Burgtheater, Vienna Reviews
Architecturally interesting. Go for that. Guided tour pretty much unless if you don't speak German. You get a paper handout that is 30% of what is said. You think with all the tours each day they could also have an English translated for non Germans.
In the summer this turns into a club with free entry. The music is very different every night so check the schedule online before you go. It is connected to the Impulstanz festival. Some nights the music was amazing. Drinks are more pricey here. Any dress will do.
One of the oldest institutions in Austria. A must visit for all tourists. Hosts some brilliant theatre performances and you can get some extremely affordable tickets too. They offer standing and student tickets so take advantage of it. The Vestibül can be quite cool on certain occasions. Especially around Impulstanz, a dance festival. They usually don't charge cover.
Was there one month ago for Radetzky March play. Got standing room tickets for 3.50 €/person, on their website. It went on for about 2 hours and it was totally worth it, even though we didn't understand anything as our German language skills are poor. Fantastic architecture, ornate interior design, and amazing performance. The crowd seemed very posh, the crème of Vienna, when we were there! You will be charged 1.50 € per person for holding your jackets inside. If you are in Vienna, I highly recommend it!
Burgtheatre is one of the most important German language theatres in the world and a premiere venue for theatre performances in the city of Vienna. It is also one of many impressive and historic buildings that line the famous Ringstraße, which encircles much of the historic city centre. Burgtheatre's history reaches back to 1741, when then empress Maria Theresa had a theatre build near her Palace. Known as K. K. Hoftheater nächst der Burg, the theatre was later relocated to the Ringstraße location, just across from Rathausplatz in 1888. Severly damaged during bombing raids in 1945, Burgtheatre was restored during 1953-1955, returning the building to its former glory and how you can see it today. During its illustrious history, Burgtheater has had its pick of top directors and has been the venue of many important performances, including the premieres of three of Mozart's operas as well as Beethoven's very first symphony. Today, you can watch German performances at the Burgtheatre pretty much every day of the week. Theatre schedules are made available on the first day of the month before performances are held. Tickets go on sale on the 20th of the month before performances and can be made online or by phoning the ticket offices. Note that Burgtheatre is closed during the months of July and August. See the Burgtheatre website for updated performance schedules and seat availabilities.
