On 1 January 2011, the Verkehrsbüro Group took over operation of Palais Ferstel, Palais Daun-Kinsky, Wiener Börsensäle and Café Central. These historic buildings at the heart of Vienna offer a total of 2,500 square metres of event space for 1,700 guests. With its takeover of these venues, the Verkehrsbüro Group has further expanded its leading position in the market for events.
The historic palaces are in superb condition, restored true to the original and equipped with all the latest technology. For company celebrations and seminars, image events and trade fairs, festive banquets, balls and private parties, Palais Events offers magnificent rooms and professional catering.
Palais Daun-Kinsky is located on Freyung in Vienna. It was built between 1713 and 1716 for Count Philipp Laurenz Graf von und zu Daun and is one of the most striking examples of baroque architecture. The palace has an impressive variety of rooms, with magnificent stucco decoration and fresco quadratura paintings. The Daun-Kinsky can accommodate up to 220 people, with in-house catering available exclusively to guests.
Palais Ferstel was built by architect Heinrich von Ferstel between 1856 and 1860. In addition to elegant rooms and an arcade with a glass roof, the palace also offered a suitable space for the Café Central. This became a social hub for the intellectual elite of Europe towards the end of the 19th century. The Great Ferstel Hall in Romantic Historicist style is one of the most sumptuous rooms in all Vienna. Palais Ferstel can accommodate events for up to 750 people, with catering provided in-house.
The Vienna Stock Exchange building on Schottenring designed by Theophil von Hansen is one of the most important monuments on Ringstrasse. Built between 1871 and 1877, the space offered an impressive setting to link stock exchange trading with the associated social events. The imposing ceremonial hall and arcades can accommodate up to 450 people.
The traditional Café Central combines an ambitious culinary cuisine with an emphasis on Austrian coffeehouse classics with a fine patisserie.
