Burgtheater, also known as The National Theatre of Austria, has been a celebrated performance venue of Vienna since the mid 18th century when Austrian Empress Maria Theresa Hapsburg commissioned it. Amongst its earliest performances were premiers of Motzart's operas and Beethoven's First Symphony. The interiors for Burgtheater were executed by world-renown artists and designers like Gustav and Ernst Klimt, who painted the grand staircases. The theatre is located next to beautiful Rathauspark and the City Hall building, which makes the area perfect for a scenic stroll as well as top-notch entertainment.

- Attend special performances and ground-breaking German stage premiers at the Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz, a small yet stylish affiliate of Burgtheater.
Burgtheater is only 21 kilometres from the Vienna Airport using the A4 autobahn, but if you prefer not to drive there is plenty of ground transportation available, like taxies, S-Bahn commuter rail, airport shuttle buses and the City Airport Train. Burgtheater is accessible by several public transit lines, including tram number 1D and underground line U3, as well as buses heading to the Rathausplatz/Burgtheater and Grillparzerstrasse stations. There is a convenient taxi stand outside the theatre and an underground parking garage that costs a small fee. The theatre is also conveniently located within walking distance of several popular landmarks.
