Staircase

This magnificent baroque staircase leads to the Chancellor's office and state rooms and is dominated by a black wrought iron banister decorated with ornate candelabras.

However, modern art has also found a place. The landing is adorned by "The Little Prince", a work by the famous Austrian sculptor Fritz Wotruba (1907-1975) that was given as a gift to Chancellor Bruno Kreisky (1911-1990) in 1973.

Die darüber befindliche Wandfläche wird zur Präsentation zeitgenössischer Kunstwerke genützt. Sie werden gemeinsam mit fachkundigen Kuratoren sowie den Künstlern ausgewählt und in regelmäßigen Intervallen ausgetauscht.
