he Burgtheater (en: (Imperial) Court Theatre), originally known as K.K. Theater an der Burg, then until 1918 as the K.K. Hofburgtheater, is the Austrian National Theatre in Vienna and one of the most important German language theatres in the world. [1] The Burgtheater was created in 1741 and has become known as "die Burg" by the Viennese population;[1] its theatre company of more or less regular members has created a traditional style and speech typical of Burgtheater performances.The theatre opened on 14 March 1741, the creation of the Habsburg Empress Maria Theresa of Austria who wanted a theatre next to her palace. Her son, Emperor Joseph II, called it the "German National Theatre" in 1776. Three Mozart operas premiered there: Die Entführung aus dem Serail (1782), Le nozze di Figaro (1786) and Così fan tutte (1790). Beginning in 1794, the theatre was called the "K.K. Hoftheater nächst der Burg". Beethoven's 1st Symphony premiered there on 2 April 1800. The theatre was moved to a new building at the Ringstraße on 14 October 1888 designed by Gottfried Semper and Karl Freiherr von Hasenauer. In 1943, under Nazi rule, a notoriously extreme production of The Merchant of Venice was staged at the Burgtheater - with Werner Krauss as Shylock, one of several theatre and film roles by this actor pandering to antisemitic stereotypes. On March 12, 1945 the Burgtheater was largely destroyed in a bombing raid, and, one month later, on April 12, 1945, it was further damaged by a fire of unknown origin.[1] After the war, the theatre was restored between 1953 and 1955.[1] The classic Burgtheater style and the Burgtheater-German language were trend-setting for German language theatres.

The Theater an der Wien is a historic theatre in Vienna located on the Left Wienzeile in the Mariahilf district. Completed in 1801, the theatre has hosted the premieres of many celebrated works of theatre, opera, and symphonic music. Since 2006, it has served primarily as an opera house, hosting its own company. Although "Wien" is German for "Vienna", the "Wien" in the name of the theatre is actually the name of the Wien River, which once flowed by the theatre site; "an der Wien" means "on the banks of the Wien". In modern times, the river has been covered over in this location and the covered riverbed now houses the Naschmarkt, an open-air market. The theatre is operated in cooperation with Vereinigte Bühnen Wien (VBW) which also operates the Raimund Theater and the Ronacher https://www.theater-wien.at/en/theatres/theatres

The Naschmarkt is Vienna's most popular market. Located at the Wienzeile over the Wien River, it is about 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) long. The Naschmarkt around 1900 The Naschmarkt has existed since the 16th century when mainly milk bottles were sold (as milk bottles were made out of ash (wood from an ash tree), "Asch" (German for "ash") led to the name "Aschenmarkt"). From 1793 onwards, all fruits and vegetables brought to Vienna with carts had to be sold there, while goods arriving on the Danube were sold elsewhere. Nowadays, one can buy fresh fruit and vegetables from around the world, exotic herbs, cheese, baked goods such as bread, kaiser rolls, and torte, meats, and seafood. There are also many small restaurants which offer e.g. sushi, kebab, seafood, traditional Viennese food such as Kaiserschmarrn or Palatschinken (compares to rolled up crepes) and stalls which offer clothes and accessories. Since 1977, the market extends further along the Wienzeile to an adjacent area every Saturday, when a flea market takes place there. The atmosphere of the Naschmarkt is famous far beyond the borders of Vienna, and large numbers of tourists visit the market every year.

The Austrian Parliament Building (German: Parlamentsgebäude, colloquially das Parlament) in Vienna is where the two houses of the Austrian Parliament conduct their sessions. The building is located on the Ringstraße boulevard in the first district Innere Stadt, near Hofburg Palace and the Palace of Justice. It was built to house the two chambers of the Imperial Council (Reichsrat), the bicameral legislature of the Cisleithanian (Austrian) part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Up to today, the Parliament Building is the seat of the two houses—the National Council (Nationalrat) and the Federal Council (Bundesrat)—of the Austrian legislature. The foundation stone was laid in 1874; the building was completed in 1883. The architect responsible for its Greek Revival style was Theophil Hansen. He designed the building holistically, each element harmonizing with the others and was therefore also responsible for the interior decoration, such as statues, paintings, furniture, chandeliers, and numerous other elements. Hansen was honored by Emperor Franz Joseph with the title of Freiherr (Baron) after its completion. Following heavy damage and destruction in World War II, most of the interior has been restored to its original splendour.

Vienna City Hall Friedrich von Schmidt, who had been the architect of the Cathedral of Cologne, designed and built Vienna's City Hall, the most important secular building in the neo-Gothic style in the city, between 1872 and 1883. The height of the tower is 97.9 m, plus the so-called "Iron Rathausmann", who measures 3.4 m (6 m including the standard) and has become a symbol of Vienna. Shoe size: 63. Vienna City Hall is the official seat of the Mayor and the meeting place of the city senate/provincial government and the Municipal Council/Landtag. City Hall was built between 1872 and 1883 and is a building of superlatives: Around 30 million bricks and more than 40,000 cubic meters of natural stone were used. The Arkadenhof of City Hall is one of the biggest inner courtyards in Europe with an area of 2,804 m². The Festival Hall is 71 meters long, 20 meters wide and 18.5 meters high. If the fire authorities were to allow it, 1,500 couples could dance the waltz here at the same time. Numerous events are held inside and in front of City Hall. One of the most important and best known is without doubt the Life Ball, which is held every year in May. Numerous other balls are also organized in this wonderful building each year. Starting in November, the Advent Market in front of City Hall creates the right atmosphere in the run-up to Christmas. And from January to March, City Hall Square and City Hall Park transform into the most beautiful skating rink in the world. City Hall is also home to the Vienna City and Regional Library (with its extensive collection of Viennensia) and the Vienna City and Regional Archive. Tours are held for individuals on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1.00 pm. No registration required. No guided tours are offered on session days, gazetted public holidays, Good Friday, 24 and 31 December as well as during major events. Free audio guides are available in English, French, Italian and Spanish when a valid form of ID is left as security.

Together with the zoological garden the Schönbrunn Palace with the bordering park area belongs very likely to the most popular touristic targets in Vienna. In any case it is one of the most visited sights in Austria. The origin of the history of Schönbrunn lies in a hunting lodge from the 17th century. The plans to build a counterpart to Versailles were never carried out. But they constructed the biggest palace from Austria, which served as an imperial summer residence in Vienna. The present appearance is mainly influenced through the building activities organized by Empress Maria Theresa in the 18th century. Along with this, several of the well known attractions of the spacious palace gardens came into being. That includes, among others, the Gloriette, the Neptune Fountain, the Roman Ruin and the Obelisk Fountain. In this free city-walks Top 10 listing you will find brief info and tips to the different attractions for young and elderly. Depending on your interest, you should calculate up to a whole day for your visit of the palace and the gardens. For the visit of the zoo you should reserve additionally at least half a day.

Hofburg Vienna Heldenplatz Accessibility: Metro U3 station Herrengasse Opening hours: The outside facilities of the Hofburg buildings and the Heldenplatz in Vienna are normally always accessible. The premises of the museums are open from 9:00 to 17:30 o'clock and in July and August until 18:00 o'clock. Tip: You can visit the Silberkammer, the Sisi museum and the Imperial Apartments with one ticket for approx. 12,90 Euro. Hofburg Vienna Heldenplatz View from Heldenplatz to Hofburg Hofburg Vienna Map Vienna Tourist Map with Hofburg The Hofburg Vienna (B2) is an impressive building at the Heldenplatz with long history. It is located at Vienna's splendor boulevard, the Ringstrasse, and is reachable from there through the Burgtor gate. History: The name of the Heldenplatz Vienna is based on the two magnificent horseman monuments which were created by Anton Dominik Fernkorn. In 1860 the horseman statue of Erzherzog Karl was finished and in 1865 the one which shows Prince Eugen von Savoyen was revealed. The specific characteristic of the Erzherzog-Karl monument is the horse which is jumping up and touches the base only with the hind legs at the base. From the 13th century until 1918 the Hofburg was the main residence (with a few interruptions) for the Habsburger and therefore also the residence for the emperor family in Vienna. Since 1945 the office of the Austrian Federal President is accommodated there and also the Austrian National Library, museums, the chapel Hofburgkapelle and the church Augustinerkirche.

The free accessible Volksgarten Vienna (B2/B3) is a beautiful park and it is located directly beside the Heldenplatz and the Hofburg buildings. It's a perfect place for pedestrians who need a rest. The tired legs can be relaxed by sitting at one of the benches, while the eyes can enjoy the blossoming rose garden and the ears can listen to the rippling fountains away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The romantic scenery is well liked by the tourists and is also often used from wedding photographers. So you have a good chance to meet a wedding couple at your walk through the Volksgarten.The Stadtpark Vienna (D1/D2/E1/E2) with the size of approx. 65.000 m² is since the year 1862 the biggest park area in the center of the city and it is equally well liked by the tourists and the Viennese citizens. Especially guests of the hotels at the Parkring can enjoy the nice view and are only a few meters away from a relaxing walk through this green area.Park Design: The recreation space which was designed in an English landscape style is located between the Parkring in the 1st district and the Heumarkt in the 3rd district. The river Wienfluss splits the Stadtpark in two parts and bridge constructions like the iron Karolinenbrücke connect those both parts. Worth mentioning is also the info about the planning of this park area. The landscape painter Joseph Sellény provided the template and the city gardener Rudolph Siebeck made the planting accordingly. Visitor Info: Winded paths with numerous benches lead through this city park in Vienna passing by several pools and fountain installations.

Burggarten • Sightseeing • 1 Josefsplatz, Wien, Wien, 1010 Burggarten Vienna Garden & Palm House Accessibility: Metro U2 station Museumsquartier Opening hours: The garden is usually open from the month of April to October from 6:00 to 22:00 o'clock and from the month of November to March from 6:30 to 19:00 o'clock. Entrances are available from the Ringstrasse, from the Hofburg and from the direction of the opera Tip: Enjoy your coffee and other delicacies on the terrace or directly in the palm house in a special atmosphere. The Burggarten Vienna Garden (B1/B2/C2) was laid out in the year 1818 as a private garden of the emperor on an area of approx. 38.000 m². It is located directly at the Ringstrasse beside the Hofburg and the Albertina. History: Just like the Volksgarten the responsible planners of this park were Ludwig Gabriel von Remy and the court gardener Franz Antoine the older. The specialty about this design was the participation of emperor Franz who was an educated gardener and selected new types of plants from all over the world. Over the years the layout was adapted to the style of an English landscape garden and a pond was added. History: It took some time until it was opened to the public in the year 1919 together with its monuments (e.g. marble statue from Mozart and bronze statue from emperor Franz Joseph) and the Palmenhaus (palm house). Before that the Viennese citizens had only the possibility to look at this park through a mighty but beautiful styled fence. The fence of the Burggarten and also that one of the Volksgarten were detailed renovated with a similar gold platen and color as used originally in 1863. This monumental appearing iron grate looks very impressive with its generous decorations and the royal look. In the year 1901 they started with the construction of the 2.000 m² sized palm house (Palmenhaus). Friedrich Ohman designed this building which consists of glass and steel and supervised also the 5 years lasting building time of the last big orangery of the Habsburger. The emperor used his private green house for relaxing and brought with it the nature into the center of Vienna.

The origin of this street dates back to the old Romans and it is surrounded by popular alleys, streets and places which stand for the typical flair, elegant tradition and gourmet pleasures: Stephansplatz, Kohlmarkt, Naglergasse, Tuchlauben and Petersplatz. Visitor Info: Most of the buildings in this pedestrian area origin from the 17th and 18th century and you can find here finest traditional shops. Some of these shops have a long tradition and were already popular in the times when Austria was ruled by emperors. These are for example the porcelain factory Augarten, the court jeweler Heldwein and also the court perfumery Nägele & Strubell. In the rooms of the former court menswear store Braun you can find today a shop of H&M. The historical noble interior remained in the shop. There are also plenty of coffee houses and restaurants between all those shops. Especially in the surrounding alleys you can discover a lot of them. In the alley Dorotheergasse is the coffee house Hawelka which is open since 1939 and a well known place where you can meet some times popular artists in a really old fashioned atmosphere. If you are a gourmet you should visit the shop of Julius Meinl at the end of the Graben (corner Naglergasse). The gourmet supermarket offers exquisite Austrian and international groceries. There you can enjoy shopping and you are able to find a lot of different eatable souvenirs from Vienna. Julius Meinl got famous because of the excellent coffee, which you can drink in the included coffee house with the nice view on the splendid boulevard. There is also a well sorted wine cellar with a wine bar in the basement. History: Already at the time of the Austrian monarchy the Graben Vienna was known as an exclusive shopping street due to the near location to the Hofburg. Since the 1970ies it is used as a pedestrian zone. At a walk you have a much better view at the different wonderful buildings like the palace Equitable, the landmarked Grabenhof and also at the fountains Josefs- and Leopoldsbrunnen. For one of the fountains there are already recordings from the year 1455. At that time the water from the Hofburg garden was led to the Graben. The use of the fountain was for the reason of fire fighting, because house fires were not seldom due to the usually construction material of wood. The first plague column was built in the year 1679 at the peak of the pest and was made of wood. Only after the plague and the Turkish siege the long planned and often rescheduled new construction of the plague column out of marble was finished in the year 1694.
