The Kursalon, or Kursalon Hübner, is a concert hall built on the site of old fortress walls. As early as 1857, Emperor Franz Joseph made the decision for a comprehensive reorganization of Vienna's transportation. The fortress walls were dismantled, and the newly opened, broad space began to be developed with wide boulevards. This period marked a golden age for architects and builders, giving rise to the modern avenues of Vienna.

Among the many attractions, the city park was inaugurated in 1862, featuring a spa facility that offered mineral waters from all corners of the empire. On October 15, 1868, Johann Strauss held his first concert here, and since then, the fate of the structure has been inseparably linked to concerts and performances. In 1908, Kursalon was leased to Hans Hübner, leading to the adoption of its new name. Almost 90 years later, in 1990, the Hübner family acquired the building from the city administration, turning it into private ownership.

Vienna. The Ringstrasse.

A leisurely stroll through the historic part of the city unfolds a tapestry of enchanting landmarks. The city park, adorned with the melodies of Strauss and Schubert, leads to the venerable city gates named after Luger and Mozart. The narrative of "Ah, My Sweet Augustine" echoes through time, while the oldest church in the city stands as a testament to bygone eras. The tales of Theodor Herzl, the anchor clocks, the Jewish quarter, the square where it all began, the longest narrow alley, the Estergazi restaurant, and Andersen's house weave together seamlessly.

Wander down Graben Street, passing by the plague column and fountains, where the stories of homes, people, words, legends, and traditions blend harmoniously. Amidst it all, relish the charm of restaurants, cafes, wines, and coziness that add an extra layer of warmth to this rich tapestry of history and culture.
