Gürtel Nightwalk in Vienna - Jul 29, 2011.
The Gürtel Nightwalk takes places in Vienna on August 27, 2011. Listen to live music performances on the Gürtel, where normally the noise of cars is the only thing you can listen to. Performers include "Aber das Leben lebt", "Tanz Baby!", "Effi", "Kommando Elefant" and "Black Shampoo". In the bars along the Gürtel, DJ's and other bands perform. This will be the 14th time the Gürtel Nightwalk is held in Vienna!

Higher rates are expected for Airport Taxis - Jan 19, 2011.
The reasons are: 6% tax increase on fuel as of 01JAN 11 and more important, 100% !!!! increase on parking fees at the airport as of 01JAN11

In future we have to pay min. 6 Euros parking fee for every airport pick up, something we only can compensate until the End of March with our old stock of parking tickets.

We also checked with our competitors - they all increase their rates during the next three months - so there is nothing to fear in terms of competition.

We will not increase the rates for booking received until we mailed out the new rate sheet also for reservations beyond 01 APR.

The Christmas Market at Spittelberg - Dec 2, 2009.
This is definitely one of the most impressive Handicraft-Christmas Markets in Vienna. Somehow one immediately feels like having gone a long way back in time: between old houses which, revitalized and renovated, shine with splendor, over 100 handicraft specialists and traders present and show off their wares.

Jewelry, art carvings, handmade chocolate, ceramics and toys – all finely hand-made – can be acquired and bought here. There’s definitely something out there for your own wished-for present! In case you start feeling cold from all the sights and astounding things around you, you can quickly warm yourself up with the simple Viennese specialties, Indian rice delicacy, Mexican tacos, and other delicious treats!

The Spittelberger Christmas Market offers also foremost an exciting program for children: for the little visitors, there’s the Christkindlwerkstatt (Christmas workshop), a visit from Nikolo and the Weihnachtsmann (Santa Claus) and an amusing children’s cinema!

Go and see it for yourself!

Mr. Klaus Lechner unexpectedly passed away: Hotel Austria - Nov 11, 2009.
On the 2nd of November, 2009, our Reception Manager Mr. Klaus Lechner unexpectedly passed away.

With his impressive professional competence and humane leadership qualities, he has been one of the pioneers of Hotel Austria™s new core initiative during the last five years. Our goal would not have been attained without him.

Everyone who has gotten to know Klaus personally has been immediately touched by his likeable openness. He has created an unforgettably personal atmosphere everyday for our guests with extraordinary attentiveness, unbelievable proficiency in foreign languages, and empathic patience. He was not only an indefatigable coach to his reception team but was also, most of all, a true friend.

As Klaus Lechner passes on, all of us lose a man with a big heart.

All of us will never forget Klaus Lechner.
