The Liechtenstein GARDEN PALACE is a unique Viennese wedding venue, combining the splendor of historical baroque interiors with the natural beauty of its magnificent gardens, all of this right in the Austrian capital city, Vienna, very close to its city center. Just as the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE in the city center, this palace venue is available only for exclusive event hire: from small-scale to large-scale events such as cocktail receptions, gala dinners, concerts, weddings, film- and photo-shoots, lectures, company presentations or seminars. Guided tours of the Princely Collections as part of an event package are an exclusive highlight.

The GARDEN PALACE is simply the perfect choice for couples looking to have part of their wedding celebrations outdoor, surrounded by nature, and at the same time enjoy the comfort and options of a big city. The gardens of the palace are the perfect setting for a marriage ceremony, a cocktail reception, and even a wedding dinner or a pre- or post-wedding event. The Liechtenstein GARDEN PALACE is for sure the setting to dream of for a spectacular ceremony, an elegant royal dinner or a very exclusive party.
