Palais Ferstel, Vienna: 4 reviews and 15 photos
We were taken by the style of this impressive building which also houses the Café Central, one of Vienna’s most famous restaurants.
Rather than the gastronomic delights of the Café Central, we enjoyed instead the architectural delights of the grand foyer of the Palais Ferstel and the ornate shopping arcade. Upstairs (we didn’t go there) are meeting and convention rooms. Originally this was considered the most “up-to-date” building in Vienna, when designed and built in the 1850s by the architect Heinrich Von Ferstel (who also designed the Votivkirche). Apparently WW2 left it severely damaged, but it now has been completely restored.
Address: Strauchgasse 4, 1010 Wien
Directions: You’ll find it across from the Palais Daun-Kinsky.
