under 30, join their Entree to purchase any tickets (from any ranks), paying only 10 euro!

    Beautiful concert space! Sat on one of the side balconies and had a great experience. There's free wine during intermission but it goes quick.

    Check out the free lunchtime concerts on Wednesdays - they're brilliant! It's first come, first served, or hang around as the concert is broadcast on screens in the foyer!
