Elegant Palace in the Heart of Vienna
Last updated on May 9th, 2020
Palais Pallavicini is a gorgeous Austrian palace built in the late 18th century. It is located in the heart of Vienna, opposite the National Library, near the Hofburg. This neo-classicist building is elegant and modest on the outside, while the baroque styled interior is exquisite with its gold decoration on white walls, huge crystal chandeliers and many mirrors. The period furniture, elegant patterned wallpaper and beautiful carpets make this location perfect for any period piece set in an aristocratic palace. This palace has a variety of rooms, like ballrooms, salons, marble halls and a courtyard covered in green ivy. An unusual fact is that it is still owned by the Pallavicini family; they keep these historic rooms well restorated. This is a family with more than a thousand year old history. It is unique because it is the only family to have the honor of having the margrave title in both Austria and Hungary.
This is a popular location for the filmmakers of the past and present alike: it was used as the apartment of Harry Lime, the character that was performed by Orson Welles in the 1949 film The Third Man. 64 years later, the 2013 Italian film The Best Offer was also filmed in this building.
