Theatre in The Museum District & Neubau

With a seating capacity close to 1000, the Volkstheater is one of Vienna’s largest theatres. Built in 1889, the interior is suitably grand. While most performances are translations (anything from Woody Allen to Ingmar Bergman to Molière), only German-language shows are staged. Students can buy unsold tickets for €5 one hour before performances start. Advance bookings are necessary.
