summer building for the Viennese merchant

Geymüller Schlössl

Loving Vienna’s sightseeing points with all the clichés, there are some I love more. One of them is a Biedermeier gem, which can only be visited during the summer months.

The Geymüllerschlössl (Mautner Villa)

If you have visitors from out of town, this is the place to go, combined with a dinner at a Heurige in the area of Poetzleinsdorf. It is a magical place for extended walks, lovers of  history of architecture and interior design and timepiece collectors.

At my first visit in 2005 I was not less impressed by the modern installation outside the building in the 7500sqm big park. The american artist James Turrel installed the permanent skyspace „The Other Horizon“, which examined the interaction between space and the color by the medium light. Inside the cubus you could sit on benches along the edge to view the sky through an opening in the roof.

The Geymüllerschlössel in Pötzleinsdorf, a neighborhood in Vienna’s suburban outskirts, was put up after 1808 as a “summer building” for the Viennese merchant and banker Johann Jakob Geymüller (1760–1834). Today, it is one of the few places in Austria offering an authentically original look at the diversity of Biedermeier decorative art. (read more: mak.at)
