The Teacher's Association, founded in 1885, is the owner of the "Lehrerhaus" (Teacher's House of Vienna), a corner building, linked with the Lange Gasse and the Josefsgasse. Financed by Donations and by the former Austrian Monarchie, the "Lehrerhhaus" was opened in 1906 under the Patronage of Emperor Franz Josef. The Opening Ceremony was held on the 14th. of May 1906 by the Archduke Friedrich, the Lord Mayor of Vienna and an audience of the Viennese High Society. Since the Old Days of 1906, the "Lehrerhaus" is a Representation of the Interests of The Austrian Teachership. The "Lehrerhaus" - Building offered originally a Café-Restaurant which today is the Supermarket "Billa" in house. Further there was a Function Hall and Theatre called "The Josef-Saal" which turned into the "Vienna English Theatre during the 1960ths. In the Court Yard was a Teacher's Bowling Hall which today is the Address of the Head Quarter of the Austrian Alpine Association, a Club for Mounteneers.
