The old Casino Zögernitz, with the beautiful garden and the magnificent, sonorous ballroom, was opened on July 21. 1837 and established as a popular venue for the Viennese society.
Personalities of their time, like Carl Michael Ziehrer, Joseph Lanner and even Johann Strauss Father and Son arranged unforgetable balls.
Since 1967 the Strauss-Ballroom was also used for classical music vinyl recordings. For example by Nikolaus Harnoncourt and his „Concentus Musicus“.
The ballroom is now being renovated in close cooperation with the federal monument office. The legendary acoustic, praised by many famous musicians, is being further improved due to accurately planned interventions.
The ballroom is expected to reopen in late 2022.
