Ludwig II, King of Bavaria called it “the finest hotel in Innsbruck”: Grand Hotel Europa is the historic hotel in the Austrian city. Founded in 1869 by Schreiner & Klausner, it stands a few steps from the famous ‘golden roof’, the Imperial Palace, the ski slopes and golf courses. The hotel boasts a glorious past. Since it opened, it has been and still is today the place to stay for prestigious guests, welcoming top celebrities from the worlds of politics, show business and sport. They have included Queen Elizabeth II, the Rolling Stones and even Prince Albert of Monaco during the Youth Olympic Games in 2012. Famous musicians such as Deep Purple and Zucchero are regular guests of the hotel.
The 108 rooms and suites of Grand Hotel Europa offer the best expression of the hospitality of this charming place and the historical eras that it has passed through. These spacious, bright and comfortable rooms were designed to meet the needs of business travellers and tourists visiting Innsbruck alike and are divided into several types differing in style and interior design. They vary from the most classical and historical rooms on the top floor to more recent rooms with a contemporary flavour that is still in tune with the essence of the building and its location. They have all been refurbished and fitted with the most up-to-date facilities; they are refined but always functional and have been newly designed to make your stay perfect. Sleeping well is important but indulging in the pleasures of the best food is just as important. Special mention must therefore be made of the multiple award-winning restaurant “Europa Stüberl”, an elegant setting to enjoy gourmet cooking which, from breakfast to dinner, knowledgeably mixes the rich local tradition with innovative and surprising dishes to be savoured in a cosy but elegant location in the heart of Innsbruck. The Europa lounge bar is in a more contemporary style and is the ideal place for relaxing and socialising over an aperitif, light snack or refreshing drink.

The hotel’s location, in the city centre with direct connections to the main road and rail routes as well as to Innsbruck’s most beautiful peaks rising to over 2,000 metres above sea level, means that it is very easy to get to the hotel and to experience close up, without worry, the discreet luxury of the “capital of the Alps” and the unspoilt nature that surrounds it. There are various events held in the city that should not be missed: “Tanzsommer”, the ancient music festival, “Festival der alten Musik”.
