The Conference Center Laxenburg (located in
Vienna-Laxenburg) combines imperial elegance with
a comfortable atmosphere and a modern touch.
Extraordinary conferences can be organized in an
exclusive atmosphere, where once Empress Maria
Theresia and her court enjoyed theater performances
and culinary delights and where the Habsburgs
celebrated their numerous occasions. Even the
generals held their conferences in today's state and
function rooms. Important decisions regarding
Europe's history have been pronounced here. The
Palace Theater and the dining wing were built in
1753, following designs by Nicolo Pacassi. The dining
wing is located where the former Sinzendorf house
stood and belonged to the Imperial family from
around 1756 onwards. Inside, the "Ovaler Saal" (Oval
Hall) has an impressive ceiling fresco by Vinzenz
Fischer showing "putti hunting with falcons" and the
walls have architectural paintings. With the
renovation of the derelict palace in 1980 by the
Republic of Austria and the provinces of Vienna and
Lower Austria, the theater was turned into a unique
conference center. The facade facing the park
entrance has a high portico with curved gable and its
walls are partially decorated with sunk panels as well
as raised panels. Inside, some paintings of illusionist
architecture in the auditorium remain from the late
Baroque period. In Maria TheresiaÕs time many
people from Emperors to simple folk, came to
Laxenburg Palace in order to meet or take part in
events. For centuries, along with Schšnbrunn and the
Hofburg, Laxenburg was the most important domicile
of the Habsburgs. The Conference Center Laxenburg
has been fully renovated and appears in a new light
since 2008.

Some historic details about the rooms:
Theatersaal
Empress Maria Theresia had it built in 1753. Theater ensembles from Austria, France and Italy presented their newest
plays here. And today the Theatersaal experiences a Renaissance because more and more cultural events and
professional meetings take place in the splendid surrounding.
Ovaler Saal
This baroque room was the former dining room of the Empress. The wall paintings and the old wood floors were
completely restored. In summer the room can be opened up and joins the marble terrace and the palace park, creating a
one-of-a-kind ambiance and atmosphere. The room can be used for exhibitions, meetings and grand dinners.
Kaminzimmer fire place room)
In the old times this room was called the Chinese Room. It was quite fashionable in the 18th century to have "themed"
rooms like this in palaces and to fill them with art and curiosities from the chosen country. The room was renovated up
to today's standards and received a wood floor. The decorative, historic tile stove completes the elegant setting.
