Kohlmarkt 3, Vienna

Kohlmarkt 3 | 1010 Vienna

The Art Nouveau building at Kohlmarkt 3 is a splendid example for baroque revival architecture of the late 19th century. Designed by Karl König, one of Vienna’s most defining architects, it is home to the flagship stores of two global luxury brands today. The surrounding area offers everything you could fancy: history, tradition, luxury, art, culture and coffeehouses. Not to forget businesses, shopping venues, sights and fantastic prospects for successful deals.


As far as quality of living goes, the Austrian capital is not easily outdone by any other metropolis. For the tenth consecutive time, no less, the renowned Mercer Ranking named Vienna the most liveable city in the world. On top of that, the city is governed in smart, sustainable and innovative ways. In international rankings, Vienna has repeatedly topped the list as greenest city, smartest city, or the best place to go for start-ups.

What is more: Vienna has remained affordable for everyone. The educational spectrum and availability of young talent is top notch. The public transportation network is excellent, and the convenience of short distances for pedestrians is ensured by innovative transport concepts and a dense network of local amenities.

Handicap accessibility, shading, greening, and weatherproofing are always encouraged and continuously developed in the urban realm. Vienna is green. Its economy is booming. Its art, culture and history are no doubt unique. Not least, Viennese cuisine is known for pampering any palate.

The Art Nouveau building at Kohlmarkt 3 counts among Vienna’s most prestigious addresses. Here, in the heart of the 1st district, you can feel the commercial and cultural heartbeat of the country’s capital. Together with the streets Graben, Tuchlauben and Hoher Markt, Kohlmarkt is part of the very centre of Vienna.

Located in the immediate vicinity of the Spanish Riding School, it acts as direct connection to the Hofburg Palace. Living and working here means to be surrounded by historical and cultural grandeur with a perfectly bright outlook.


Built in 1895, the mixed residential/commercial building at Kohlmarkt 3 was masterminded by the architect Karl König. He counted among the most prominent late-historicist architects of Vienna, and played a definitive role in shaping the urban landscape.

During the same year, by the way, he built the Mozart monument in the Burggarten park. He became even more influential when appointed as court councillor and rector of the Vienna University of Technology later in life.

Among locals the house at Kohlmarkt 3 is also known as Waldstein-Haus. The optician Simon Waldstein, purveyor to the imperial-royal court, had his business here for many years.

The Art Nouveau building itself is resplendent in its baroque-revival forms. It features a three-storey central oriel window supported by corbels. Curved balconies on either side of the central oriel windows invest the house with a light and dynamic touch.

To this day, the opulent building is used for the very purpose that Karl König had in mind at the time: as luxurious urban residence and as commercial building for exceptional tenants.

This exclusive, late-historicist Art Nouveau house fulfils every dream and expectation you may have for such a prominent address.

The seven upper floors divide into eight high-end units that are accessed via a lovingly maintained historic stairwell.

The modern lift is subtly integrated. It should be added though: Taking the stairs in this house is a visual and architectonic delight.

The prestigious appearance carries over seamlessly into the interiors: high-end parquetry flooring, exquisite plasterwork, ceilings up to four metres tall. In a word: impressive.

Similarly, the technical fit-out leaves virtually nothing to be desired. It represents the technical state of the art, and meets any kind of requirement that you may have for modern residential and working areas.


Kohlmarkt counts among the most exclusive mixed commercial streets in Europe. The rent roll of the house at Kohlmarkt 3 is as extraordinary as the setting in general.

The ground floor, for instance, is occupied by Breitling and Giorgio Armani, two luxury brands of global renown.

The top floors are dominated by prestigious city residences. Out of the roughly 1,900 square metres of effective floor area, more than 1,000 square metres are taken up by central downtown apartments of carefully selected tenants. The few office units and doctors’ surgeries in the building are also occupied by up-market tenants. Incumbent occupiers include a renowned dentist’s office, an investment firm and a biotechnology company. At the bottom line, it adds up to a rock-solid blend. While filled with life, the house offers the necessary tranquillity – and this in middle of the city.
