New Management

Gabriela Ogoralek is new Managing Director of
Liechtenstein Real Estate Vienna


At the beginning of May 2024, Gabriela Ogoralek took over as Managing Director of Liechtenstein Group AG Real Estate Vienna. This includes the Liechtenstein Garden Palace and the City Palace, two of Vienna's most exclusive event venues. She succeeds Director Erich Urban, who is retiring after 36 years with the company. Since the beginning of 2024, Gabriela Ogoralek had served as Erich Urban's deputy. Prior to that, she led the Event Management & Marketing division for both Liechtenstein Palaces for over two years.

Gabriela Ogoralek has been part of the event management team since 2014. With the transition to the management of Liechtenstein Real Estate Vienna, she and her team of around 30 people are responsible for the administration and leasing of all Liechtenstein Group real estate in Vienna, as well as for the cultural and event operations of the Liechtenstein Garden Palace (9th district) and the City Palace (1st district). In addition to the two palaces, Liechtenstein Real Estate includes the Alserbach Palace (9th district), two houses in Porzellangasse (9th district), and the former Herzoglich Savoyen’sche Damenstift in Johannesgasse (1st district) (a total of around 29,000 m2 of usable space, of which around 8,000 m2 is event and exhibition space).

"I am very much looking forward to the new task of managing the largely historic buildings. In the Liechtenstein Group, we think across generations. This means that we need long-term and sustainable usage concepts for the properties that take the historical substance of the building into account. At the same time, the buildings need to be made fit for the future, for example when it comes to using technology and renewable energy. For all these exciting challenges, I have a great, dedicated team by my side and a predecessor in Erich Urban, who made the business what it is today through his great commitment over many years," said Gabriela Ogoralek.

Erich Urban had been working for the Foundation Prince Liechtenstein since 1988, and in 1995 he took over the management of the property administration of several properties in Vienna, including the two Liechtenstein Palaces. In 2020, the restructuring into iechtenstein Group AG Real Estate Vienna took place, which Urban headed until April 2024, after which he is now retiring after 36 years with the company.
