For auction: One Vienna palace

August 29, 2008 |  7:00 am

Palace, anyone?

There's nothing like a little looky-looing to set the tone for a long weekend. But if your schedule won't allow for a jaunt to Vienna, then take a quick peek here at the 300-year-old Palais Auersperg.

Front_8 Located in the middle of town, the Baroque palace is near museums and the opera, has a view of the Parliament building and includes its own park.

A picture being worth a thousand words, on amenities let's just say: yes. No firm price is set, but 33 million euros is suggested as a point of reference. A quick conversion on a calculator clocks that at more than $48 million.

In a buying mood? Don't worry about getting the paperwork from afar and translating forms. According to Stiller & Hohla Immobilien -- Real Estate, "a precisely structured bidding process" will put investors around the world on equal footing to snap it up.
