It is a rather small theater building with a balcony. They demand that you print your e-mail purchased tickets. That migh be difficult for foreign visitors. I enjoyed the performance. During the break, they served wine an orange juice, but no meals.

A return to a favourite venue, this little theatre was showing 12th Night, where confusion reigns. Great fun, good acting, music and singing. And all ended well with the various couples united. You need to book and be prepared for a crush at the cloakroom...More

The eighth district is an older generation’s Vienna at
its finest: and this is what makes it popular with
locals of all ages. Josefstadt has theatre, small
independent shops, romantic passageways, neighbourhood
cafés with regular clientele, church squares, town
palaces and shady communal gardens. Trendy hangouts
have conquered distinctive places such as the Old
General Hospital (Altes AKH) and the vaults of
