House of Strauss Vienna

A Museum for the Waltz Kings

The Gartenpalais Zögernitz, a true jewel of Viennese architecture, has been captivating since its opening on July 21, 1837, with its picturesque garden and impressive ballroom. It quickly became a central meeting point for Vienna’s high society and has hosted many illustrious guests and events over the years. Celebrities such as Carl Michael Ziehrer, Joseph Lanner, and even Johann Strauss Sr. and Jr. have held unforgettable balls within these historic walls, capturing the hearts of the people of Vienna.

After a careful and comprehensive renovation completed in 2022, the palace now stands in all its glory. With great attention to detail, the historical substance was preserved and state-of-the-art technology integrated to offer visitors a unique experience. The palace has once again established itself as a premier event venue, regularly hosting cultural, musical, and social events.

The new interactive museum “House of Strauss” in Vienna’s 19th district, Döbling, unfolds in the original and meticulously restored spaces of Casino Zögernitz. In this interactive, audio-visual experience, on 2.000 m², visitors accompany the Strauss family through the entire 19th century, through social upheaval and the industrial revolution, from the booming capital of music to the whole world – and witness the creation of music for eternity.
