Our Service

Cooking up a storm

Based at Palais Ferstel and Café Central, our excellent in-house catering service ensures that every event is a culinary experience to remember

Our Executive Chef is the kind of chef that only asks himself one question each day: “What can I use today to create a treat that will cast a spell on our guests?“

It might be pasture-raised lamb cooked at a low temperature, served with the surprisingly understated aromas of parsnip foam.

Traditional Tafelspitz (premium boiled beef) has long since entered into the pantheon of nouvelle cuisine favourites, comfortably settling into a Julienne bed. And many other Austrian dishes have successfully staked their claim to a place at the international top table. We’re willing to bet that anyone who has a taste for fine food on the strength of all that, will just love Café Central’s award-winning pastries. Nut Kisses, Magic chocolate and all.

Everything organised perfectly, and served elegantly by the excellent in-house-catering team who will cater to your guests’ every whim. For an unforgettable event.

We for you

Cause for celebration!

We operate some of the capital’s finest venues for unforgettable gatherings – from weddings, functions and receptions to formal banquets, impressive presentations and business and lifestyle events. But we also have a close-knit, 100-strong team to offer support and advice and take on all the hard work on your behalf. Exceptional full service for single-source event planning.

Palais Events has all the answers when it comes to hosting unforgettable functions, meetings and celebrations.


Let us take care of the hard work for you!

Planning events, presentations, functions or weddings is – to put it mildly – not always straightforward. Organising guests, spaces, menus, seating, entertainment and accommodation, picking the right technical equipment… and where are the sockets!? The list goes on and on. Let us take all of that out of your hands – just tell us what you are hoping for and we’ll take care of the rest.

Services for your event:

  • Advice on picking the ideal location
  • Custom package
  • Coordination and support courtesy of our team
  • In-house catering
  • Service staff
  • Organising decorations
  • Seating and special furnishings
  • Organising technical equipment
  • Entertainment recommendations
  • Arrangement of suitable partners

Although we offer a wide range of services, we are not in a position to come up with themes and “produce” your events. If you require help with this, event communication, and invitation or registration management we will be more than happy to refer you to a suitable partner.
