About André Rieu World Tour

Experience the magic of André Rieu at a festive and memorable evening and come see why the Dutch violinist is one of the most popular live acts in the world!

Watch the short video to see the premiere of the World Stadium Tour in Toronto with the biggest stage ever to go on tour; a full-size reproduction of the Empress Sisi's castle in Vienna, the Schönbrunn Palace!



“My concerts are about joy and love! We should make decisions in our lives with our hearts, not our heads. People often ask me ‘how do you choose your program?’ – the answer is: with my heart. I love Johann Strauss but I am also fascinated by Andrew Lloyd Webber or Bruce Springsteen. We should stop limiting ourselves with categories and boundaries – not just in terms of music but in our lives in general.” - André Rieu

Imagine yourself in Vienna for a Night with André Rieu & the Johann Strauss Orchestra without having to travel further than the UK.

Christmas Market

We would suggest a first visit to the German Christmas Market, situated at approximately a 15 minute walking distance from the hotel, on Victoria Square and New Street. The largest authentic German Christmas Market outside of Germany or Austria, Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market offers an endless selection of traditional wares and gifts and a tempting selection of festive food and drink. As the sweet smells of Christmas fill the air, pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, and roasted almonds will tempt your taste buds, all of which can be washed down with gluhwein, weissbeer (wheat beer), or a tasty hot chocolate.

Day 2: Day at leisure & Andre Rieu concert

Enjoy a lazy breakfast at the hotel before spending your day in buzzing Birmingham.

You might want to have another peak at the Christmas Market or simply shop in the many high-street stores featuring the most fashionable and famous brands.The Bullring Shopping Centre, with tinsel trimmed Selfridges, is not to be missed.

Andre Rieu in Concert

After a full day of Christmas merriment, get yourself ready for the amazing André Rieu. A true musical phenomenon having sold over 40 million CDs and DVDs worldwide, and performing with his 60 piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, spectators are guaranteed to a surprising, uplifting and emotional evening to remember. Seats in a ‘rank 3’ area afford ample views of all the action on stage. The concert will take place at the Birmingham Arena which is only at a 10 minute walking distance from the hotel. Your Tour Manager will guide you to and from the arena. For those with mobility issues, a taxi can be booked for you at the hotel at an additional cost.
