The Burgtheater (en. Imperial Court Theatre) is the Austrian National Theatre in Vienna and one of the most important German language theatres. It was created in 1741 by Habsburg Empress Maria Theresa. In 1888 it was moved to the new present building at the Ringstraße designed by Gottfried Semper and Karl Freiherr von Hasenauer. After it was largely destroyed by bombs in 1945, the Burgtheater was restored between 1953-1955. Nowadays it is known for its traditional style and speech characteristic of performances. Tours are offered several times a day in various languages. Current director is Matthias Hartmann.
