Dear friends of HOFBURG Vienna,

A passion for excellence, providing room for ideas to flourish and bringing them to life with our customers will always be the USP we live by at this unique international congress and event centre in the heart of Vienna. And so that our customers can envision how their individual event concept could play out, we introduced a new 360° presentation of our state rooms a short time ago. We have also redesigned our website, – see the state rooms from a new angle.

The HOFBURG Vienna knows how to celebrate: 50 years of Wiener Kongresszentrum Hofburg Betriebsges.m.b.H. Transferring the venue to private management in 1969 proved a key moment on Vienna’s way to becoming the high-profile congress destination it is today, and the inauguration of the HOFBURG Silvesterball in the same year launched one of the city’s New Year’s Eve highlights.

The final touches are already being put to the gala programme and culinary treats in store for the 50th anniversary ball on 31 December 2019. Celebrate a magical night with us.

Yours sincerely,
The Hofburg Vienna team

Alexandra Kaszay
Managing Director

A different angle

360° Panorama

Customer expectations are constantly shifting, and our venue always moves with the times. Digitalisation in a historic setting highlights the venue’s versatility. The recently launched 360° presentation of the Hofburg state rooms includes a range of different set ups for innovative event formats. And the website redesign presents the venue from a different angle.

Events in autumn 2019


While numerous scientific congresses were held at the venue in the first half of 2019, the second half of the year will feature a mix of exhibitions and specialist conferences. Around 320,000 participants attend events hosted at the HOFBURG Vienna each year.

Time to Celebrate

50th anniversary

In 1969 responsibility for operating a former imperial residence – with a history stretching back over 700 years – as a multipurpose event centre was conferred on Wiener Kongresszentrum Hofburg Betriebsges.m.b.H. In 2019 its present day management team will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the HOFBURG Silvesterball, revealing its vision for the future.

Strong demand

Highlights of 2020

The HOBURG Vienna’s calendar is already shaping up very nicely for 2020. There is a distinct trend towards more complex events, with ever greater demands being placed on technical infrastructure and a significantly more international mix when it comes to participants.
