The splendid Auersperg Palace with its magnificent private park has been the home of the Vienna Residence Orchestra since its foundation. The baroque Palace inspired Richard Strauss to create his famouss opera "Der Rosenkavalier". It was built in 1706 by Giovanni Christiano Neupauer according to plans created by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. The building was eventually passed to the Auersperg princely family in 1777. Since then it has been an important meeting place for the European aristocracy as well as for important political meetings.
