From the Dolomites in Italy to Salzburgerland in Austria… Easy, it’s only a couple of hours driving. We are here to discover the famous Austrian hospitably in all kinds of shape and form. And let me tell you; in Austria they know how to run hotels and make their guests feel welcome. Take for example our first stop, the brand-new design hotel Wiesergut in the ski and mountain area of Saalbach-Hinterglemm. It’s a family-owned property that opened end of 2012. It used to be a holiday farm for young families dating back to 1350, while now it is one of the best-designed hotels in Austria. And here, thank you so much, design is not just only decor (like the opposite of Starck). Unfortunately, something you often see in other lesser successful design hotels. At Wiesergut you will find the essence of hotel design within every nook, corner, handle, door frame, hot tub, fabric, lamp… tailor made and fitted perfectly in one smooth interior.
Owners Sepp und Martina KrÃ¶ll also have their ways in terms of software. The hard working staff is incredible and flexible, from breakfast (love it!) to having a drink late at night at the bar. A design hotel like this works. Completely.
