Kempinski Unveils Palais Hansen Kempinski Hotel Vienna

Mar 21, 2013

Kempinski Hotels recently unveiled the Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna. Although Theophil Edvard von Hansen and Heinrich Förster originally designed the building as a hotel for the 1873 World Exhibition, this is the first time the building has welcomed guests.

For the past two and a half years, Vienna-based architects Boris Podrecca and Atelier Hayde Architekten⎯⎯along with Paris-based designer Jean-Claude Laville⎯⎯have restored the building. The heritage-listed Renaissance Revival-style building occupies seven floors with 152 rooms and suites, as well as 17 private residential apartments.

Restaurant Die Küche serves breakfast in a casual farmers' market atmosphere and a dinner menu inspired by traditional recipes, while Edvard offers seasonal fare.

Designed in a mahogany and creme palette, the cigar lounge is the largest in Vienna. The lobby lounge and bar additionally serves traditional Vienna afternoon tea in an extended living room design.
