A surprise effect that packs a punch: the buoyant idyll of the “Military Symphony” is disrupted by march music. With cymbals, a triangle, a large drum and trumpet calls, the military music rumbles through the symphony bar by bar. Janissary music was extremely popular in the Austria of Haydn’s time, but only Haydn himself could use it this ingeniously and skilfully.

Just like Haydn, Anton Bruckner came from the traditional world of choirboys and it almost seems as if Bruckner’s opening of the 5th symphony was inspired by Haydn’s slow introductions. Despite its considerable length and musical complexity, the symphony in B flat major never fails to mesmerise listeners.

One concert – two unique personalities. The lack of role models, traditions and well-trodden paths allows something new to emerge. “I was cut off from the world. There was nobody near me to drive me crazy or torment me, so I had to be original.” (Joseph Haydn)

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.


It goes without saying that the Historische Stadthalle is equipped to provide access for disabled people.

Wheelchair ramps and lifts (with announcement) will provide you with easy access to all rooms.

Parking spaces for disabled people are available both in the multi-storey car park and in the Südstrasse car park.

Toilets for disabled people can be found on the ground floor (to the right of the main entrance) at the eastern end of the foyer. They are clearly signposted.
