Arthotel Blaue Gans Salzburg, Austria

“A cool urban hideaway, with modern, bright rooms in a 14th century building. Decorated with over 100 original contemporary artworks - a beautiful contrast to the stuccoed ceilings and wooden floors. Suites are well equipped for families. Ideally located at the foot of the Hohensalzburg Fortress.”

“Laid back style epitomises the Blaue Gans. - simple, uncomplicated, slightly impersonal but it delivers the goods. Bedrooms are carefully crafted and fitted into the fabric of the 600 year old building, so each room is unique in size and aspect but uniform in terms of modern design and contemporary art. The popular restaurant and outdoor bar with dining use regional produce with a modern twist and considering the location is equally popular with salzburgers as well as tourists. Blaue Gans – cool and natural.”

"In the 660-year-old building, the hip design and works of contemporary art offset thick walls and ancient beams."
