The Adlerhof in a new guise
Legends are often destroyed when they're renovated. Not so at the Adlerhof, which was once a cozy beisl. Obviously, it isn't one any more, but the new is no less than the old. It's hard to stop marveling at everything there is to discover in the new Adlerhof. The interior is a journey through time, much of it having been created in collaboration with traditional Viennese companies. The front section is a coffee house with Thonet furniture, comfortable green benches, and original wallpaper from the 1960s. The sales counter, where wonderful bread and pastries are also sold, is modeled on the 1950s. The inn-like character has been retained with the old wood paneling on the walls.
An eye-catcher is the covered atrium at the rear. Standing here is a wonderful spiral staircase that used to lead down into the cellar of the Adlerhof and now looks like a large hanging basket. And old balustrade by Otto Wagner, the "paradisaical" fresco of the Austrian Rococo painter Johann Bergl printed on wallpaper, as well as a whole bunch of vintage lamps – one hardly knows where to look. And right at the back, the salon in green.
In culinary terms, the Adlerhof mainly opts for an extensive breakfast, which is served until 4.00 pm.
