Once the residence of the Princes von und zu Liechtenstein, one of Europe’s most ancient noble lineages, the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE at the heart of Vienna is among the most magnificent events venues in the city. After an extensive programme of restoration lasting five years, the palace – which is still privately owned by the princely family – is now resplendent in all its former glory.
A magnificent ensemble of Baroque stucco ceilings, opulent neo-Rococo interiors, and colourful silk wallhangings complemented by Michael Thonet’s fine parquet flooring form a harmonious whole. Approximately 1,200 LED lights have replaced the historic candlelight on the massive chandeliers. Around 250 m² of magnificent historic rooms on the first (upper) floor and around 320 m² on the second floor are available for exclusive events. In addition, the Minoritenhalle on the ground floor, with its light wood cladding, own kitchen and direct access to the courtyard, offers an attractive and modern alternative, covering around 150 m². The luxurious ambience of the palaces ensures moments to remember – at elegant cocktail receptions, weddings, gala dinners, seminars, congresses, award ceremonies, fashion shows and concerts.
On view in the CITY PALACE are highlights of the private art collection of the Prince von und zu Liechtenstein: paintings and furniture from one of the most productive and independent periods in the history of Viennese art, the Neoclassicism and Biedermeier era, including masterpieces from the works of Friedrich von Amerling, Friedrich Gauermann and Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller.
