ECIR 2015 Conference Dinner at the Palais Niederoesterreich

The Palais Niederösterreich combines tradition and history with all of the latest technological requirements in a perfect and harmonious manner. The Landhaus was lovingly restored from 2002 to 2004 as a listed monument.

Palais Niederösterreich, historically known as the Niederösterreichisches Landeshaus (‘Estates House of Lower Austria), is a historical building in Vienna. The building housed the estates general of the state of Lower Austria until 1848. After 1861, the state assembly and some state government ministries occupied it until 1997, when St. Pölten fully took on the role of the new capital of Lower Austria. In the revolution of March 1848, the Niederösterreichisches Landeshaus played an important role as the focal point of the revolutionary forces. The uprising was subsequently crushed by the military. In 1918 it was the seat of the parliament of the new Republic of German Austria.

Palais Niederösterreich opened its doors in May 2005 and is now a highly attractive event venue for up to 676 persons in the heart of Vienna.
