Vienna is full of amazing landmarks, and this is one of them. Get off Volkstheater U-bahn station and you will see it next to it.

I stayed in a hotel very close to this landmark and like the majority of buildings in this wonderful city, this is another breath taker. I would suggest walking around the area at night to see the building lit up. Like many travellers, I used this station multiple times as it has access to the Rathaus, Parliament, History Museum, Museum... More

The Volkstheater is near a stop on the metro. We used this building as a landmark reference point when exiting the metro.

We haven't visited any theatre, because we did not have time, so I'm just reviewing their look. Volkstheater was our point of reference and orientation, building which served as the starting point of everything, so it has a special meaning to me. :) Beautiful, like most of the buildings in the historical centre of Vienna.

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!

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
