Burgtheater is one of the oldest stages in the german-speaking world, but the building that you see today dates back to the year 1888 and was built by Gottfried Semper and Karl von Hasenauer.
Even when you are not interested in attending a theatre-performance there it makes sense to walk around the building and see some of the great architectonical sights - some of them are shown on my pictures : The lamps at the entrance are made by sculptured eagles, all of the facades are decorated with great stucco-works showing famous actors, poets or characters of famous plays...
Take a look also at my last picture, it is the base of a street-lamp in front of Burgtheater.
