Hofburg Palace

Hofburg Palace is a palace located in Vienna, Austria, that has housed some of the most powerful people in European and Austrian history, including the Habsburg dynasty, rulers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It currently serves as the official residence of the President of Austria. It was the Habsburgs' principal winter residence, as the Schönbrunn Palace was their preferred summer residence.

 

The Hofburg area has been the documented seat of government since 1279 for various empires and republics.[1] The Hofburg has been expanded over the centuries to include various residences (with the Amalienburg), the Imperial Chapel (Hofkapelle or Burgkapelle), the Naturhistorisches Museum and Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Austrian National Library (Hofbibliothek), the Imperial Treasury (Schatzkammer), the Burgtheater, the Spanish Riding School(Hofreitschule), the Imperial Horse Stables (Stallburg and Hofstallungen), and the Hofburg Congress Center.

 

The Hofburg faces the Heldenplatz ordered under the reign of Emperor Francis Joseph, as part of what was to become a Kaiserforum that was never completed.

How to get here

By Public Transportation

Take the U3 or the U2 subway to station Volkstheater and walk down Bellariastrasse towards the inner city. Once you cross the Ringstrasse (Burgring), you are at the Heldenplatz. Or take the local trams #1, #2, #46, #49, #D or the bus #2A to station Dr. Karl Renner Ring which is right next to Heldenplatz.

By Car

As is the case with all concerts that take place in the first district (Innere Stadt), we do not recommend going there by car. The first district is a labyrinth of narrow one-way streets and blind ends and parking is at best difficult, more often impossible. The area is also a pay zone (Kurzparkzone) from Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 22:00 with a maximum parking time of two hours (2.40 € for 2 hours).

There is only one parking garage within walking distance:

Garage Robert Stolz-Platz at Robert Stolz-Platz (€ 3.40 per hour)

By Taxi

Taxis are a reliable and common means to get to your concert. Taxis are usually found at train stations and at taxi stands all over the city. To order one call • 31 300, • 60 160, • 40 100 or • 81 400. Taxis usually do not accept credit cards. Most taxis are non-smoking taxis, order a smoker taxi if you want to smoke during the ride.
