State apartments of a town house built by Ludwig Tischler, the "last Baroque architect of Vienna", for countess Marie Razumovsky.
Comprised of a prestigious foyer, a buffet/dining room, a small concert hall for about 70 people, a saloon and a study.
The “Aula der Wissenschaften” has always been a meeting place and a place to share knowledge. Dating back to the 17th century, the building with its lecture halls was originally used by the university. At the top floor, the early baroque building has accommodated the impressive hall of the Jesuit theatre from the very beginning. During the 18th century the “Wiener Zeitung”– the oldest daily newspaper in the world – had its editorial department on these highly traditional premises, and also the Austrian State Printing House had its home there. After the renovation and restoration of the building (2003 – 2006), the historic premises, with their pillars, arches and vaulted ceilings, have retained their natural atmosphere, while intensifying the dialogue with the present. Spacious glass surfaces provide the kind of transparency that is also inherent in state-of-the-art science: progressive, open, an escape from the elitist, intellectual ivory tower.
This magnificent building in the style of the Neo-Renaissance was built on behalf of the banker, Eduard Freiherr von Todesco, in the years 1861 to 1864 by the architects Ludwig von Förster and Theophil von Hansen. The artist Carl Rahl designed the interior ceiling painting. The walls and ceilings are made of precious wood paneling and the ballroom itself is a work of art. The painting "Judgement of Paris" is located on the ceiling of the former, also richly decorated, dining room, now Salon Paris.
The majestic Hotel Imperial and its sumptuous surroundings were originally created in 1863 as the Prince of Württemberg’s Viennese residence. Overlooking the historic Ring Boulevard in central Vienna, the building was transformed into a hotel to accommodate discerning visitors of the 1873 World’s Fair. Truly the palace of a prince, the façade is Italian Neo Renaissance with emblematic details.
Atop the building is a stone balustrade that elegantly frames a group of allegorical animals from the Württemberg coat of arms. The portal group is dominated by four impressive statues that are equally symbolic. The original entrance, flanked by two stone sentry boxes, was wide enough to accommodate a two-horse drawn carriage.
The interior furnishings of the Hotel Imperial artfully showcase the 19th Century romance of Vienna with pristine marble, hand carved statues, and spectacular crystal chandeliers. The time-honored Imperial Restaurant and Kaffeehaus Café Imperial Wien have accommodated many famous authors and composers.
Inside the lobby, a Royal Staircase leading up to suites and rooms is lit by magnificent chandeliers that sparkle and shimmer from high stucco ceilings radiating aristocratic flair. Private balconies offer splendid views of the roofs and spires of old Vienna.

The "Am Hof" and "Freyung" parking garages are in the immediate vicinity.
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.
