Comments:
Sign number 85 from the "Vienna - the city introduces itself" series of signs, an initiative established in 1956 as part of the Vienna Festival, which shows significant places in the city. The serial number is displayed at the bottom of the sign.
Above the sign are 4 flags of Austria, which is a hallmark of the project, and the possibility of recognizing it from a distance

The "House of Music" was actually established in the 15th century AD, when there were initially 3 houses in the place. In 1805 Archduke Charles, Duke of Teschen bought the building and turned it into a palace.
In 1958 the place became a cultural center and since 2000 it has been used as a "music house" (museum and concert hall) and a museum of the Vienna Philharmonic.
