VIENNA’S NEW MEETING HUB
The new meeting location Weitsicht Cobenzl comes with magnificent views of Vienna. And event organisers have the pick of no less than three buildings, each offering multiple rooms.
The Cobenzl is one of Vienna’s landmark hills and a popular destination for excursions. in mid-September 2022, Weitsicht Cobenzl opened here, adding a spectacular new meeting location for events of all kinds. The new venue is an ensemble of existing and newly constructed buildings, all now fitted with state-of-the-art meeting technology. Rooms for meetings and events can be booked in three buildings, which are located in an idyllic spot, nestled deep in the vineyards that frame Vienna’s outskirts. All rooms have sensational long-distance views of Vienna.
Where Old Meets New
The newly built Panoramahaus building comprises three light-flooded rooms on three levels. Each level comes with its own spacious terrace, which is perfect for break times. At 80 square meters, the top gallery level can accommodate up to 100 people and has a giant 400-square-meter terrace. Below, on the middle floor, the Panoramaloft has a maximum capacity of 300. On the lowest level, the Garden Salon can host up to 160 guests. The rooms, which can be booked individually or all together, are barrier-free and equipped with state-of-the-art event technology. Reception desks and break areas are available on each level.
Refurbished from the ground up, Schloss Cobenzl is back to its original best with an impressive domed hall for up to 400 people. Highlights include its luxe chandeliers and a stage. As with the other rooms in the Panoramahaus, the doors to the hall can be opened up to incorporate a spacious terrace into the space. Schloss Cobenzl can be booked as part of a package including all or some of the rooms in the Panoramahaus.
The third building in the ensemble and another part of the original estate, the Meierei was fully renovated during the project. It contains a pair of salons for up to 60 people each, making them the ideal choice for smaller-scale discussions, seminars and meetings. The two rooms can also be combined.
Weitsicht Cobenzl is operated by restaurateur and entrepreneur Bernd Schlacher, whose Motto group already runs several restaurants (Motto am Fluss, Chez Bernard) and the Motto Hotel in the city. Motto subsidiary Motto Catering also supplies a number of the capital’s most prestigious meeting venues including the Austria Center Vienna.
Ample parking is available at Weitsicht Cobenzl, and it is well-served by public transport. The 38A runs directly from the U4 Heiligenstadt station to the front door at intervals of just 7 minutes at peak times.
