In 2005, the successful Swiss entrepreneur Dr Hans-Peter Wild took over the hotel. Since then, the businessman, who is known for being the owner of all the companies across the globe that trade under the brand names Capri-Sonne and Capri-Sun, has continued to invest on the ongoing modernisation and improvement of this traditional hotel: “I invest in quality with potential. Both are present in this hotel. It is wonderful to witness how this special place has been improved, modernised, and developed positively through investments in recent years,” Dr Wild summarises.

The modernisation of the place is hard to miss. The Glass Garden restaurant and the Apollo Bar are the proof that innovation is key for a beautiful design.

The Glass Garden restaurant
Located under the new glass dome and offering a spectacular view, the à-la-carte restaurant, The Glass Garden, has a panoramic window façade, which can be opened in suitable weather and offers an extraordinary view of Salzburg’s old town.

The interior comfortably holds 40 guests and contains both premium, handmade furnishings and an elaborate lighting design, which create an outstanding atmosphere. BRABBU was the sitting choice for the restaurant and the bar.
