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.
