Palais Pallavicini

Elegant Palace in the Heart of Vienna

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.
