That's what I don't like in Vienna

Portal of Neupauer-Breuner palace with coat of arms.


The palace was built in 1715/16 by an unknown master builder. It now houses several companies and is owned by the Metternich family.


The Neupauer-Breuner-Palais is one of the most important buildings of the Viennese Baroque. It resembles the Bartolotti-Partenfeld-Palais in its façade structure (renouncing the order of pilasters and connecting the verticals of window framing of the various storeys [in the manner of Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt], richly decorated portal and balcony) and is a good example of an eclectic mixed style, as it was widely used in the 20s and 30s of the 18th century. The Breuner coat of arms worn by two putti figures above the central window of the main floor was added later.


I dare say this is the kind of architecture that I strongly dislike.
