"The project on Straubingerplatz is something very special to us. We are delighted to be able to contribute to the revival of part of the imposing history of Bad Gastein as well as its path towards the future. In the process, our priority is to ensure that our guests as well as the residents of Bad Gastein are able to identify with the project and the new products. That said, we will always keep our doors open for personal encounters and exchanges of ideas. Even now, we look forward to a vibrant town center and we wish to thank the Spa & Tourism Office for their communications support as well as all local residents for their understanding during the construction phase." - Daniel Eickworth, CEO of Hirmer Immobilien and Travel Charme Hotels & Resorts

History of the Building Project

Built between 1791 and 1888, the ensemble of Hotel Straubinger, the Badeschloss and the Old Post Office has long contributed to the iconic appearance of downtown Bad Gastein and is historically listed.

What is planned?

The historically listed hotel ensemble from the Belle Époque is being renovated, whilst the remodelling project concludes with the addition of a new building. In total, the ensemble will be home to 150 4- and 5-star-category rooms. The construction site is expected to be active until summer 2023.
