Vienna, 1873. The capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire is celebrating the World Exhibition and, to commemorate the historic occasion, the Vienna State Opera is built.
We are talking about the city’s most splendorous era, preparing to receive hundreds of visitors from all over the world.
The luxurious Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna hotel is built to welcome the visitors, in the Ringstraße boulevard: in the heart of the city, only 10 minutes away from St Stephen’s cathedral and with the best views of the city’s main buildings.
139 years later, its owners decided to completely refurbish the building. Yes, the high quality fabrics and carpets would be kept, but placed beside the newest technologies and highest comforts for the hotel’s clientele URSA played a major role in the restoration works of the exclusive 5 star hotel. Its 152 rooms, two restaurants and three bars are all insulated with URSA’s GLASSWOOL range of materials. In particular, hundreds of metres of the URSA GLASSWOOL TWF 1 and URSA GLASSWOOL ACP2/VF mineral wools were used in the project.
The hotel was opened to the public again in 2013, completely updated and with an impressive spa, complete with gym, sauna area, 6 beauty treatment rooms and a whirlpool. Undoubtedly a perfect place to relax after a long day walking along the Danube or visiting the Sigmund Freud Museum, both located in the surroundings of this state-ofthe- art hotel which maintains all the charm and glamour of its glorious past.
