Facilities

The Conference Center Laxenburg (located in Vienna‑Laxenburg) combines imperial elegance with a comfortable atmosphere and a modern touch. Extraordinary conferences can be organized in an exclusive atmosphere, where once Empress Maria Theresia and her court enjoyed theater performances and culinary delights and where the Habsburgs celebrated their numerous occasions. Even the generals held their conferences in today's state and function rooms. Important decisions regarding Europe's history have been pronounced here. The Palace Theater and the dining wing were built in 1753, following designs by Nicolo Pacassi. The dining wing is located where the former Sinzendorf house stood and belonged to the Imperial family from around 1756 onwards. Inside, the "Ovaler Saal" (Oval Hall) has an impressive ceiling fresco by Vinzenz Fischer showing "putti hunting with falcons" and the walls have architectural paintings. With the renovation of the derelict palace in 1980 by the Republic of Austria and the provinces of Vienna and Lower Austria, the theater was turned into a unique conference center. The facade facing the park entrance has a high portico with curved gable and its walls are partially decorated with sunk panels as well as raised panels. Inside, some paintings of illusionist architecture in the auditorium remain from the late Baroque period. In Maria Theresia’s time many people from Emperors to simple folk, came to Laxenburg Palace in order to meet or take part in events. For centuries, along with Schönbrunn and the Hofburg, Laxenburg was the most important domicile of the Habsburgs. The Conference Center Laxenburg has been fully renovated and appears in a new light since 2008.
