Things to do in Vienna June 2023. What should I do in Vienna in June 2022? And which events in Vienna should I visit?
In fact, the month’s nine highlights in Wien focus on classical music and food festivals, wine tours to a lavish ballet gala, summer solstice at the Danube valley of Wachau, and a pop festival. If you love Beethoven, Mozart and operas, check my classical music tips in Vienna concerts.
1. Join Post-Museum Fun At MQ Amore
Things to do in Vienna June 2023. From June onwards is probably the best time to enjoy the Museumsquartier’s outdoor programme. On warm summer afternoons and evenings you can try out your minigolf skills at the outdoor installation ‘MQ Amore’. Between pebble and lawn beds golf balls zing past contemporary art objects from various artists. If you feel like at the Italian Riviera in the 1950s that is intentional.
Date: Monday to Friday, 12noon to 10pm; weekends and public holidays 10am to 10pm
Admission: most public events are expected to be free;
2. Back To The Opera
Things to do in Vienna June 2023. Almost 100 years after the Habsburg Emperors beat the Ottomans in the Battle of Vienna, Wolfgang Mozart staged his Ottoman centered opera The Abduction from the Seraglio in 1782. And during five days in June the Vienna Volksoper will stage this audience favourite once again. At the Vienna State Opera, the Marriage of Figaro (Mozart) and Italian operas dominate alongside Richard Wagner’s bombastic Ring cycle.
Date: 1st to 30th June 2023
Location: Wiener Staatsoper and Wiener Volksoper
Tickets: for performances at Volksoper and at Vienna State Opera
3. Take A Bike Tour Or Segway Tour
Things to do in Vienna June 2023. I keep saying it but exploring Vienna by bike is so great. You can easily explore most of Vienna’s landmarks by bike. The two best Vienna tours by bike cover classical Vienna (morning tour) and the area around the Danube Island including sights of the Vienna Ringstrasse boulevard. They are great for orientating yourself. Besides, you will stop frequently to hear stories of landmarks you pass.
An e-bike tour can take you much further. Last year, I joined an e-bike group up Vienna’s rolling hills and vineyards. Read the full story about my electric Vienna bicycle tour.
I have also done two segway tours in Vienna and loved them both. The first was a classical sightseeing tour along the Ringstrasse boulevard and across the historic city centre.
The second was a fun tour through the lush woodlands close to the Vienna Prater amusement park. Read my tour reviews in Vienna tours by segway.
4. Summer Night Concert
Things to do in Vienna June 2023. After a two-year break due to Covid 19, the concert organizers and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra are back with their annual free open air concert. In the gardens of Schonbrunn Palace this massively popular event stages key musicians and conductors each year. For the upcoming performance under the theme LOVE, conductor Valery Gergiev and German operatic tenor Jonaus Kaufman will bring sweet opera, operetta, concert and ballet tunes from Jules Massenet to Emmerich Kálmán and Giacomo Puccini to life (tbc).
For further information visit Summer Night Concert. For more festival inspiration check my Vienna Music Festival guide.
Date: 8th June 2023; 8.45 pm
Location: Schönbrunn Palace, Schönbrunner Schlossstrasse 147, 1130 Vienna;
5. Quintessence Organ Festival 2023
Things to do in Vienna June 2022. If you think Mozart music is old go back another 100+ years and listen to the sounds of baroque music. Between June and October, the Quintessence Organ Festival will help dust off 381-year old sound miracle – the Wöckherl organ – during a series of top music events. What is more, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience the charms of Franciscan Church in the center of Vienna.
Location: Franziskanerplatz, 1010 Vienna;
6. Head Out For A Burgenland Wine Tour
Things to do in Vienna June 2023. While French Burgundy has long conquered the world stage for its wine Austrian Burgenland is catching up fast. Sharing the same geographical latitude, Burgenland vintners grow some of the best reds, whites, and roses in Austria. If you look for wine tasting in an authentic setting off the beaten tourist track, consider visiting Christof and Louise.
At barely an hour’s drive from Vienna, you will head for rolling vineyards, a vast steppe lake, and a fun tour through the couple’s wine rooms. Find out more in Burgenland Wine Tour.
