The Kaiserbruendl has an impressive history covering several centuries. ROMAN ORIGIN  The Kaiserbründl (formerly 'Centralbad') is generally regarded as the oldest and most distinguished bathing-establishment in Vienna. The unusually deep well of the building itself was already in use in Roman times for the small fortification at a bridge (proven through the discovery of coins dating back to the emperors Heliogabalus and Alexander Severus). This building structure, later known as 'Weihenpurgkh', formed part of a separate fortified small suburb outside Vienna until 1156. IMPERIAL GUESTS In the middle ages this area was the centre for textiles ('der alte Ramhof'), the first document mentioni 'padstubn' ('bathing room') in this house dates back to 1368. During the 19th century the Centralbad (then the only bath in the city centre) gained its greatest social reputation. Among its regular guests was a.o. the Archduke Ludwig Victor, a brother of the emperor Franz Joseph I, who was famous for his love for beauty. NEW NAME  In remembrance of the visits of imperial majesties, i.e.: Franz Joseph (12.08.1873), Don Pedro II (13.03.1877) and Nasir-ad-Din (08. and 13.07.1878) the Centralbad was renamed into “Kaiserbründl”. CONSERVATIONAL UNDERTAKINGS AND REBUILDING  Between 1887 - 1891, the house was rebuilt by the famous Viennese architect and city master builder Anton Honus and gained its present look. After a period of stagnation following world war II, the Kaiserbründl experiences now - at the dawn of the third millennium - a new revival, which can be witnessed through its elaborate renovations and extensions. SOCIETAS CONSPIRANTI HELIOGABALI  Here, the 'Societas Conspirantium Heliogabali', in a way the 'Dombauhütte' (following the church masons' build) of the Kaiserbründl, contributed significantly to the changes, by aiming at transforming it into the underground temple to the sun of Hermesa, in order to fulfill the Divinatio Heliogabali after an interruption of 1777 years.
