Floating Concerts - Der Schwimmende Konzertsaal

The floating Concert

The setting sun sheds a golden light over the water, the huge old trees whisper in the evening breeze. And under the sounds of a Haydn-Serenade or a Strauss-Walzer, our floating concert stage leaves port… Classical Music, the unspoiled nature of the Old Danube and culinary art merge into a unique experience which you will never forget!

The Evening’s Program

Our floating Concert Hall starts at 8pm – in August at 7:30pm, access to the islands half an hour earlier. The hors d’oevre of our Gourmet-menu is served on the islands before we make sail, accompanied by the performance of our music ensemble. We return to the landing-stage to pick up the second course and then we’ll head towards the “Wagram Bridge”.

On the way we are passing a narrow channel. At this point, it’s necessary to separate the islands. This gives you the chance to be captain yourself and to steer “your” island per joystick. We will stay under the Wagram Bridge with its excellent acoustics for a while enjoying our ensemble’s performance, before we go ashore for a little break. Meanwhile, night has fallen. The second part of our musical island-journey leads us back to our home port, passing through silent, moonlit nature… Arrival at Arcotel: around 10:15pm.

 


In Case of Bad Weather…

In case of rain or stormy weather the dinner and concert will take place in the winter garden of Arcotel Kaiserwasser. If weather permits, you can take our boats out at a later time that evening.
