In the course of building the city railway in Vienna in the late 1890s, the imperial court pavilion was built in
Hietzing, near castle Schönbrunn, following plans by Otto Wagner. The Jugendstil building with its dome-shaped roof served as a waiting room for the Emperor when he was travelling to Bad Ischl. The rooms and their precious interior décor in Jugenstil design are open to the public and can even be booked for weddings.
