The Blaue Gans (literally blue goose) is the very first arthotel in Salzburg. More than 100 original works of art by contemporary artists such as Franz Graf, Sophia Goscinsky or Jonathan Meese are on display as subtle, sometimes ironic companions throughout the house. 

As soon as you walk into the reception area, you will be under the spell of the work by Irene Andessner. Ask the staff and they will gladly tell you more about the woman in the picture. For more information about the artists and their work iPads are available.  In the hotel’s courtyard, find Vertigo, a converted boiler, created by David Moises. In other parts of the building  you inspect the soundshower by Constantin Luser and have the opportunity to get to know the ultimate machine -"Shannon's Hand" by David Moises. Stay curious as parts of our artwork is changed periodically.
