ORF Long Night of Museums 2022 at the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE
Overview tours every 5 minutes (6.15pm - 00.15am)
Every guided tour takes 30 minutes
The Liechtenstein CITY PALACE is held to be the first major building of the High Baroque age in Vienna. Designed as a residence of Prince Johann Adam Andreas I, the palace was remodelled in Rococo Revival style from 1836 to 1847. Get insight into the unique state rooms of the palace, see a magnificent ensemble of Baroque stucco ceilings, opulent neo-Rococo interiors and original furnishings complemented by Michael Thonet’s fine parquet flooring.
The collections of the Prince von und zu Liechtenstein contain major works of European art spanning five centuries and are among the most important private collections in the world. In the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE paintings and furniture from one of the most productive and independent periods in the history of Viennese art, the, in the case of Vienna, almost inseparable Neoclassizism and Biedermeier era, are on view.
Learn more about the history of the princely family and the revitalisation of the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE between 2008 and 2013, which is the largest restoration project in Vienna to date to have been carried out on the basis of scholarly principles of monument preservation.
Finest wines of the Princely Winery can be tasted in the Ballroom (6.00pm - 00.45am).
