  • As noted by other knowledgeable trip-advisors, the Palace has been closed since the winter of 2017. It was made available to the Austrian State for the duration of the Austrian Presidency of the EU until the end of 2018. Due to its proximity to the Federal Ministry of finance, and its sumptuous, perfectly restored framework, it should serve at various prestige events including the celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the European Customs Union. It will reopen for the public beginning 2019. Do not miss the beautiful mural of the second siege of Vienna by the Turks in 1683. The disgruntled Restorer added a cycling anachronistic perched on a Grand-bi. Will you find it among the hundreds of characters represented? A typical Viennese humor. Gruss Gott!

  • It is a building that was the winter pavilion of the Vienna hero, Prinz Eugen. When I looked at the map, I thought it was a good place to find it, but I walked around looking for it. Were you tired of walking around the city of Vienna? This is a fashionable building with a white exterior wall.

  • The Ministry of Finance has returned the premises for their own use at the end of October 2017 as requested. In 2018, the palace will be the venue for the Brexit negotiations during Austria's EU Council Presidency After that, who knows?
  • The Winter Palace of Prince Eugene is a high-Baroque palace in the Innere Stadt district of Vienna, Austria. Located on a narrow street at Himmelpfortgasse 8, the palace was used as the winter residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy, who spent his summers at the Belvedere. The Winter Palace was designed and constructed by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach from 1695 to 1700, and by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt from 1702 to 1724 following his predecessor's plans. The palace was acquired through auction by Empress Maria Theresa for the imperial court in 1738, along with most of the prince's other buildings. In 1752, the palace was converted by Nicolò Pacassi into the seat of various state institutions. The palace housed the Finance Ministry of the Austrian Empire from 1848 to 1918 and the dissolution of the Habsburg Empire. Since 1919, the palace has housed the Ministry of Finance. From 2007 to 2013, the palace was extensively renovated. The Winter Palace of Prince Eugene is considered "one of the most magnificent Baroque edifices in Vienna".
