arthotel Blaue Gans | Hotel
The Blaue Gans has been the oldest inn in Salzburg since 1350. Step by step, the house in the trendy museum quarter of the Mozart city was stylishly extended by an art hotel. It is a place full of inspiration in the heart of Salzburg, opposite the Pferdeschwemme and the Festspielhaus, in the middle of the world-famous Getreidegasse, and in the immediate vicinity of Mozart's birthplace as well as the scene and museum quarter.
The architecture of the Blaue Gans was adapted according to the motto "You can stay overnight in hotels - or live in them". "Off-the-shelf design" is nothing for this hotel, because nothing is at right angles here. Through careful interventions, grown structures became visible and the old building fabric was accentuated. The 35 rooms and suites of this urban hideaway are all individually furnished with natural materials and genuine craftsmanship. Owner Andreas Gfrerer extended centuries-old walls with works by contemporary artists. The modern furnishings of the rooms showcase the stucco and vaulted ceilings, marble floors, baroque doors and historic wooden beams. Over 120 works of art accompany the guest during his stay.
The restaurant Blaue Gans radiates an intimate cosiness. In the centuries-old vault with the original wall panelling and murals you feel safe where the good old days are at home and where you can really eat well. The excellent cuisine is characterized by simple presentation and great craftsmanship. Chef Martin Bauernfeind conjures up seasonal delicacies and traditional Salzburg dishes. Only the highest quality products from the Alpine region are used. Particularly popular is the Backhendl in the Körberl and the Tafelspitz in the copper kettle!
In addition, restaurant manager Jos Huppertz and his service staff serve exquisite wines from the in-house wine archive. The atmospheric originality of the wine archive is the right environment if you have reason to celebrate and would like to gather people around you.
In the BRASSERIE-BAR you will find metropolitan design and a wonderful airiness. In addition to the restaurant's entire food selection, guests are spoiled with small snacks and finger food. In addition, something of high quality for the palate and ears: A good selection of wines by the glass, fancy drinks and selected spirits. Together with relaxed people and good music it is the starting point or the end of a successful evening.
