Blauer Chinesischer Salon

Blue Chinese Salon

The Blue Chinese Salon once served as the council chamber of Emperor Franz I Stephan. The Chinese paper wall-hangings with floral motifs on a yellow ground that give the room its name probably date from that time, as does the walnut panelling.

The arrangement of furniture in the style of Louis Seize was reconstructed on the basis of a depiction of this room from the middle of the nineteenth century.

It was here on November 11 1918 that the negotiations were held which led to the renunciation of any further participation in the affairs of government by the last Austrian emperor, Karl I.
The next day the Republic of Austria was proclaimed, thus ending the history of Schönbrunn as an imperial residence.
