Events with style

How do you want to stage your event?

Whether it’s an unforgettable event, conference, seminar or meeting, product launch or exhibition, formal banquet or reception, ball or private function – we have the ideal location for you!

Do you prefer Venetian Trecento? Or perhaps baroque opulence is more to your taste? Then again, maybe the Neo-Renaissance has caught your imagination? Well, we have exactly the right locations for your functions and meetings in Vienna’s historic city centre.

There’s Palais Daun-Kinsky and Palais Ferstel, which are both located on the picturesque Freyung square. Or the spacious Börsensäle on Vienna’s showpiece Ringstrasse boulevard. And that’s before you get to Café Central on Herrengasse. Brimming with Viennese charm, it is the place for excellent food and peerless pastries.

Organising events is a pleasure with Palais Events, right from the planning phase.

Exclusive in-house catering, custom technical solutions, and decorations tailored to your exact needs – we offer everything under one roof!

Our Service

Cooking up a storm

Based at Palais Ferstel and Café Central, our excellent in-house catering service ensures that every event is a culinary experience to remember

Our Executive Chef is the kind of chef that only asks himself one question each day: “What can I use today to create a treat that will cast a spell on our guests?“

It might be pasture-raised lamb cooked at a low temperature, served with the surprisingly understated aromas of parsnip foam.

Traditional Tafelspitz (premium boiled beef) has long since entered into the pantheon of nouvelle cuisine favourites, comfortably settling into a Julienne bed. And many other Austrian dishes have successfully staked their claim to a place at the international top table. We’re willing to bet that anyone who has a taste for fine food on the strength of all that, will just love Café Central’s award-winning pastries. Nut Kisses, Magic chocolate and all.

Everything organised perfectly, and served elegantly by the excellent in-house-catering team who will cater to your guests’ every whim. For an unforgettable event.

We for you

Cause for celebration!

We operate some of the capital’s finest venues for unforgettable gatherings – from weddings, functions and receptions to formal banquets, impressive presentations and business and lifestyle events. But we also have a close-knit, 100-strong team to offer support and advice and take on all the hard work on your behalf. Exceptional full service for single-source event planning.

Palais Events has all the answers when it comes to hosting unforgettable functions, meetings and celebrations.


Let us take care of the hard work for you!

Planning events, presentations, functions or weddings is – to put it mildly – not always straightforward. Organising guests, spaces, menus, seating, entertainment and accommodation, picking the right technical equipment… and where are the sockets!? The list goes on and on. Let us take all of that out of your hands – just tell us what you are hoping for and we’ll take care of the rest.

Services for your event:

  • Advice on picking the ideal location
  • Custom package
  • Coordination and support courtesy of our team
  • In-house catering
  • Service staff
  • Organising decorations
  • Seating and special furnishings
  • Organising technical equipment
  • Entertainment recommendations

Herrengasse and the Palaisviertel district

Heavenly Herrengasse

Herrengasse has long been the site of some of the capital’s most attractive mansion houses and grand buildings. The street takes its name from the German word “Herren”, a reference to the nobles who built their homes here. After all, the gentry who took up residence on Herrengasse wanted to be as close as possible to the Hofburg and the imperial court. Palais Herberstein, Palais Wilczek, Palais Batthyány, Palais Trauttmansdorff, Palais Daun-Kinsky and of course Palais Ferstel – the home of Café Central – can all be found here. This well-heeled neighbourhood is also referred to locally as the Palaisviertel.

Traffic-calming measures have been introduced on Herrengasse, leaving plenty of space for pedestrians, horse-drawn carriages and public transport.

It is the perfect place to take a stroll and enjoy excellent shopping at stores selling a host of quintessentially Viennese originals.

Ideal location

All of our opulent event locations are in Vienna’s old town, the first district.

Palais Daun-Kinsky, Palais Ferstel and Café Central are all located in the Palaisviertel district centred on Herrengasse.

And the Wiener Börsensäle are located directly on the Ringstrasse boulevard.

St. Stephen’s Cathedral is just a short walk away. Right around the corner is the imperial Hofburg in all its majesty. A few steps further on and you are outside some of the city’s most impressive museums. And before you have a chance to take it all in, you are standing on one of Vienna’s finest shopping streets. In the evenings, your guests can reach the city-centre hotels on foot in no time at all. Our opulent palaces are surrounded by all of these cultural and historic treasures.

In short walking distance:

  • U3 station Herrengasse, U2 station Schottentor
  • 1A, 2A station Herrengasse
  • Underground parking at the Freyung, Votivpark and Börse
  • And Vienna International Airport is just 30 minutes away.
