Klimt & Vienna

Among colorful personalities and brilliant artists such as Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele, Josef Hoffmann, and Otto Wagner, Gustav Klimt has characterized the turn of the 18th and 19th century as well as today's world in fascinating ways. He lived and worked in the heart of the Habsburg monarchy, which was a melting pot of Middle European cultures. Gustav Klimt lived during a turning point in time that heralded the start of modernity and rapidly revolutionized the art world. The fascination of this epoch contributes to the special charm of Vienna to this day. 

Art awakens new life

With much passion and feeling, distinguished artist Shir Catz captured the aesthetic of Klimt's work and masterfully reproduced it on the walls of Kunsthotel Gabriel. Today, 78 of Shir Catz's murals enrich the ambiance of the 59 rooms and inviting breakfast lounge and bring the "Vienna Succession" art movement back to life. The artistic atmosphere makes ***Kunst- & Gartenhotel Gabriel a unique retreat in the middle of Austria's history-rich capital.
