Palais Ferstel

A piece of Italy in the heart of Vienna.


Wherever I'm in a new place, rambling (stumbling?) after the sunset and being lured by lit-up pretty buildings like bugs is one of my habits. Italian-flavored building located in the heart of Austria capital, Vienna caught my attention.

Palais Ferstel is named after Austrian architect, Heinrich von Ferstel (1828-1883), who built the opulent Palais Ferstel in the Venetian/Florentine trecento style. When it's built, it was the most modern style building in the capital where national bank and the stock exchange had been resided.





Now the "old-fashioned" building attracts tourists with it's stunning view and is regarded as a place to dine out and enjoy booze in this amazing atmosphere.
