      In 1814 and 1815 the building on Ballhausplatz experienced one of its finest hours when it became the hub of European political activity. Following the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte, monarchs and diplomats from some 200 European states, provinces and cities flocked to Vienna in late summer 1814 to reorganise the distribution of power in Europe. The "coachman of Europe", the Austrian Foreign Minister Clemens Wenzel Prince Metternich, took the lead role.
