Description of Academy of Sciences

Academy of Sciences or Akademie der Wissenschaften is part of the historic Old University of Vienna. This magnificent building with a beautiful Baroque facade was designated in 1753 by architect Jean Nicolas Jadot de Villey- Issey. One of the most notable rooms in the Academy of Sciences is Aula or the Great Hall. Another notable room is the Ceremonial Hall. Famous composer Haydn performed his Creation in this hall for the first time in 1808 shortly before he died a year later. It was the last time people saw famous composer in public.
