The Viennese branch of the Rothschild business was founded by Salomon Mayer von Rothschild in 1820. The business quickly grew and had several large industrial enterprises, including salt works, iron and steel works and substantial railway interests.
Confiscated during the Second World War, the Viennese business was not resumed after the war.
