Located within Vienna’s historic centre, directly on Vienna’s Ringstrasse boulevard, the Main Building of the University of Vienna is easy to reach. The building, designed by Heinrich Ferstel, was built Italian Renaissance style and was inaugurated in 1884. In the heart of the Main Building is the green Arcaded Courtyard. In the middle of the Courtyard, you can find the Castalia fountain, which is surrounded by the Arcaded Courtyard’s walkways with their numerous busts and monuments.

Several event rooms as well as a wide range of lecture halls offering a unique and historical university setting are available for events during periods when there are no classes or exams.
