Streetside view approaching Burgtheater

The Burgtheater hasn't lost its touch over the years – this is one of the foremost theatres in the German-speaking world, staging some 800 performances a year, from Shakespeare to modern works. The theatre also runs the 500-seater Akademietheater, which was built between 1911 and 1913.

Tickets at the Burgtheater and Akademietheater are sold for a 25% discount an hour before performances. Advance bookings are recommended, although, depending on the performance, some last-minute tickets may be available.
