Palais Kaufmännischer Verein: Tradition since 1898
The Palais Kaufmännischer Verein events center opened in 1898, in a prominent location in the heart of Linz. The building boasts luxuriously fitted halls and rooms for ten to 1,800 people alongside office spaces, which were originally used as the seat of the Chamber of Commerce. The stylish Baroque interior has been equipped with cutting-edge congress technology and can now accommodate all manner of prestigious events in the city. Thanks to its outstanding infrastructure and position in the state capital, the Palais Kaufmännischer Verein enjoys recognition across Upper Austria. It provides the perfect venue for events such as academic congresses, the famous glittering black-and-white balls, or even a baronial wedding.
"In arte voluptas", in art there is pleasure
As the original tenants, the local men's Schlaraffia continues to use rooms in the Palais Kaufmännischer Verein to this day. The Latin motto of the international association, whose declared goal is to uphold friendship, art and humor, can also be applied as the motto for the area in general: "In arte voluptas," in art there is pleasure. Within the building, itself steeped in tradition, the artistic design of the Baroque halls creates a celebratory atmosphere for all kinds of events in Linz, and contributes to their success. Meticulous preparation, professional organization and the provision of food and drink upon request leave nothing to be desired, ensuring that guests are free to dedicate themselves entirely to enjoying their festivities in Linz.
