The Kunsthistoriches Museum, designed by Gottfried Semper
and Carl von Hasenauer, was not completed until 1891. The
Suhnhof Building was built on the site of the Ring Theatre,
which had been destroyed during a tragic fire in December
1881, during Offenbach’s opera The Tales of Hoffman, with the
loss of between 620 and 850 lives. This building, in turn, was
destroyed when Vienna was bombed during World War II and
now the site is a Police Station.
