Burgtheater, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review

  • The building is nice looking. The historic aircondition does not perform good enough. An investment would be a good decision.

  • Perhaps, this is the reason why Beethoven chose to stay in the apartment nearby. His stage is right here inside the Burgtheater, one of the oldest theatre in all of Europe, and very much storied from many performances from the masters of the era. The Burgtheater was the most important German language theatre in the world and held its prestige because of Empress Maria Theresa who asked for a theatre next to the palace. The theatre, together with many cultural buildings in Vienna that has made the Austrian capital such synonymous with high cultural and art. I’ve been pondering while I was here in Vienna on the importance of performing arts such as the one held inside the Burgtheater. Once upon a time, the populous would come here much like how we today go to the cinemas. But there’s something special about a cast on a stage telling you a story. The orchestra in the stands moving you with its symphony. The audience next to you sharing a moment of laughter and heart ache, suspense and tragedy, inspiration and motivation. Nothing moves so deeply like words and music on a stage. It’s art in motion.

  • Was there at the open day and saw the technical stage show. Was quite impressive. Their equipment and the possibilities they can achieve with it are really high end. Visited theaters in the past as well. Was just a bit sad to see that barely used these possibilities back then.

  • loved the architecture. nice place to visit when in Vienna even when you stay just a couple of hours :)

  • Great plays there.
