Palais Pallavicini at Josefsplatz, Vienna

Palais Pallavicini is a palace in the Josefsplatz 5, Vienna, Austria. It was owned by the noble Pallavicini family. It was previously built and owned by the Fries family and is therefore also known as Palais Fries.

The palace was constructed in 1784 by Johann Friedrich Hetzendorf von Hohenberg in a Neoclassical style. The interior rooms are richly gilded and decorated with stucco, crystal mirrors and chandeliers. The richly lain-in parquet floor is made out of expensive woods.

Popular culture[edit]

The Palais Pallavicini was used in the 1949 film The Third Man as the location for Harry Lime's apartment [1] and was also used in the 2013 film The Best Offer as the location of Virgin Oldman's apartment.
