Street sign

The neighborhood around the Dannebergplatz is on the 3rd Vienna district , highway . It was created after the Vienna city administration bought the Palais Arenberg with its large garden in 1900 and had it partially parceled out and built up.

The quarter lies between Landstraßer Hauptstrasse and Ungargasse and forms a closed ensemble of upper-class houses in the style of late historicism . Most of these houses have five storeys with reliefs on the façade, some of which are already influenced by Secessionism . For Dannebergplatz section a major part of Ziehrer- and Sebastian course be expected that Neulinggasse from Ziehrerplatz to Ungargasse that Dapontegasse, a large part of Hintzerstraße and Ries and Engelsberggasse (with the exception of the intermediate community building). All of the traffic areas mentioned were laid out in this parceling out or (as in the case of Neulinggasse) extended into this area.

Arenberg Park

The heart of the district is the Arenbergpark, created in 1907. The north side of the park is bordered by Neulinggasse , which was extended eastwards from Ungargasse after 1900 . The park borders directly on houses to the east. Since 1943, the square and park have been dominated by two anti- aircraft towers (flak = anti-aircraft gun). A garden pavilion has been preserved from the Palais Arenberg.


The course was in 1906 as access to 1,906 to 1,908 to the west and south of the Arenberg park newly built houses as Arenberg ring opened and 1949 social democratic after perished in Auschwitz politician Robert Dannenberg , an exponent of the Red Vienna who has lived at the Reisnerstraße in the 3rd district , named. Dannebergplatz encompasses the south and west of the Arenbergpark, which opened in 1900 and 1907 (hence the former name ... ring) in the form of a street. Building No. 6 (next to the house at Barmherzigengasse 1), right next to the flak tower, up to No. 20 at the corner of Neulinggasse 5, is entered on the electronic city map of the Vienna City Administration. Almost all buildings are in one go by two architects, Georg Berger (numbers 7, 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, 19) and Wenzel König (numbers 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 18, 19) was created. Exceptions are No. 12 and 13 ( Carl Caufal ), 16 ( Paul Gütl ) and No. 18 (Dapontegasse 2, Johann Marschall )

One of the first Buddhist centers in Austria was founded on Dannebergplatz in 1976 .

  • No. 9: The house was built in 1908 by W. König and Friedrich Schläfrig . The sculptural, monumental facade is equipped with mighty gable buildings and a richly designed roof section, the round corner solution is richly structured. The ornamentation is designed in the style of the plait style.
  • No. 11: The house was designed by Georg Berger and Guido Gröger. It is the only purely secessionist building on the square. Influences from the early Wagner school can be identified, but their origin remains unclear. The iron bars of the balconies swing out slightly, the glass roof with iron ribs protrudes strongly. The stucco ornamentation is under the influence of the Wiener Werkstätte and is covered with blue tile inlays, which are combined to form a frieze below the roof. The portal is flanked by mask-like girl figures.
  • No. 16: The house was built in 1908 by Paul Gütl. The facade is strictly structured, the decor neoclassical. Accents are set by elongated balconies, the side bay windows are crowned by balusters.
  • No. 19: The Arenberghof was built in 1906 by Georg Berger. The monumental facade has a mighty gable, on the side axes there are balcony niches, next to each a two-axis bay building.


The alley was laid out in 1906 and named after Lorenzo da Ponte . This alley with its picturesque line of façades has been completely preserved; the urban development value of the street lies in this unity. The facades are often loosened up by rounding and equipped with oversized ornamentation, whereby in addition to baroque elements there are occasional secessionist elements. Towards Dannebergplatz, the facades with tower-like elevations are particularly striking.

According to the topography of art , they are among the most important architectural achievements of the last phase of Viennese historicism . Friedrich Achleitner comments critically that what appears to be even more balanced and subdued on Dannebergplatz has overturned into new rich self-portrayal in Dapontegasse.

  • No. 6-8 (Riesgasse 6): The twin houses date from 1907 by Leopold Fuchs . The décor of the houses is lavish with rounded, tower-like corner solutions and small gable structures above the portal axes. It has both stone and lattice balconies.
  • No. 7: The house was built in 1907 by Ignaz Reiser . The facade is accentuated by slightly arched oriels with curved gables, which are connected on the third floor by a stone balcony. The portal has a rounded arched gable with a girl's mask as a keystone.
  • No. 9: The house was designed by Ignaz Reiser in 1908. The facade is grooved and has stone balconies. Roof and gable structures as well as window crowns are kept in Baroque style.
  • No. 10 (Engelsberggasse 6): The house was built in 1907 by Moritz Feldhendler , it has lattice balconies on the rounded corner.

Other houses come from Jakob Gartner (No. 3, 1907/08; No. 4, 1906), Rudolf Erdös (No. 5, 1907), Hugo Schuster (No. 11, 1909), Rudolf Kmunke (No. 12, 1906 ) and Anton Hein (No. 13, 1906). House no.12 is connected to Ungargasse 53 and 51 (Neulinggasse 15), which were also designed by Rudolf Kmunke in 1905/06.


Engelsberggasse was named in 1906 after the composer ES Engelsberg (pseudonym of Eduard Schön (1825–1879)) and built in 1906/07. With the exception of the municipal building at No. 3 ( Alfred Chalousch and Heinrich Schopper , 1926/27) and the corner house No. 6 to Dapontegasse (No. 10, Moritz Feldhendler, 1907), all buildings are by Leopold Fuchs (including the corner houses to Neulinggasse ( No. 1 = Neulinggasse 11 and No. 2 = Neulinggasse 13)). House number 4 is a listed building .


The street named after the entrepreneur and philanthropist Gottlieb Hintzer (1731–1805) was built in 1905–1912 and has a similar character to Dapontegasse with the exception of the corner house no. 1 on Landstraßer Hauptstraße and the houses at the end of the street towards Sebastianplatz. The houses are from Siegfried Kramer (No. 2, 1910), Carl Caufal (No. 3, 5, both 1905), Carl Jagersberger (No. 4, 1911), Rudolf Erdös (No. 7, 1910), W. König (No. 10, 1912) and Carl Pitkowitz (No. 12, 1912)

  • No. 8 (Pfarrhofgasse 16, Ziehrerplatz 9a): The house was built by Ernst Ornstein in 1912 and is the corner point of Ziehrerplatz, not least because of the polygonal bay window.
  • No. 9–11: Rochushof : This courtyard-like facility was built in 1910 by Heinrich Kestel. It has a richly silhouetted roof landscape with oriel porches and tower-like curves. The baroque stucco ornamentation is complemented by figure decorations (women with wreaths of ears on the street facades, griffins with eagles on the courtyard facade). Achleitner criticizes the unfavorable apartment floor plans, which are due to the large wing depth.


From Neulinggasse, only the section from Ziehrerplatz to Ungargasse belongs to this ensemble; the street that previously only reached into Ungargasse was extended in 1906. The street was named in 1862 after the innkeeper Vinzenz Neuling (1795–1846). The facades of the houses are a little more reserved and flat. The buildings come from: Jakob Gartner (No. 7 (Riesgasse 1), 1906), Leopold Fuchs (No. 9 (Riesgasse 2), 1906; No. 11 (Engelsberggasse 1), 1906; No. 13 (Engelsberggasse 2), 1906; No. 28, 1903), W. König (No. 10 (Ziehrerplatz 6), 1914; No. 12, 1914; No. 14, 1914), Rudolf Kmunke (No. 15, 1905), Rudolf Erdös (No. . 16 (Sebastianplatz 9), 1906; No. 18 (Sebastianplatz 1), 1905), Max Lambert (No. 20, 22, both 1905), Moritz Feldhendler (No. 24, 1905), Carl Stephann (No. 26, 1904).


Riesgasse was named in 1906 after the composer and Beethoven biographer Ferdinand Ries (1784–1838). As with Engelsberggasse, the communal housing in between (No. 4) from 1927 does not belong to the ensemble. Houses No. 3 and 5 were built by Max Döring in 1907, two corner houses (No. 1 = Neulinggasse 7, No. 7 = Dapontegasse 4), the other two (No. 2 = Neulinggasse 9, No. 6) were built by Jakob Gartner = Dapontegasse 6) are by Leopold Fuchs.


On Sebastianplatz, named after one of the two patron saints of the Rochus Church , there are only four buildings left that belong to this ensemble. These come from Rudolf Erdös (No. 1 (Neulinggasse 18), 1905; No. 7, 1908; No. 9 (Neulinggasse 16), 1905) and Max Lambert (No. 2, 1907). The school at no. 3 ( Wilhelm Baumgarten , 1934/35) and the other buildings on the square date from the inter-war or post-war period.


The square was originally named Rochusplatz in 1905 (not to be confused with the square around Rochusmarkt, which has been named since 2016 ) and renamed in 1933 after the composer Carl Michael Ziehrer (1843-1922). Only the north and west sides belong to the ensemble of Dannebergplatz; there, too, it is broken through by Theophil Niemann's municipal housing at No. 8, which was built in 1929 . The buildings are by W. König (No. 6 (Neulinggasse 10), 1914), Michael Maibaum (No. 7, 1914), Ernst Ornstein (9A (Hintzerstraße 8, Pfarrhofgasse 16), 1912), Rudolf Erdös (No. 9 (Hintzerstraße 7), 1910; No. 10, 1911). The house at Pfarrhofgasse 13 (W. König, 1912) also belongs to the ensemble.

  • No. 10 (Pfarrhofgasse 15) The house was built by Rudolf Erdös in 1910/11. Achleitner grants it its own musicality as an Empire paraphrase and feels a little reminiscent of Parisian houses.
