I want to, as long as I am here, open my eyes, look modest and expect, what builds up in my soul.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
From a crafts workshop to one of the most beautiful art hotels in Europe. The history of the Schlossberghotel – Das Kunsthotel reads itself just like a fairy tale. In 1596 it was named the Imperial and Royal carpentry of Graz and the tradition of handicraft kept on for the next centuries. A new chapter was opened in the 1960s as the traditional building was transformed into the “Gasthof Bierstrom”. A few pages later, from 1980 until 1982, the building was vastly remodeled and modernized and reopened as Schlossberghotel. In the following years the hotels grows as two adjoining buildings are added. Another highlight in the story of the hotel was the construction of the new apartments in the Domenig-Spitz in 2011.
Art is not the bread, but the wine of life.
According to the quote of Jean Paul this would mean that the Schlossberghotel – Das Kunsthotel can be compared to a premium, extensively-equipped wine cellar. Exactly like that the art collection offers diversification and excitement on the highest level, numerous treasures and a lot of room for interpretation.
