Viennese Music Association

The Wiener Musikverein (Viennese Music Association) commonly shortened to Musikverein, is a concert hall in the Inner City of Vienna. It is the home to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

This building is located on Dumbastraße/Bösendorferstraße behind the Hotel Imperial near the Ringstraße boulevard. The Großer Musikvereinssaal, or Goldener Saal (Golden Hall), is about 49 m (161 ft) long, 19 m (62 ft) wide, and 18 m (59 ft) high. It has 1,744 seats and standing room for 300. It is the venue for the annual Vienna New Year’s Concert. Its lively acoustics are primarily based on Hansen’s intuition as he could not rely on any studies on architectural acoustics.
