MICE Venue of the Month: Palais Hansen Kempinski

The 5-star Palais Hansen Kempinski offers a modern and luxurious lifestyle in a historic Palais in a cosy and quiet area in the heart of Vienna.

Thanks to its location on the famous Ringstrasse boulevard, the hotel offers the right starting point for business and private travellers. Sights such as St. Stephen’s Cathedral or the Golden Quarter shopping paradise are within walking distance. Customised service combined with Viennese charm provides memorable moments.

At the centre of the Palais is the bright, generously designed lobby which was conceived as an extended living room for guests and is flooded with daylight.

The Event – Exclusive. Personal. Creative.

There are ten function rooms which all offer daylight and can be adapted to the requirements of the event. With a total of almost 1000 square metres, Palais Hansen Kempinski offers the largest area of event facilities in the Viennese luxury hotel industry.

The Theophil ballroom, which is flooded with light through a glass roof, can seat up to 265 people. With its historical column-lined foyer, a testimony to the famous architect Theophil Hansen, the ballroom is the highlight of the event area.

There is the possibility to book the hotel exclusively for your event. You can use the lobby as a dining room or the restaurant as a dance floor – the whole hotel can be a stage for you and your guests.

As every event is only as good as its organisation, there is an all-round-carefree package at Palais Hansen Kempinski. One person will assist in every aspect – from flowers and decoration to music and technical equipment.

Why Palais Hansen Kempinski is the perfect location for you

Every event is different and unique, such as our event planning experts. Each team member is specialised on a particular type of event:

Business Meetings:

In the age of video conferences, Palais Hansen Kempinski recognises the importance of face-to-face meetings as they are no substitute for talking and networking in person.

All meeting rooms offer daylight for more energy and efficiency because good lighting promotes well-being and increases performance during meetings.


A perfect location in the heart of Vienna – easily accessible by public transport, quiet and still close to the bustling city centre with shopping hotspots, restaurants and trendy bars, but also museums, theatres and parks within a few minutes’ walk.

Incentives – igniting business for the better:

Employees are the heart and soul of a company and they deserve recognition for their great work. Rewarded employees work harder and stay longer with a company.

Where you hold your incentive has a big impact on how many people will come, and how easy it will be for everyone to participate. Vienna is the perfect city to meet, famous for its cultural events, imperial sights, coffeehouses, cosy wine taverns, and the very special Viennese charm. For the tenth time in a row in 2019, Vienna has been named the most liveable city worldwide.

Social Events/ Weddings:

Welcoming you with a smile in our Palais, the team will make you feel comfortable and safe, doing everything to create the event of your dreams.

Escape in Style at Palais Hansen Kempinski

At Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna, living history meets modern lifestyle and timeless luxury, which is also reflected in the design of the hotel: historic architecture and neoclassic elements fuse with contemporary interior design and clear colours. The 98 elegant rooms’ and 54 luxury suites’ design merge Vienna’s great past and modern lifestyle and are stylishly and elegantly furnished. Some of them come with a small balcony to enjoy some fresh air. High ceilings create an airy feeling of space and offer unique comfort.

Culinary Delight guaranteed

A combination of breakfast buffet and breakfast à la carte at the restaurant “Die Küche Wien” is, without doubt, the first culinary highlight of the day. The vertical gardens transform the restaurant into a green oasis that invigorates a fresh ambience and atmosphere.

The restaurant is also open for lunch and dinner and offers traditional classics of Viennese cuisine. For guests with a more refined palate, the Alpine and Mediterranean creations at Michelin-starred restaurant “EDVARD” are a must.
