Hardegg Palace

The Palais Hardegg is located in the first Viennese district of Inner City , Freyung first


In 1847, Imperial Count Maximilian Hardegg commissioned the architects Johann Romano and August Schwendenwein to convert the palace into a rental palace in the style of early historicism . This makes it one of the rare examples of a rental palace in the inner city. The earliest predecessor building, the Admonter Hof, dates back to the 15th century. In 1572 it became the Palais Breuner and numerous other noble families followed: 1670 Palffy, 1694 Kaunitz , 1797 Metternich , 1805 Esterházy and 1827 Colloredo-Mansfeld .

Today the building is owned by a foundation left by Karl Wlaschek in 2015 .


The relatively narrow, light green facade facing the Freyung does not suggest the size of the palace, which extends over two inner courtyards to the Palais Ferstel . The 5-storey building has a rusticated basement with segmented arched windows with arched blocks that have been opened to business portals. A striking frieze separates the four cuboid upper floors from the base zone. The central and side axes are emphasized on the piano nobile by balconies on double consoles that rest on pilaster strips with diamond ashlar. The windows are framed with Corinthian pilasters and the central window, a triple window, has a blown triangular gable roof with a heraldic cartouche. In the central axis, the windows on the upper floors are designed as double windows. While the top floor has segment-arched windows and window canopies, all other windows in the window structure have rounded corners and a straight roofing. Belt cornices and a massive cornice with a beautiful ornamental shape emphasize the horizontal.
