The arthotel Blaue Gans is the oldest inn in the city of Salzburg, dating back 660 years. It boasts a prime location in the heart of the historic center, which was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, and is only a short walk from Mozart’s birthplace. Today the historic walls of the inn pop with a modern design and contemporary art. What you find at arthotel Blaue Gans is a creative haven for the widely-traveled and the well-read. The hotel even has its own magazine, which you should enjoy along with a cup of coffee - or a glass of wine.
Salzburg’s first arthotel was created by Andreas Gferer as an art-inspired meeting point for music and design lovers from all over the world. Maintaining great respect for the history of the building and the old walls, he simultaneously has implemented new and unexpected things within them. Beyond the hotel, Mr. Gferer is known for his vision and commitment to Salzburg’s “old town” and its best interests.
As a guest, enjoy a complimentary visit to the Museum of Modern Art on Mönchsberg with fantastic views over Salzburg.
