History of the Haus am Schottentor building
When it opened on 16 August 1912, the headquarters of Wiener Bankverein impressed the general public and experts alike. The building was initiated by Anselm von Rothschild and embodies elegance and modernity, while also representing a solid economic foundation. It is a masterpiece of historicism and served as inspiration for many other bank buildings in Vienna and throughout Europe. The two architects, Ernst von Gotthilf and Alexander Neumann, became sought-after experts for new bank buildings.
Due to various mergers and acquisitions, the prestigious space was first home to Creditanstalt-Wiener Bankverein and finally Bank Austria, until the banking operations were discontinued in 2016.
In the intervening years, the property developer PEMA has had the building painstakingly restored. Today, INTERSPAR welcomes visitors to the central banking hall of the architectural gem with a gourmet food market and restaurant.
