... high baroque elements decorate the historic Viennese palace from the outside and inside.
Master builder Christian Alexander Oedtl, who was involved in numerous palaces in Vienna, also played an essential role for Palais Windisch-Graetz.
The impressive stucco is a valuable part in the palace’s heart. Tender tendrils form the ceiling stucco in the stairwell and in some of the adjoining rooms on the first and second floors.
