Located in the heart of one of Vienna’s oldest and most beautiful areas, the first district, you will find the famous Palais Ferstel. The historical building is one of the most interesting houses of the Wilhelminian style and Venetian‑Florentine Trecento architecture, and was created as a bank and stock exchange by the architect Heinrich von Ferstel (built between 1856 and 1860). Today’s “Grosser Ferstelsaal” once served as the main bidding room of the stock exchange and was the very center of high finance during the years of the Danube monarchy. The building also provides a suitable ambience with its world‑famous Café Central which is the hub of the Viennese Herrengasse. The central location and easy access to extensive transport facilities makes the Palais Ferstel one of the top addresses in town.
