This history of The Hamerling
The Hamerling – like Hamerlingplatz and the adjacent 6,000 m2 park – owes its name to the Austrian writer and poet Robert Hamerling. He was amongst the most-read German-language authors of his time at the end of the 19th century.
However, The Hamerling itself also wrote history. Built around the turn of the last century, The Hamerling was originally home to the Imperial and Royal Cartographical Institute. Its typical Gründerzeit elegance and the monumental architecture are still clearly evident today in this modernised showcase project.
