The people who stay with us, make the Altstadt what it is. A refuge of the Viennese attitude towards life, a place of joy and happiness. On the occasion of our 25th anniversary, we asked 25 of those companions, regular guests, artists, designers,... to describe their very personal Altstadt experience.

Hubert von Goisern


The Austrian song-writer and world-renowned musician has been traveling the stages of Europe for more than 25 years. As a musical ambassador of Austria, rejuvenator of folk music, an individualist who dusts off beloved traditions. Quite simply: as himself.

Describe the feel of the Altstadt Vienna.

Marvelous! From the first time I visited.

Which is your favorite room?

The Otto Suite, absolutely, because of the roof terrace.

When and how did your relationship with the Altstadt Vienna begin?

The first time I was booked in by Virgin Music back in 2000. Since then, it has always been the first number I call whenever I am in Vienna.
