Facilities

The Palais Niederösterreich is the building that housed the medieval estates, this is where the revolution of 1848 started. This is where the first Republic of Austria was founded in 1918. And this is where the Provincial Government and the Provincial Parliament of Lower Austria had their seat from 1922 on. Herrengasse, between City Hall and the Hofburg, in the center of the Republic. A place where history is alive. Today ‑ and tomorrow.

In a historic building in the middle of Vienna one finds a unique venue for events with the most up‑to‑date equipment. Since 2005 the Landhaus was lovingly renovated and restored following guidelines for the protection of historical monuments. The four magnificent state rooms on the first floor have been restored down to the smallest detail and are fully air‑conditioned and equipped with the most modern technical equipment. The Landhauskapelle (chapel) and three additional seminar rooms, named after famous former Governors of Lower Austria, are to be found on the ground floor. Palais Niederösterreich provides unforgettable surroundings for events for up to 670 participants. Seminars, conferences, cultural events, banquets, product presentations, exhibitions, balls and events – everything is possible.

General Description Meeting & Exhibit Facilities

Meeting Rooms

LandhausKapelle/Gotisches Zimmer ‑ Originally the home of the so‑called Staende, the political representatives of upper classes, knights, prelates and towns. The Staende were the precursors of the Lower Austrian Parliament. The Staende acquired the Landhaus in 1513 in order to be near the reigning prince and to hold assemblies in Vienna. Precious interiors such as the Landhauskapelle and the Gotisches Zimmer have remained from this late Gothic building.

Theatre/Auditorium

Grosser Saal ‑ With its vault erected in the middle of the 16th century, this conference hall was built in renaissance style and decorated in the baroque period with precious frescos that symbolize glory and honor. In the 18th and 19th centuries the large Landhaussaal was a very popular ballroom and concert hall, where many important first performances took place.
