Raymond Theater has been completely renovated
The famous venue for musicals has been completely renovated. During work on the facade and surface renovation, the theater’s original lettering was rediscovered. The house, founded in 1893 by an association of 500 citizens of Mariahilf, is known locally and internationally for its high-quality production.
During the renovations, the seats were also completely renovated. This means that dynamic room designs will be possible in the future. A central visitor toilet has been installed in the basement of the Raymond Theatre
