  • A small three-storey building on Jozefsplac Square is called a palace. It was built in the late 18TH century. The elegant family emblem of Palavicini is attracted to the attention in the form of two-headed eagle, supported by 2 figures, and a portal with four antique cariid sculptures. In front of the building is a monument to Joseph II, which looks good from behind on the background of the palace.

  • On a recent tour we had dinner at this location. The building is stunning, and the mood that was created was stellar. Since this was part of a tour I have no idea as to the cost of the dinner. The din...  more »

  • I had my wedding here and while the venue was beautiful, I was misled and relied on affirmations to my detriment. I inquired whether there will be air conditioning since my wedding was taking place on a hot summer day, and I was assured by the wedding planner , Frau Wimmer, that there would be sufficient air conditioning. My wedding took place in July and we were absolutely miserable because of the heat. All that was provided was a tiny air cooler from the 70's. It was completely a joke. My guests were drenched in sweat and as a bride, I was very uncomfortable with the temperature situation. If you can imagine, this was the MOST important day of my life and it was a pleasant feeling to be in such hot temperatures. Nothing was done to resolve the issue. I would stay far away from organizing any events during the entire summer here. You have been warned.
  • Sorry, this is about Palais Palffy, not Pallais fries. I read the reviews of all the other people so I was a little daunted. So off I went. We bought the tickets off a street seller, which was the wrong thing to do as I think we got stung on the price which was 'discounted,' to 42 euros each as we are pensioners! Yes, now I realise we've been well and truly done on the price of course, serve us right for being naive. The venue was a few hundred yards behind the main opera house, but nothing like it of course. It was well used and very tired, not a lot of grandeur here, maybe once in it's time a long time ago. Dark, musty and smelling of damp. One annoying feature considering the cost of the tickets was they robbed me of 1.50 euros to put my coat in the cloakroom which I didnt want but they said it was the rule although other people had their jackets on all through the performance maybe they complained. The hall was small, musty and all on the flat with pillars in the way of some people. It only held about 200 people all in. When the doors were shut it got VERY hot and I was sweating like a horse. Here came the performers, by now I wasnt convinced I'd done the right thing, but I was pleasantly surprised. The seven musicians were all very accomplished and the lead violinist was really good, he did some quite complicated Strauss pieces in a very fast tempo without fault. The others were in fine tune and sounded fine to me. The opera singer lady had the sweetest voice and was so pleasant to listen to I could have listened to her all night and certainly dressed the part too in a beautiful deep blue sparkly dress and shoulder cape. The two ballet dancers were very pleasant on the eye and really gave a good performance with the limited space and bouncy floor the Male dancer had a wonderful expression on his face as if he thoroughly enjoyed what he was doing and the female was small and pretty and dainty. I just thought the period costume they wore in the first half looked a little threadbare and needed sprucing up. Apart from that I found it a pleasantly entertaining evening, if a bit ripped off with prices. Never mind, I enjoyed it, but haggle with the sellers if you want to go. I'm not an accomplished theatre goer although I do attend quite a few venues, so if you're used to the higher end of the opera scale I would go to the opera house instead and be prepared to pay full Vienna prices.
