The gala halls of Palais Auersperg

Eleven halls in different sizes provides the suitably exquisite setting for events of almost any size. 
Palais Auersperg offers
countless options for your event, either individually or in combination with others.

 

Knight of the Rose Hall

The centre of the palace: unique in its oval form, impressive in its height, unmatched in its acoustics and sumptuous with its marble pilasters, crystal chandeliers and reliefs by Henrici. It would also be remiss not to mention that all of the crystal chandeliers can be dimmed and that the room is completely air-conditioned.

Park

The 5000 m² palace park, with its collection of historical ancient trees and extensive lawns offers almost limitless possibilities for events: Whether as the setting for your wedding celebration, summer festivals under open skies, or as an oasis of calm in the hectic hustle and bustle of the city’s government district, the garden has something for everyone’s tastes.

Gallery

 

Winter garden

A delightful architectural counterpoint to the gala halls. It rises above the grounds and is completed by a gallery and glass roof. Light and sound equipment is already in place. The winter garden is, together with the catering kitchen and the American Bar, a stylish “plug and play” location for any event, any time, day or night.

Old restaurant

The special features of this room are the wonderful murals, which are protected by acrylic glass. The corner room is visible in the background. This room is ideally suited to serve as a lounge area, or as an extension of the winter garden. A set of steps brings you to the second entrance. The south wing can be used independently of the central core of the building.

Library

Classically dignified, the extensive polished wood makes the library a cosy optional extension of the connecting winter gardens. The room’s splendour is a reminder that the Swedish royal court once found the palace suitable enough to take up residence here. It can be used for conferences in an intimate and exquisite setting, as well as a location for film-shoots, catering and much, much more.

Hall room

The hall room forms the axis through the seemingly endless palace and provides access to the palace park. Organisers of conferences and conventions make use of it, and it can also be used as a buffet space for larger events. It may also be used as an extension of the Vestibule.

Gallery

 

Gluck gallery

The house’s musical heritage is vast: Christoph Willibald Gluck, working in his capacity as the palace concert master, wrote his contributions to world music here, and Joseph Haydn and Mozart, no less, performed works for the first time here. The Gluck gallery can be used as an extension of the Rosen Kavalier hall for gala seating, or as a buffet space.

Idomeneo hall

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart performed his opera Idomeneo for the first time here in 1786. This was, because of the Lenten period, a concert performance. The hall can be used for a wedding of up to 70 people, an opulent dinner for up to 60 guests, or for a break out session for a conference – it’s versatility is nearly endless. The hall is connected to the Rosen Kavalier hall, allowing it to be extended as required.

Emperor’s hall

Portraits of emperor Franz Joseph as a child and a young boy hang here, as well as the Flemish tapestry “The Jews leaving the Promised Land” (from the 16th century). They belong to the palace’s most valuable artistic treasures. The emperor’s hall can also be used for breakout sessions, as a wedding suite or as dining space. It may also be used as an extension of, or reception room for, the Crown Prince Rudolph Hall.

Crown Prince Rudolph Hall

The hall, decorated in white, cream and gold, exudes a cool and elegant classicism. The ivy garlands on the ceiling are intertwined with antique repertoires of form, as well as a frieze in the style popularised during Louis XVI’s reign. The whole ensemble contributes to the room’s special beauty. This room is especially popular for weddings. Exclusive conferences, exquisite dinners and much more can also be organised here.

Loggia

The dome-shaped ceiling decorations and the complicated alcoves give the loggia a certain majesty, despite its small size. The loggia is located between the library, the Crown Prince Rudolph Hall, the music salon and the winter garden. It is therefore ideally suited for use as a lounge or VIP area.

Maria Theresa Hall

The precious silk wall paper with Greek antique motifs, the magnificent stoves and the fine wooden floor all add to this room’s special elegance. The room is an excellent demonstration of the way in which the palace was redesigned from the baroque to the classical style.

Panorama

 

Music salon

Although it is connected to the winter garden by a high arcade, the music salon remains an individual architectural entity and also boasts valuable tapestries of its own. An ample buffet is often served here when large conferences or high-class meals are being held in the winter garden. The music salon forms an extension of the winter garden and provides extra capacity.

Rofrano hall

The Spanish noble Marchese Rofrano was one of the first owners of the palace. He was made immortal through the literary figure of the Rosen Kavalier.

Panorama

 

Vestibule

The ideal prelude for any event. It provides a generous connection between the inner and the outer space: Outside is the Vienna government district with its majestic buildings and parks. Inside, the grand staircase embraces the visitor upon entry and takes them into one of the most exclusive houses in the city. The Vestibule is ideally suited for a stylish reception.
