But don’t say just Kinsky to him, whatever you do.
The palace is in fact named Daun-Kinsky, after the man that commissioned it: Field Marshal Count Wirich Philipp Laurenz Graf von und zu Daun. He had this opulent Baroque palace built between 1713 and 1719 by renowned master architect Lukas von Hildebrandt. Inside, it features eye-catching stucco work by Alberto Camesina and breathtaking frescoes by Carlo Innocenzo Carlone and Marcantonio Chiarini.
Palais Daun-Kinsky is Vienna’s most elegant address for opulent functions and parties. Weddings, christenings, birthdays, award ceremonies, conferences and glittering events all call for the kind of impressive architecture that matches the occasion. In the heart of Vienna, in the Freyung quarter. With uninterrupted views of the Schottenkirche church.
