Fodor's Review

Just one of the architectural treasures that comprise the urban set piece of the Freyung, the Palais Kinsky is the square's best-known palace, and is one of the most sophisticated pieces of baroque architecture in the whole city. Built between 1713 and 1716 by Hildebrandt, it now houses Wiener Kunst Auktionen, a public-auction business offering artworks and antiques. If there's an auction viewing, try to see the palace's spectacular 18th-century staircase, all marble goddesses and crowned with a trompe-l'oeil ceiling painted by Marcantonio Chiarini.
