Palais Wenkheim

Webster Vienna Private University is located in the beautiful Palais Wenkheim conveniently located in Vienna's second district (Praterstrasse 23), just a few steps away from the city center. Built in 1826, the neoclassical building features tremendous architectural detailing, both interior and exterior. The building was completely renovated and transformed into a modern site for academic and operational excellence in 2014 (photo documentation of the renovations can be viewed here).
