Atrium with a courtyard

Inspiring with its arcade corridor and open view of the sky.

White marble. Glazed galleries. Magnificent stone columns and vaults. A view of the inner courtyard. Surrounded by illuminated arcade corridors. The courtyard offering a sight of a blue or starry sky. At the very heart of Auersperg Palace there is an extraordinary venue for special occasions: receptions, concerts, fashion shows and thematic presentations.

This is where concert music played for a selected crowd sounds differently. This is where the reception of guests is distinguished by nobleness. This is where steps in a fashion show are provided with a different catwalk. This is where thematic presentations simply gain in significance. On warm summer evenings the inner courtyard transforms into a very special summer auditorium.
