This is not really something I would normally go to and kind of booked ticket because was not sure what else to do in Salzburg that night however it was one of the best experiences I have ever been to. I watched the magic flute Mozart show and wow! E.. Read more »

Brilliant show. Amazing puppeteering. Very entertaining. Lovely old theatre but good seats and spacious auditorium. A bar too.

Visited on a Sunday to see a performance of Der Alte Baum (The Old Tree). This beautifully performed show played to a full house with live music from the orchestra and incredibly talented opera singers. Highly recommended.

Don't miss to see a performance of this unique marionet playing. You will not regret it! Splendid handcraft, skilful puppeteers, magnificent marionets. Also the theatre itself is beautiful.

Absolute waste of money (30€ per person), especially for those who can't understand German. The English explanations that they provide along with the show are not subtitles but mere guide to tell you what's happening. It ruins the exp.. Read more »

Kind of pricey for a short performance. Taking into consideration that it's an art form that needs a different set of skills, I think it might be worth a visit. The stories are told in German with subtitles shown on the walls.

Beautiful architecture. The show I saw here was amazing and so well performed. I don’t speak German, and that’s the language the show was performed in, but I was mesmerized and captivated the entire time. Once in a lifetime experience for.. Read more »

A wonderful unique experience that you won't be able to find anywhere else in the world. These artists are incredibly talented and are able to bring the puppets to life! The best part is that their work can be translated to any language and brin.. Read more »

We came here to watch the puppet version of the Sound of Music. My expectations were for something tacky & touristy but these were surpassed by a production which was professional and artful in a suitable setting. Children are catered for with b.. Read more »

Great poppy show! Must watch! There are one hour show and two hours show in different days. And the show on each day is different too. So make sure to check the show name, duration and time in advance.
