Staatstheater am Gartnerplatz Reviews
Beautiful Theater, with great productions! Always worth a visit! Do try to come dressed nicely. Let's stop the jeans and saggy t-shirts at the theater! Make it an event and take the opportunity to be fancy !
Very nice facilities, comfortable seats inside of the theather and excellent acoustics. Plenty of staff available to help the visitors. The bar is too small and gets too crowded during the breaks
