Description 

The Palm House is located on the site of the former Dutch botanical gardens. Commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph I, it was constructed by the engineer Ignaz Gridl between 1881 and 1882 according to plans by the court architect Franz Xaver Segenschmid. Measuring 111m in length, the structure comprises a 28m-high central pavilion and two lower side pavilions, which together provide three different climate zones – a cold house in the north, a temperate Mediterranean zone in the central pavilion, and the tropical house in the south. The permanent beds and the temporary seasonal plant displays present outstanding examples from the Federal Gardens’ plant collections.
