We were continually hounded by street sellers to buy tickets to a classical concert at all the major tourist attractions of Vienna. We finally found a seller who had standing room tickets for 5 euro each to see the Vienna Classical orchestra at the National Museum. A normal ticket cost 40 or so euro.
When we arrived we found that our seats were marble steps directly next to the people who paid 8 times as much as us for their tickets. We even had a better view due to the height of our steps.
Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and recommend to buy the cheap tickets. The music was great, the performers were entertaining, and the price was a real steal. This was the best buy of our 6 week trip through europe.

Address: Sights of Mozart,Beethoven,Strauss...
Directions: national museum in the museum quarter. get your tickets from the street sellers in the streets near the major attractions.
