Palais Daun-Kinsky information
Built by Hildebrandt in 1716, Palais Kinsky has a classic baroque facade and its highlight is an elaborate three-storey stairway off to the left of the first inner courtyard, with elegant bannisters graced with statues at every turn. The ceiling fresco is a fanciful creation filled with podgy cherubs, bare-breasted beauties and the occasional strongman.
The palace now contains art shops and upmarket restaurants.
