Business premises of the Rothschild banks

In the cities where the Rothschilds settled, they established their business operations in a variety of buildings in Frankfurt, London, Paris, Vienna and Naples.

Spreading out of Frankfurt, from New Court in the City of London to the rue Laffitte in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, the Rothschild banks made their mark on the landscape of the cities where they traded.

In Vienna, the very building of the bank itself was a statement of political and social emanicpation. The bank buildings were symbols of the economic and social rise of the Rothschilds, and each has its own place in the history and fabric of the city of it's creation.
