Burghauptmannschaft Oesterreich - what is it?
Burghauptmannschaft Oesterreich (BHOe) is a subordinate agency of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs and a legal entity. She is owner of around 110 historically significant buildings and monuments throughout Austria, including Imperial Palace Vienna, Belvedere Palace as the former summer residence of Prince Eugene of Savoy and Imperial Palace Innsbruck. BHOe is responsible for the appropriate use and maintenance of these memorable buildings.
In addition to the core task of maintaining built heritage in the best possible way, Burghauptmannschaft Oesterreich has initiated, accompanied and carried out various (EU-) projects since 2013. As a result, important issues such as further training in the field of maintenance of historic buildings could be tackled and implemented.
In addition to EU projects, Burghauptmannschaft also allowed other innovative ideas and artistic expression to prosper, which resulted in diverse and exciting synergies.
