The magnificent halls of Vienna‘s Imperial Palace provide a truly unforgettable ambience. The Hofburg's building complex was built during the course of 6 centuries, located right in the heart of Vienna's city centre. Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architectural styles were incorporated into the construction and contributed to its unique appearance. Finally, the Hofburg became the imperial residence and housed the Habsburgs until 1918. The Festival Hall (Festsaal) of the Hofburg is truly majestic with its impressive ceiling paintings. The Ceremonial Hall (Zeremoniensaal) is also impressive with its magnificent marble columns. It was once the venue for court concerts and grand gala evenings under Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth.
The renowned Vienna Konzerthaus has also a long history to look back on, from its first planning in 1890 as a house for music festivals to its important role after the Second World War as part of the renewal of Austrian musical life. The Konzerthaus soon established itself as one of the leading organizers of contemporary music in Austria with its unique atmosphere and wide range of musical programs.
