Storia dell'Austria Classic Hotel Wien

Un albergo viennese di antica tradizione

L'Austria Classic Hotel Wien fu eretto nel 1838 come "Hotel Nordbahn". Da allora si distingue per la combinazione straordinaria fra ospitalità professionale e familiare. Nei quasi 200 anni di storia l'Austria Classic Hotel Wien ha offerto una dimora temporanea a numerosi ospiti, fra cui anche nomi famosi.

Già circa 200 anni fa, l'Austria Classic Hotel Wien era molto popolare fra i visitatori di Vienna per la sua posizione centrale. Anche se oggi non sono più le diligenze postali a condurre gli ospiti fino al nostro albergo, la famiglia di proprietari è esigente come allora in fatto di ospitalità. Chi arriva all'Austria Classic Hotel Wien viene accolto come un amico - è il motto che da sempre rispettiamo.

Storia orgogliosa

Le numerose vedute dell'albergo situato vicino al Prater di Vienna, esposte nei corridoi e nelle sale di soggiorno, sono testimoni della lunga tradizione alberghiera.

Una lapide commemorativa ed un collage di foto ricordano, inoltre, un viennese eminente legato alla storia all'Austria Classic Hotel Wien. Si tratta di Max Steiner che, divenuto famoso per aver composto la colonna sonora del film Casablanca, scrisse l'accompagnamento musicale di più di 300 produzioni di Hollywood. Anche il famoso poeta ed artista polacco Stanislaw Wyspianski trascorse molto tempo all´Austria Classic Hotel Wien.
