The Art Hotel Blaue Gans is more than just another cool design hotel and if like us, you have a respect for the period build edging on the quaint, but at the same time, need dashes of the contemporary styling to lighten the load – then you will fall for this place, which is self-assured & oozes confidence.
Milky soft eggshell tones, exposed beams, bespoke furnishings and artistic installations chime well with the period, historic elements adding to the provenance of this former Inn. It is indeed that signatory blend of the old & the new that lend an air of space, whilst being firmly rooted in the magical heritage of Salzburg, right bang smack in the midst of old-town.
This is serious Art direction, with the credentials & aesthetics of an East-side gallery. Spaces shaped by the aged forms play intelligently to foster contemporary pieces – the setting is innovative, being neither obtrusive nor overly designed. Add to this the excellent kitchens and the choice of room types- this bolthole has all the tracking’s of a hotel that feels comfortable in itself with a natural “lived-in” feel.
