Did you know:

The Lobkowitz Palace was the first important baroque city palace in Vienna and was built under Count Philipp Sigmund von Dietrichstein by Court Engineer Giovanni Pietro Tencalla around 1690 on the site of the former pig market. Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach designed the central projection with the main portal. In 1745 the building was acquired by the Lobkowitz family. The house experienced a special splendour under Prince Franz Joseph Maximilian von Lobkowitz, sponsor and most important patron of the Viennese music and theatre scene of his time. Ludwig van Beethoven, who often played music in the palace, dedicated numerous works to the prince, among them the famous 3rd Symphony composed in 1804; in honour of this the banquet hall today carries the name “Eroica Hall” (ceiling painting: allegory of all the artistic genres by Jacob van Schuppen
