Wien, 1. Bezirk, Art of Facades of Vienna (Coburgbastei) – Palais Coburg

Wien, 1. Bezirk, Art of Facades of Vienna (Coburgbastei) - Palais Coburg

Palais Coburg
At the site of today’s Palais Coburg were in the 18th Century several buildings, which like almost all buildings that were built on the city walls or leaning on these, were of a military nature. So here was situated the Stadt-Schultheissen Office (Wikipedia: In medieval Germany, the Schultheiß (Middle High German schultheize, from Old High German sculdheizo; Latinised as scultetus or sculteus; in Switzerland: Schultheiss, also: Schultheis, Schulte or Schulze; in Italian the two offices Scoltetto and Sculdascio, Medieval Latin sculdasius and Polish Sołtys) was the head of a municipality (akin to today’s office of mayor), a Vogt or an executive official of the ruler), which was the seat of the respective city commander. Here lived and died in 1766 Field Marshal Leopold Josef Graf Daun. His successor as resident, Field Marshal Franz Moritz Graf Lacy, succeeded to acquire the building of the Imperial Court Chamber. He changed the city commandant’s house into the Palais Lacy and inhabited this until his death in 1801. His nephew and heir sold the building in the same year to the Hungarian Count Franz Joseph Koháry. This one could in 1812 also acquire a neighboring house. The Kohárys were among the wealthiest landowners in Hungary. Franz Joseph’s daughter Gabriele Maria Antonia married in 1816 Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. Since the marriage between a prince and a countess was not befitting one’s social status, much trouble and especially money had to be expended in order to raise the family Koháry, 1817, but retroactive to 1815 in the rank of prince. To document this rise in rank, they began with measures to develop the still modest palace. Prince Franz Joseph Koháry inhabited it hardly, however, since he lived mainly in Oroszvár south of Bratislava. When he died in 1826, his Viennese palace was still not very representative .
His daughter inherited it and rented it for the moment to Countess Cordelia Potocki. Through the Kohárysche heritage, to which belonged ore mines and steel plants and large agricultural estates in Hungary and the Slovakia of today, the family Coburg, which called itself since 1825 Dukes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, could finally think of the construction of a befitting palace. She lived then in later Palais Archduke Karl Ludwig in the Favoritenstraße. The appreciation of the family through Victoria’s accession to the throne in England made a representative place to stay of the Viennese branch of the family appear urgent. Duke Ferdinand had in the years 1843 to 1847 instead of the existing buildings, that ist, at the access of the side facing the city to Braunbastei, built a great palace. His son August Ludwig had 1843 married Princess Clementine of Orleans Bourbon, daughter of the French citizen king Louis-Philippe, and determined the building to his Viennese home. The architect was Karl Schleps. For the execution of his plans responsible was Adolf Korompay. Karl Schleps had the plans yet submitted in 1839, but he passed away as early as next year. He was succeeded by his former assistant Franz Neumann. With Philip Menning another architect was hired, so it is not clear today which architect what share of the palace has. To extend the construction site, some adjacent properties, as the Croats Dörfl (Kroatendörfl) were purchased. The architecture is a blend of classicism and historicism and clearly reflects those change in the architecture, which took place at this time. But for the moment followed no interior expansion, because Louis-Philippe demanded that his grandson in France should enter this world and the ducal couple moved to Paris. In 1849 that part of the palace, which is on the Seilerstaette, was largely transformed into an apartment building, designed by Franz Neumann. Yet three years earlier, Baron Sina wanted it to acquire and here housing the stock exchange and the Wechselgericht (competend in exchange disputes), but those plans had dashed.
Resided in 1851 the English ambassador to Austria, Lieutenant General John Fane, as a tenant here. Johann Strauss served him for its festivals as music director. 1852 the Palais was also inside ready to move in and Herzog August Ludwig was able to return to Vienna. After the Braunbastei 1863 was demolished, arose the classicist garden facade. Just before the turn of the century resided Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria, who stemmed from the family of Coburg, in his Vienna stays in the palace. During World War II, the right part of the portico was hit by a bomb. Thereby also two figures of the Attica went lost. During occupation time Russian soldiers were intitially quartered in the palace. Plans to demolish the palace and build in its place a hotel, were fortunately not realized. After this for a long the Directorate General of Austrian Federal Railways was occupying the building as tenant. 1978 sold Princess Sarah Aurelia of Saxe-Coburg the Palais to a real estate broker. Restoration plans came to a nothing for the moment again and again for financial reasons. Currently, the building belongs to a private foundation under German investor Peter Pühringer. Since 2000 it was subjected to a comprehensive refurbishment. Here two years ago one of the finest luxury hotels in the city with excellent restaurants was put into operation. In addition, there are a number of homes and offices in the vast complex of buildings. The originally planned shopping mall was not realized.
Casemates. But although the palace does not just lie at the ring road, the owner has for himself the free outlook in the city park by a servitude secured, that has been preserved until today. While the Bastion side remembers aristocratic country houses such as Castle Liechtenstein at Maria Enzersdorf or the former Weilburg in Baden, the Seilerstaette-front is more as a bourgeois apartment building designed. Attractive visual appearance is the to the ring turned 21-axis garden facade. It is characterized by the two-storey columns order which has the Palais soon led in common parlance to the name "asparagus Castle" after its establishment. The facades of the palace namely does not show the with Viennese palais common colossal order in which multiple floors are aggregated by giant pilasters or giant pillars. Here the walls are structured by Ionic columns. On whose entablature have been put Corinthian columns. Behind the pillars of the seven-axis central risalit lie open loggias in the two upper floors. They were originally connected by staircases on both sides of the garden. As this had to be re-created in 1864 due to the razing of the bastions, the Attica area has been redesigned. Franz Neumann and Leopold Mayer placed here figures, representing the personifications of music, hunting, strength, history, science, agriculture and flower care. It’s due to the construction of the palace on the Braunbastei that parts of the Renaissance fortifications of Vienna have been preserved, most of all, the of brick masonry consisting casemates. They are located directly below the palace and were made available again in the last renovation in 2003. In this case , however, the ramp leading to the bastion was destroyed.
Ball room. The late classicist road tract at the Seilerstaette is the a little older part of the building. Since we have got to deal was a narrow downtown alley, the facade at the Seilerstaette is relatively flat structured. Due to the level difference to the bastion it has a considerable height. In the two-story base zone three large banded arched portals are inserted. The windows of the upper floors are designed differently (round arch pediment, not crowns). The central projection is superimposed a shallow three-storey loggia. Franz Neumann Younger created about 1880 the strict historical front building at the Coburggasse. It is organized by risalits and presents an attic parapet. The here located portal is provided with seashell decor. From the Seilerstaette one enters the palace through a two-story vestibule that leads to the magnificent staircase. It is supported by Ionic columns. Large decorative vases stand on pedestals. The piano nobile is a remarkable space ensemble of late Classicism and early-Baroque. Of its equipment only the to the wall fixed parts remained preserved because after the Second World War much of the furniture was sold. The inlaid parquet floors have been replaced for the most part in 2001. The in the center located ballroom is a with stucco marble overlayed room decorated with stuccoed volutes. Gilded mirror frames and wall lights complete the equipment. It is lit by a glass ceiling. Interesting is the family room or Green Salon. Here hang numerous portraits of members of the Coburg family, including those in the 19th Century as kings or dukes reigning different European countries (Belgium, Portugal, Bulgaria, England). The Blue Salon is decorated with full-length pictures of the inner family circle of the palace residents. They stem from Franz Xaver Winterhalter and from those workshop. Neo-Baroque is also the Yellow Salon Over the three doors hold stucco figures the coat of arms of Coburg and Orleans.
