cultural scene


There are many historic and cultural venues and cabarets in the area around Skodagasse 15 that whet your appetite for the arts.Theater in der Josefstadt – with more than 350,000 visitors per season – is Vienna’s oldest theatre. The place where Johann Nestroy and Ferdinand Raimund made their debuts, the cast today thrills audiences with a successful mix of traditional pieces and premieres by contemporary authors. Vienna’s English Theatre, which was established in 1963, stands out today as Europe’s oldest foreign-language theatre. World premieres with nationally and internationally famous actors attract visitors to Josefsgasse to experience this cultural gem. The neighbouring square in front of Vienna’s City Hall is used practically year round as a popular venue for events – from the famous Christmas Market including an ice- skating rink in winter to the international film festival in summer with culinary treats from around the world.

The baroque Schönborn garden palace in Laudongasse is a real gem, which today houses the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art. The romantic gardens of the adjacent Schönborn park with its fountains, thick hedges, and impressive trees is today one of the most beautiful and idyllic places in the 8th district.
