Hofburg Vienna – Festival Hall

The Festival Hall is the largest hall in the Hofburg with almost 1.000 m2. Construction began under Emperor Franz Joseph I in 1908 and was completed in 1923.

The impressive ceiling paintings by the painter Schramm show the motto of Emperor Franz Joseph I. “Viribus Unitis” (With united forces). In the lunettes and octagon fields below Eduard Veith and Viktor Stauffer have immortalized personalities from Austrian history.

The Festival Hall was originally planned as a throne room, but was never used in this form because the monarchy ended before its completion.
