Unimaginable: along this stretch of pulsating business life, wine grapes were once planted. In the 18th century, Mariahilf was transformed from a village into an important industrial zone. Furthermore, Mariahilfer Strasse expanded into a significant traffic artery and into trans-shipment point number one.
Multi-storey buildings with ostentatious facades changed the face of the street during the construction phase around the turn of the 19th century. Emil Ritter von Förster was an important architect during the period of historicism. The building at Mariahilfer Strasse 97 he erected in 1883 for the record-taking company "Gebrüder Böhm". A "draperies outlet" moved in. The owners were the pioneers Carl Kastner and Hermann Öhler.
Still today the first Viennese shopping street has lost nothing in terms of significance and flair. For us it is an ideal location, right on the very pulse of commerce. Building no. 97 is quite in the proximity of the Westbahnhof train station. The subway station just in front of the building, streetcar and bus lines immediately nearby give it an optimum connection to the public transportation network. Whoever does not want to dispense with a car can count on a secure parking spot in the nearby garage.
During the renovation carried out in 2002 we put emphasis on a yet lighter, more modern look through glass installations. Profiting from this are also the tenants of the business premises, among others Müller's flagship store in Austria. Likewise to be found in the building is the Joint Vienna Institute (JVI).
Hustle and bustle on foot, by bicycle and in the car you can find here, yet also unexpected peace and quiet. Hiding behind the magnificent facades is a marvelous garden plot in the interior courtyard. A short stroll leads to Esterházy Park with its conspicuous flak tower. The Vivarium Vienna domiciled here, in the House of the Sea, invites you to a splendorously colourful world under water.
