It is one of the most famous theatres in the world and I suppose the most important German stage in Europe.

Burgtheater was projected by two architects, Karl von Hasenauer and Gottfried Semper.
Decorations was projected by famous artists and also by Gustav and Ernst Klimt and Franz Matsch.

The emperor's theatre started in year 1741 in a hall in Hofburg but the place was changed and the theatre found its new place in the building you can find it nowadays.

At the auditorium there could be more to 1000 spectators.
