A sight that
In unison, two horses trot through baroque Vienna before being brought to a stop by the coachman. A distinguished gentleman gets off the carriage and extends his hand to his wife. Behind them a palace right out of a fairy-tale, whose majestic beauty takes everyone's breath away.
Peter Freiherr von Strudl, an influential Austrian painter and sculptor, acquired a total of five plots of land at the back of the Schottenpoint in 1690. The Viennese court painter built the Palais Strudlhof in this exact location, which from then on went down in history as Strudlberg.
Let your soul bloom
Slowly they wander through the 2,000 m2 garden. A flowering monument that is by no means inferior to the palace in terms of splendour and size. A spectacular wealth of exotic and rare plants. A beguiling experience that seduces all the senses.
The First World War
The Austrian-Hungarian Foreign Minister Leopold Graf von Berchtold acquires the Strudlhof. After the murder of the Austro-Hungarian heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, he invites all ministers to the palace and formulates the fateful ultimatum to Serbia that triggers the First World War.
A precious treasure
A step over the threshold reveals that the Palais is more than just a magnificent property in the heart of the imperial city of Vienna. No matter where you look: historic walls with authentic flair – solemn, monumental, inspired by classical models.
The year 1970
Palais Strudlhof becomes the venue of the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks on the issue of nuclear arms control. These bilateral conferences involve the United States and the Soviet Union.
Splendour and imperial atmosphere
Music echoes through the halls, the noble wooden floor vibrates to the beat of the dancers. Under the chandelier, couples sway in each other’s arms as turn and turn in circles. A celebration that the world has never seen before.
Vienna's Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, can be reached quickly and easily from Palais Strudlhof – on foot, by car, or with public transport. Stroll comfortably through the characteristic alleys and let yourself be encompassed by the flair of this great metropolis.
