This is one of the premier theaters in the world, and is considered the top performance hall in German-speaking countries. Though the current building was constructed in 1888, much of it is very new, having been destroyed during the second World War. The ceiling is lined with frescoes, and a statue of Apollo stands guard over the main entrance on the Ringstraße. The interior is the height of opulence, decorated in rich red, cream, and gold with marble floors and paintings of great actors on the walls. Tours are offered several times a day in various languages.
