I love The Third Man, such a great film, but hubby had never seen it. When I heard that it is shown regularly at the Burg Kino, it was essential to go and see it there. This is a quirky little cinema and the evening we attended the film was shown in the Grosser Saal, a very large and interesting... More

The Burg Kino is an art house cinema on the Oparing near the Opera House, with everything below ground and down some steps. They show The Third Man in a small studio cinema with very soft and deep seats on a fixed schedule however the film is not shown everyday so always check ahead to see when it is next... More

Ahh The Third Man, on the big screen. Pretty hard to mess that up. I don't think it was a 35mm presentation, quality was too good, though the lip sync got messed up a little for one reel. A 5 star delight, great quality, cool cinema, loads of ambience. Thoroughly recommend it if you enjoy the film and desire a... More

I couldn't remember if I had seen the film The Third Man when I was much younger, so one evening decided to go to the Burgkino to see it. It is a lovely old cinema well suited to this classic film. It was exciting seeing some of the places on the screen that I had visited in Vienna. A whole... More

It's a neighborhood place for the University of Vienna students and people on dates. The seats are soft (and old) and the screen is vaguely large but not as large as the newest mall theater. However, it's so conveniently located right on the Ringstrasse so to get home you just hop the tram #1, 2, D, or 71 (Burg stop).... More

You just have to go and see the Third Man whilst in Vienna. This B/W classic shown on an old 4:3 screen in an auditorium where you sink into the seats is an amazing piece of art. Brilliantly shot, acted and directed you can play spot the landmark among the wreckage of the bombed Vienna. You'll marvel at how sympathetically... More

My husband and I went to Burg Kino specifically to see the classic movie “The Third Man”. The theater is a bit seedy, but that added to the ambience of seeing the movie. “The Third Man” has a cult following and has been named one of the greatest films of all time by the British film institute. It is set... More

Nice little cinema. Went to see "The Third Man" in the original version. The big theater really looks like a theater (including balcony). The seats are comfortable, the service is good (fresh popcorn, cold drinks, nice staff). All in all I can recommend it if you want to have a different cinema experience.

One rainy afternoon in Vienna, we went to see 'The Third Man' movie in English at the Burg Kino theater. This is a cult classic movie, shot in Vienna, starring Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. A whole industry has emerged in Vienna about the movie, including tours, a museum, and the iconic Ferris Wheel in Prater amusement park. While we... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
