This section of the OeNB’s website contains a list of the Bank History Archives’ records – including file transcripts, minutes and indexes – chosen to give users insight into the history of the OeNB and the OeNB’s role in Austria’s political and economic history. In other words, this section provides a chronological, topic-by-topic look behind the scenes of the OeNB with its rich tradition.

Please note that the Bank History Archives are the archives of the OeNB and its legal predecessors and therefore do not provide access to documents of other Austrian banks.
