Austria, Vienna – Grand Ferdinand
This spectacular 1950's building has had new life breathed into it by designer Florian Weitzer. As the former headquarters of Veitscher Magnesitwerke AG on Vienna's magnificent Ringstraße. The building belonged to one of Austria's great businessmen, Karl Wlaschek. The hotel aims to capture tradition, setting the stage with Lobmeyr chandeliers, Wiener Silbermanufaktur silverware, the best French champagne, and at the centre of it all, grand Viennese cuisine.
In many grand hotels, exclusivity is a part of every gesture. Here, the hotel plays a cultural role of welcoming anyone and everyone.
