The majestic Hotel Imperial and its sumptuous surroundings were originally created in 1863 as the Prince of Württemberg’s Viennese residence.

The elegant Palais Daun-Kinsky located on Vienna’s Freyung is one of the city’s most impressive historical buildings. Built between 1713 and 1716 for Philipp Laurenz Graf von und zu Daun the Palais is a pièce de résistance of baroque architecture. At the end of the 18th Century marriage placed the building in the hands of the royal Kinsky family who presided over this architectural gem for over 200 years.
All artists involved in the construction and decoration of the structure were renowned celebrities of their metier at the time. The constructer Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt, for instance, was the star architect of his time. Alberto Camesina was responsible for the ornate decorative plasterwork. The breath-taking ceiling fresco above the stairway was designed by Carlo Innocenzo Carlone. Together with Marcantonio Chiarini he also created the magnificent ceiling panel in the Ovaler Festsaal. The Palais Daun-Kinsky stands out for its multi-faceted room design as well as its grand ceiling stuccoes, its breath-taking quadrature paintings and its numerous sculptures.
In the 1860s, the Austrian Trade Association (since 1839) decided to have its own association building erected according to the plans of architect Otto Thienemann in the style of Palladian classicism. In 1872, Emperor Franz Josef I ceremoniously opened the palace, which is located near the magnificent Ringstrasse. Michael Matscheko, Wilhelm Exner, Franz Wertheim and many others shaped the history of the building. Many groundbreaking ideas, such as the Vienna Urania, the TGM or the Vienna World Exhibition, were conceived and realized here.
The Beletage of the house was not only used for meetings, festivities and balls, but was also the place for presentations of technical innovations. In 1868, for example, the first public test flight of Wilhelm Kress' flying model took place in the ballroom. Today, after extensive revitalization (1988-1991) and renovation (2004), the Beletage is the ideal setting for social events of all kinds. Receptions, conferences, meetings, balls and also clubbings take place in our classic ambience.
Located in the heart of one of Vienna’s oldest and most beautiful areas, the first district, you will find the famous Palais Ferstel. The young architect Heinrich von Ferstel created this Palais between 1856 and 1860 while he was captivated by the impressions of a long visit to Italy. The unique combination of Venetian-Florentine Trecento architecture with classic ashlar masonry has rendered this building one of Vienna’s grandest and most interesting examples of Wilhelminian-style architecture. At the time of its opening in 1860, the Palais Ferstel was the newest design in Vienna. The stylish rooms and the glass-covered yard not only briefly housed the Vienna Stock Exchange and the Austro-Hungarian National Bank but also provided a suitable ambience for the famous Cafe Central which became the hub of Europe’s intellectual elite towards the end of the 19th Century. Today the Palais Ferstel still captures one’s imagination with its perfect combination of various architectural styles and represents a refreshing symbiosis of impressive architecture in a classical surrounding with state-of-the-art facilities. Its sympathetic restoration, which remained true to the original down to the very last detail, has returned the building to its former splendour. At the same time, all the requirements of contemporary living have been fully taken into consideration.
The magnificent, art historically valuable house is a landmarked building. It is one of the most beautiful and important buildings of the Baroque period in Vienna in terms of its particularly beautiful façade, the charming interior of the entrance hall, the sculptural decoration of its stairwell and its interiors.

A Gesamtkunstwerk or total work of art from the Baroque age, the Austrian National Library’s State Hall – the former imperial court library – is considered the world’s most beautiful library hall. Emperor Charles VI commissioned the construction of this gem of profane Baroque architecture for his own court library. The State Hall was built between 1723 and 1726 based on plans by court architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach and his son, Joseph Emanuel. The magnificent ceiling frescoes by the hand of Daniel Gran were completed in 1730.
The frescoes of the entrance wing (‘Wing of War’) deal with secular and martial themes. In the ‘Wing of Peace’ at the rear, which connects to the Hofburg and from where the emperor and the imperial household originally accessed the structure, the depictions show allegorical scenes related to the heavens and peace. The fresco in the dome represents an apotheosis of Charles VI, the initiator of the court library, featuring an allegory of its erection. The four splendid Baroque globes installed in the central oval were made by Vincenzo Coronelli (1650–1718). Together with the marble statues by the brothers Peter and Paul Strudel and the walnut bookcases, they form an authentic image of an eighteenth-century universal library of the Baroque.
Among the approximately 200,000 books kept in the State Hall is the personal library of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663–1736), which comprises some 15,000 volumes and is installed in the central oval.

Its characteristic red-brick facade renders Vienna’s Stock Exchange at the Schottenring one of the most important monumental structures of the world-famous Ringstraße built in the 19th Century.

Since its grand opening in 1877 this magnificent building of such historic value has been the centrepiece of the Ringstraße. With an air of congeniality the renowned architect Theophil von Hansen combined the requirements of the trading floor with accompanying social events, turning the magnificent setting of the Vienna Stock Exchange into a sophisticated hub of both financial and social life.
