Palais Kinsky

Kinsky Palace in the city center was commissioned by Count Wirich Philipp von Daun, the construction started in 1717 under the direction of Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt, a famous baroque architect. In 1784 the palace was sold to the Bohemian Kinsky family, therefore it's also known as "Palais Daun-Kinsky".
