The Lobkowitz Palace was the first important town palace built in Vienna after 1683. Count Philipp Sigmund von Lobkowitz commissioned it from Johann Fischer von Erlach. In 1745, the Lobkowitz, a very musical family, took over the palace. Philipp Emanuel Bach, Christoph Willibald Gluck and many other famous artists played for them. In 1804, the palace was the venue for the first private performance of Beethoven‘s Third Symphony, the „Eroica"; in 1807 his Fourth Symphony was also first performed here. During the Congress of Vienna, many magnificent balls and receptions were held at the palace. It was the venue for numerous formal receptions, elegant soirees, concerts and balls. Continuing this tradition, we offer you the opportunity to stage events in one of Austria‘s most beautiful baroque palaces.
