Grand Hotel Wien celebrates its 150th Birthday
5 May 2020
The Grand Hotel Wien at Kärntner Ring 9 will celebrate its 150th anniversary on 10th May 2020. The preparations for this event have been going on for months. The comprehensive plans as to how the hotel wanted to celebrate the round anniversary together with the Viennese as well as Austrian and international guests - starting with the anniversary reception with a grand concert in the ballroom, a Guglhupf world record and the introduction of a new ball tradition - had to be discarded without further ado due to the restrictions imposed by the Corona Pandemic.
Hotel director Horst Mayer commented: "We hold to the same principles as Albert Einstein, who said: 'Two things are necessary for our work: untiring perseverance and the willingness to throw away something in which you have put a lot of time and work' The motto is not to give up and find new ways. We have decided to let the Austrian people celebrate with us in a different way and to offer what is now urgently needed: "Anticipation!" says director Horst Mayer.
