The advantageous situation in Vienna’s inner city, the exceptional staterooms and selected masterpieces from the Princely Collections dating from the Neoclassicism and Biedermeier era combine to make the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE a new highlight and the insider’s tip for exclusive events for up to 500 guests. Henceforth, around 250 m² of magnificent historic rooms on the first (upper) floor and around 320 m² on the second floor will be available in the CITY PALACE for exclusive events.

Guided tours give those interested in art an opportunity to view this architectural gem. As in the GARDEN PALACE, guided tours will be available twice a month on selected Fridays - revealing insights into aristocratic life and a tradition of collecting that spans 400 years (advance booking required!). It is, of course, also possible to arrange individual appointments for group tours. As part of the ORF Lange Nacht der Museen 2013 (Long Night of Museums), both palaces will be open for the first time.

The art in the CITY PALACE. From Amerling to Waldmüller

On view in the CITY PALACE are paintings and furniture from one of the most productive and independent periods in the history of Viennese art, the, in the case of Vienna, almost inseparable Neoclassicism and Biedermeier era, including masterpieces from the works of Friedrich von Amerling, Friedrich Gauermann and Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller. They will create an interesting dialogue with the original interior of the building, the first Rococo Revival building in the world.
