Volkstheater, outside

Like the Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, the Vienna Volkstheater was built by the architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann Helmer. From the outset, the focus was on Austrian authors. Nowadays, the repertoire of the Volkstheater includes Austrian as well as German and international classics.

Party and concerts in the Red Bar

The Volkstheater houses the eye-catching, in the meantime cultic Red Bar. As a theater café its doors are open every evening - a chill-out zone after exciting theater evenings or a springboard into the Viennese nights. In addition, the Red Bar turns into a literature and theme salon on Sunday mornings, occasionally offering late-night programs and live music. Once a month a party is celebrated to DJ sounds.
