Hotel Wiesler: Art and Design

Located in the centre of Graz, Austria, Hotel Wiesler has always been a symbol of luxury. Opened in 1909, was taken over by the Weitzer family in 1999. The owner Florian Weitzer, who loves to re-interpret old buildings in a contemporary way, has been transforming the hotel since 2010, mixing different styles, from Art Nouveau to modern design. Hotel Wiesler has a cosmopolitan atmosphere and is set in the creative area of the city, right by the River Mur, next to the Kunsthaus museum.

The 98 rooms, 41 of them refurbished, are divided in different categories (Small, Medium, Independent, Large, Extra and Suite). All rooms are a mix of new and original elements, and furnished with individual pieces, like guitar, antique record player, typewriter and many more. The Speisesaal restaurant with bar, has a relax atmosphere; guests can have breakfast under the Art Nouveau mosaic ‘Spring’, by Leopold Forstner, with homemade marmalade, fresh farmhouse bread or try international delicacies.

In Oase guests can enjoy a sauna or a steam bath and, at the in-house barber, Barbier, they can experience a traditional hot shave with a facial massage, accompanied by a black Turkish coffee. The seminar rooms (Frühling, Goldener Engel and Klimt) of the hotel are perfect for meetings, workshops, seminars and events.
