The Ballhausplatz is a historic square in Vienna's 1st district of Innere Stadt. It lies between the Volksgarten, the Federal Chancellery, the Hofburg and the Heroes' Square. The word Ballhausplatz is a metonymy for the Austrian Federal Government and the Office of the Federal Chancellor, comparable to the importance of Downing Street in the United Kingdom. For centuries, Ballhausplatz was synonymous with the Austrian Foreign Ministry, which resided there for 286 years.
