The Liechtenstein Palace is pursuing a change of direction. At the end of 2011, the garden palace in Vienna's ninth district ceased opening to the public at fixed times. The permanent exhibition and the continuing program of temporary exhibitions can now be viewed by pre-booked groups only, with the palace refocusing on events and guided tours of the princely collections. As part of the changes, Restaurant Rubens in the garden palace has closed.
The Liechtenstein city palace in the first district is undergoing comprehensive renovation, and will exhibit key classical and Biedermeier works from the princely collections. Once renovation work is complete, the city palace, in tandem with the garden palace, will only be open for special events and group bookings. Palace rooms can be booked for events from 2013. Both palaces will still open their doors to the public at large for the Long Night of the Museums (every year at the beginning of October).
