Meetings in an ambience steeped in history
Do you need a multifaceted setting for your next jour fixe? Can your upcoming corporate event be slightly more out of the ordinary? Here’s our recommendation: Meetings in the Kasematten Wiener Neustadt. That’s because business trips to this location are guaranteed to make an indelible impression on your team. As soon as you arrive, the architectural jewel from the 12th century with its historic vaults and modern annex will immediately put a spell on you, sparking off a myriad of creative and brilliant ideas for fully scribbled mind maps. The capacity limits for the different areas range from 20 to 900 persons. You and your core team can put your thinking caps on for brainstorming sessions or organise a large event for the entire company and customers in southern Lower Austria.
Bygone times meet modern events
Seminars, workshops, dinners, incentives or team-building events on a smaller scale are just as easy to hold in the casemates in Wiener Neustadt as trade fairs, congresses or celebrations for the whole company. The venue welcomes all agencies and guests from different industries – the pharmaceutical to the financial sectors, as well as the tourism industry – to venture behind its historic façades, which are reminiscent of the old days and the original function of the fortification. Meet in this historically unique fortress situated in the middle of the city park. Drum your team together and make use of the three separately accessible and barrier-free meeting rooms, which allow for a total capacity of up to 900 people. In the Neue Bastei, the largest vaulted hall measuring 481-square-metres, you can accommodate 440 guests at the same time with cocktail-style seating. Standing and in a theatre-style seating arrangement, the room holds 438 participants. Your tried and tested modus operandi for meetings is the banquet-style seating layout? 396 pairs of eyes and ears will then follow your presentations. As a classroom, the space accommodates 260 people and in a U-shaped style, you sit together with 94 guests.
From vault to fresh air: flexible event location that fulfils all requirements
The unusual location may date back to the 12th century and be reminiscent of old times, but inside the casemates modern MICE dreams come true: flip charts, pin boards, projectors as well as screens all ensure that everyone present is equally well informed. Microphones, audio systems, a stage and podium allow you to reach even the very back rows. Or, if the weather is great, move your event outside – the high-end equipment also makes it possible to hold events in the open. If your guests (or just some of them) are prevented from attending on-site, the venue allows for hybrid events, too. This gives you the opportunity to hold your face-to-face and online event simultaneously. An experienced technical team will assist you so that you hold perfect presentations with adequate sound design. What else is at your disposal? During your event the catering kitchen from the in-house restaurant Das Tscherte will pamper you with invigorating delicacies. And after the event, spend the night in one of the 133 rooms in the adjacent four-star Hilton Garden Inn.
Let the surroundings inspire you
Is your thirst for knowledge not yet satisfied after all the workshops, presentations, and so on? Then just continue getting inspired whilst you’re here: The permanent exhibition “The City as a Fortress” merges the history of Wiener Neustadt with modern technology. Learn how the eventful history of the casemates transformed over the centuries with the help of entertaining and informative films. The connection to the past is also noticeable in the location's trophy collection: The Slovenian architecture company Bevk Perovic received the renowned “Piranesi Award” in 2020 for designing the casemates. Not only the venue itself is excellent, but also the public transport network to reach it. It's a five-minute walk from the train station and 30 minutes by train from Vienna to the event venue in the green city park. Speaking of green: the Kasematten are not only located in the midst of a magnificent natural setting, but they also boast green event certification making it a sustainable event location. Experience total harmony with nature when you ride on the nearby Salamander train. This takes you very comfortably from Puchberg up to the 2,075-metre-high Schneeberg for heavenly views over the Viennese Alps.
