Description:
The Kursalon Wien will provide the historic, beautiful, spectacular and delightful framework for our traditional Gala Dinner and
the "ICCHP - Roland Wagner Award" - ceremony.

Where the Vienna Ring Boulevard meets the green of the City Park, one of the most exclusive and splendid buildings of Vienna was constructed between 1865 - 1867 in the style of the Italian Renaissance: the Kursalon.
It is considered to be one of Vienna's most exclusive and magnificent landmarks.
Situated in the Vienna Stadtpark with its grand terrace leading directly into the urban landscape park, the Kursalon stands out from other historical buildings.
Given its grandeur, beauty, size and appearance, the Kursalon is most suitable and sought after for conventions, balls, product launches, company organizations and other events of that nature nationwide.

In 1857, Emperor Franz Josef I had ordered that the old fortifications should be razed to the ground, and the Ring Boulevard should be built as part of the necessary expansion of the city.
The adjacent 65,000 m² City Park, opened in 1862, was laid out in the style of an English landscaped park to the design of the landscape painter Josef Selleny.
The Kursalon, built according to Johann Garben’s plans, was intended to increase the recreational value of the City Park by offering curative waters to drink. But after its completion in 1867, it soon experienced a change of use: in 1868 the first concert featuring compositions by Johann Strauss took place.
His famous statue is located directly in front of the building.

The Kursalon, with its dances and promenade concerts, rapidly became the meeting place for Viennese society, who celebrated the cult of the waltz and joie de vivre.

Following an elaborate two year renovation, it is our pleasure to be able to present you the legendary Kursalon Wien for this very special occasion.
