Products of Life


Almost at the identical time as the Altstadt Vienna, the brand Sonnentor was born, with the laughing sun as its trademark. Johannes Gutmann had a vision – he wanted to market the herbal specialties of organic farmers in the Waldviertel region of Lower Austria, where we was born and raised, under this medieval symbol of life and light.



In the early years of the Altstadt, we had small glass bottles with shampoo and shower gel from Sonnentor in our rooms. Today we feature delicious organic tea varieties such as wild berry, dew fresh, China’s finest and ginger enjoyment on our tea buffet


Completely in keeping with the philosophy: "…everything must be in balance, so that joy can grow."
