The concert hall Großer Ehrbar Saal was built in 1867 by the piano manufacturer Friedrich Ehrbar in place of an old concert hall that had grown too small. Its architect Julius Schrittwieser took his inspiration for the design of the hall from the style of the Italian High Renaissance. The venue, which is located in the heart of Vienna, became one of the most important places for music recitals in the city soon after its establishment.

The concert hall belonged to the manufacturer Ehrbar and played an important role in the Viennese concert life around the turn of the century. After being damaged in World war II, the hall was reconstructed to its old historic appearance and opened for the public in 1946 with a festive gala concert with the Vienna Philharmonic. 

Among others, Johannes Brahms, Anton Bruckner, Max Reger, Gustav Mahler were artists that have performed repeatedly in the hall.

The Wiener Konzerthaus is one of the largest and most artistically progressive institutions in international musical life. Opened in 1913, the concert institution has always tried to emphasize both tradition and innovative musical styles.

The original Art Nouveau building was partly destroyed during renovations and adaptions, but the building was reconstructed from original sketches in the 1970s.

In order to give the different currents in contemporary music a better forum, a new hall was created in the basement of the building. 

At the start of the 2009/2010 season, the New Hall was renamed Berio Hall, after Luciano Berio.
