The Palais Schwarzenberg has an eventful history. The palace was built as a summer representation building after the first turkish expulsion in 1697. The Fürstenhaus Schwarzenberg acquired the later magnificent building in a kind of shell some time later and completed it in 1704.
As one of the few 5-star hotels in Vienna in the 80s and 90s, the Hotel Palais Schwarzenberg gained world fame until it closed in 2006.
Since 2007, the building and the associated Palace Garden have experienced many owners and as many planned uses; from the hotel project to the casino to a private housing project in the garden, there have been many creative approaches.
In cooperation with Hoppe Architekten ZT GmbH and the architectural firm Univ. Prof. Mag. Arch. Wolfgang Tschapeller, we have been working on the ambitious project right from the start in the areas of structural design, building physics, site coordination and fire protection. The hotel project was taken up again by the HOLSTER Privatstiftung and is extended with a suite hotel in the garden. The Palais Schwarzenberg by Fischer von Erlach will shine in a newsplendour and will once again become a meeting place for guests from all over the world.
