Hotel Wiesler in Graz, Austria, holds a legacy as having been and continuing to be a source of design inspiration since 1909. A striking construction that’s more than worthy of its location in the heart of this beautiful city, it embraces its prime location next to the River Mur, utilizing views of the Schlossberg and surrounding architecture. Hotel Wiesler has a magical history. This hotel’s been enjoyed by generations, gathering numerous stories and memories from bygone eras, which have recently been brought to life as a result of a spectacular facelift.
Owner Florian Weltzer has breathed new life into the grand Jugendstil walls of the building which have seen more than a lick of paint, as Florian has introduced a brave modern design concept. Believing that the new course he has charted “from 5 stars to independence” enables the hotel to embrace new ideas and keeps it feeling fresh, what makes this makeover so striking is its soul as Florian has rejected any of the stuffiness that’s traditionally found in stalwart 5 star hotels.
Instead, he has boldly created a refreshingly unconventional space that’s light and airy. This hotel has a new contemporary urban philosophy and encourages relaxation, escape and a sense of freedom. The purpose of this makeover is to ensure that Hotel Wiesler, with all its history, has a long future, inspiring visitors for decades to come and it’s definitely looking like a success.
