Beautiful Design!

This building stood out right in our face as we walked out of the metro station at the Volkstheater stop. The architecture is unique and very beautiful. Well worth a photo stop!

A great theatre right in the centre of Vienna. Nice to see the outside, even from the distance above all at night. Amazing the inside. Definetely worth to see!

A little dusty, a little tired but oh so authentic. Very few tourists; Diners were practically all locals. The brunch was superb serving a variety of both hot & cold dishes, lovely desserts and coffee. The price? brunch with a complimentary glass of prosecco 25€pp I'd definately return

This is just a lovely building. One of many. Other that being semi-attractive, we could not get inside for a tour, so the experience was somehow disappointing.

The Volkstheater has beautiful architecture. It was finished in 1889 and the architects were F. Fellner and H. Helmer. The style of the building is Baroque.

This was a very elegant, old theatre. We saw a wonderful opera there. They have a variety of operas and other programs running constantly.

Reasonably priced and whilst the standard of the performances varied, the overall concert was lovely. The orchestra was particularly good as was the male choir, the ballet and the children's choir. I thought some of the soloists' voices were unimpressive and were often not strong enough to compete with the orchestra. There is a very nice little bar which sells... More

It was a great Opera house .Together with the friends we had chance to see "La Travviata" of Verdi .The show and the teather atmosphere was excellent. Not only State Opera House but The Voklsteather is also perfect for the operas you if have time at Vienna . Don't forget to get the tickets earlier then venue. :)
