More about Palais Schonborn:

Although it is simply called Palais Schonborn by the Viennese, it is actually called Palais Schonborn-Batthyány.
The name can be traced back to the Croatian dignitary and field marshal Adam Graf Batthyány. He acquired the property in 1698 and from 1699 to 1706 today's palace was built according to plans by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach.

Around 1740 it became ...the property of Friedrich Karl von Schönborn. The interior of the building was redesigned and furnished with the furniture and paintings from the Schonborn Garden Palace in Alservorstadt, which also belonged to Schonborn. In 1801 all collections were transferred here from the Garden Palace. Among the paintings was among others "The Blinding of Samson" by Rembrandt. The valuable library contained around 18,000 volumes.

Unfortunately, the palace was badly damaged in the Second World War, but it was restored again by 1960. The Rococo decorations are still preserved in the representative rooms on the first floor. The facade is rich in figural decorations. The building is still owned by the Austrian Schönborn Line from Weyerburg and Göllersdorf.
