Travel Tip: Experience Europe’s Summer Classical Music Concerts
Travel Tip: Headed to Europe? Consider building your trip around one of the fabulous European Summer Classical Music Concerts
As I write this article, I am listening to the 2018 Sommernachtskonzert that was just held in Vienna, Austria at the Schönbrunn Palace in the Palace Gardens on May 31st, 2018.
If you are subscribed to Apple Music, go check out the recently released album (click here). It’s full of classical music fan favorites.
We are often asked about the best time to visit various places and we’ll have a conversation about weather, crowds and such. But perhaps another exciting consideration to put into the timing puzzle are some of the amazing other experiences you might be able to build into your journey.
The Europeans love to hold fabulous outdoor concerts, there exist fabulous summer festivals, and of course, there is always Octoberfest if you want to drink some good beer with the Germans.
So, how does one learn about these possibilities?
Answer: go to Google and type your destination’s name plus the word tourism. I did that for Austria, for example, and found all of these upcoming music festivals in Austria (click here).
A word of caution: make certain that you find the “official” tourism website for your desired destination. Otherwise, it’s buyer beware as sneaky web dudes do all kinds of things to make themselves look official.
So, want to enjoy next year’s Sommernachtskonzert in Vienna along with a river cruise on the Danube? Well, next year the date is June 20th, click here for the details.
When you’re on an ocean or river cruise anywhere in the world, and you’re spending a night in port, do a little Google search to see if there might be something fun to do off of the ship.
And, if you’re one of those last-minute type people, just ask the ship’s concierge or cruise director for the options in port while you’re on the ship.
