The Palais Mesmer was located in Vienna's 3rd district, Landstrasse, at today's Rasumofskygasse 29.

The likely builder of the palace was Bernhard Heinrich von Germeten . His daughters sold the then probably one-story palace with garden and orangery around 1753 for 9,000 guilders to the von Posch couple. After the death of Ferdinand Konrad von Posch in 1766, the widow, Maria Anna von Posch, married the famous doctor and namesake of the Palais Franz Anton Mesmer on January 10, 1768 , who had the house rebuilt and refurbished. The Palais Mesmer is considered one of two possible locations for the world premiere of the Singspiel Bastien and Bastienne by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1768. The Palais was demolished in 1919.
