Contemporary Art at its Best
Helena Ramsbacher has always had a passion for contemporary art. She has collected select works of art by international and Viennese artists. Since 1999, she has been the owner of Das Tyrol. Parts of her collection are now displayed in the hotel. Helena Ramsbacher herself chose art pieces for each of the 30 hotel rooms as well as for the public areas of the hotel – and thus shares the Tyrol collection.
According to Helena Ramsbacher's passion, the focus of the Tyrol collection is on contemporary Viennese and international artists, many of whom have ties to the city of Vienna: Rosemarie Benedikt's coati are part of the collection as are several intensive works by Emmerich Weissenberger. Ludmilla Alexandrova is represented with her works "Chess - the Game of Queens", "I Love You", and "Circus".
The Vienna collection of the Ukrainian artist is open to the public, and her studio is in the Ringstraße galleries. Richard Jordan's "Shadows in the Mirror", Kiki Kokelnig's famous heads made of Murano glass, and Sabine Christmann's still lifes are part of the collection. Works by Lucia Riccelli, Ute Aschbacher, Josephine Scianna, Anselm Glück, Harding Meyer, Martá Czene, Veronika Dirnhofer, Tagaki Saeko, Markus Prachensky, Attila Adorjan, Hermann Nitsch, Pia Arnström, and Susanne Pörner can also be seen. Works by Gunter Damisch, Tom Fleischhauer, Bernhard Ammerer, Elke Huala, Miguel Henz, Katherina Mair, Roger Krall, Thomas Naegerl, Dieter Koch, Margret Kohler-Heilingsetzer, Wolfgang Wiedner, Benedict, Loretta Stats, Veronika Zillner, Dejan Dukic, and many others make the collection fascinatingly diverse. The Tyrol collection currently includes around 1,000 pieces - and is constantly growing…
The Tyrol Collection currently features around 100 different artists. We would like to point out a few well-known, award-winning ones:
His scenic work combines landscape with urban spaces and favors autobahns. Figurative elements play an important role; they contribute the desired dynamic and make the joy of people perceptible. The use of adhesive tape on the canvas changes the structure in the image. This is an effect that is important to Bernhard Ammerer. The artist, born in 1978 in Vienna, was the recipient of the STRABAG Art Award 2007.
The Hungarian artist born in 1968 has focused intensely on painterly solutions to realistic representation since the beginning of the 1990s. At first glance, you are reminded of hyper or photorealism. When you look closer, you notice the complexity. Her goal is not the copying of a realistic representation but a redefinition. Attila Adorjan is the recipient of numerous awards: Hórvath Endre award, Hungary; STRABAG award for painting; award from the national foundation for culture, Hungary; Silber Speer award; award from the CW Bank Vienna - Budapest competition; award from the Budapest Bank; award from Nógrád county – Mecénás art award; award at the autumn exhibition in Szécsény; Fields, award from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts.
This painter and performer born in Rome moved to Vienna in 1995. She currently lives and works in Vienna and Rome. Her work as a painter is influenced by the performing arts. She works on an un-primed canvas, which strongly emphasizes the presence of her figures. Her artistic style is fascinating and distinctive: suggestion, omission, obfuscation, and yet accentuation. Her paintings and drawings thus have an aura of mystery.
The Austrian painter born in1958 and was famous in the context of the "Neue Wilde" in the 1980s. Gunter Damisch lives and works in Vienna and Freydegg. He is one of the most internationally important representatives of Austrian contemporary art. His thick, relief-like application of color and the intense, dark colors make his manner of painting distinctive. Gunter Damisch has a professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
Awards and distinctions: Römerquelle art competition, Max Weiler award, Karl Rössing award, award from the city of Vienna for the fine arts, Anton Faistauer award for painting from the state of Salzburg, award at the 2nd international triennial for graphic arts / Prague, cultural award from the state of Upper Austria for fine arts, Lower Austria cultural award honorary prize for fine arts
The Berlin painter was born in Dommershausen in 1954 and died in Berlin in 2011. Tom Fleischhauer knows New York, Istanbul, Barcelona, Monaco, Miami, etc. well through studies abroad and due to exhibits. With a very individual style, he depicts a portrayal of modern civilization, shows people in urban settings, and holds on to the moment of a place. With the use of all the nuances of gray, white, and black, he succeeds in creating everyday scenes like photographic snapshots. Solo exhibits in Mannheim, Hamburg, Munich, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Frankfurt, Mannheim, Seoul, Düsseldorf, and many other cities have brought Tom Fleischhauer the highest international recognition.
Born in Graz in 1966, this Austrian artist studied with Franz Graf and Gunter Damisch at the Academy of Fine Arts. Whether drawing, painting, installations, or art projects – his work always has a strong connection to taboo religious topics. Renowned galleries in the cities of Vienna and Graz as well as in Venezuela and Luxemburg have displayed works by Emmerich Weissenberger several times.
This artist born in1973 lives and works in Vienna and Lower Austria. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Wolfgang Hollegha and Hubert Schmalix. In her artistic work, she focuses on the human body, which absorbed in the crowd, has lost its individuality. "My body is lost." Numerous individual and group exhibits in Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, and Italy display her paintings and collages. Since 2004, she has had a teaching position at the Institute of Art and Design with Christine Hohenbüchler at the TU Wien.
The ceramic and glass artist was born in 1939 in Baden near Vienna. Along with her large porcelain figures and miniatures, she delights international collectors with her perfectly shaped glass coati. Having become her trademark in the meantime, she continuously stages her famous coati in different ways: individual, stacked on top of one another, or entwined in the style of the Yin and Yang symbol. Austria's most famous living ceramic and glass artist was distinguished with Austria's Cultural Award in 2005. Many of her works can be found in museums and private collections in Austria and abroad.
The Austrian ceramic artist was born in 1943 in St. Georgen ob Murau. Feldspathic glazes, ash glazes, and salt glazes - for her objects, Elke Huala uses primarily stoneware. Her main themes are corporeality, birth, death, heads, figures, and torsos in movement. The fascinating interplay of form, surface, and color provides a highly artistic quality. The borders between painting, sculpture, and ceramics blur in her works. Exhibits in Austria, Germany, Norway, and Switzerland, as well as numerous awards have given her an international reputation.
Born in 1954 in Mautern in Styria, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with professor Rudolf Hausner. After many trips abroad including to Afghanistan, Spain, and Greece, he now works and lives in Mautern. He named his oil paintings "Menschenbilder". The person, often turned away and thus faceless, often occupies only a small part of the work. The powerful spaces around the person characterize the picture. Light sources from high above create the typical dreamlike character and cool effect of isolation. In 1982, Gottfried Leitner was distinguished with the award for promoting the Theodor Körner endowment fund.
Born in 1960 in Offenbach am Main, Sabine Christmann completed her studies at the Karlsruhe and Stuttgart art academies. She was also labeled as a "painting director" - and for good reason. She stages her protagonists in classic still lifes. Her protagonists are bottles, glasses, cans, and plastic or paper bags. These are items that resemble everyday objects and yet are distinguished by abrasions, creases, and kinks and tell her exclusive story. Their reflection gives them a sense of lightness as if they were floating. The border between reality and appearance blurs.
Márta Czene, born in 1982 in Budapest, lives and works in Budapest. You can recognize a picture by this painter immediately without being able to say exactly what makes it so special. The Hungarian artist combines a realistic concept and snapshots with personal visions. Sometimes she interprets works by other artists from the memory of resulting impressions. Sometimes it is films that service as her projection surfaces. They are often darker images with a high aesthetic. Márta Czene has been distinguished with the Barcsay Award, the Endre Bela Award, and the STRABAG ArtAward International.
Born in 1967 in Horn in Lower Austria, Veronika Dirnhofer grew up in Vorarlberg.
At the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, she studied in the Prachensky master school. Her works are in a large format and often combine different layers of paper. She creates new levels in her collage-like works. The frame or mounting for her images serves as a stage between abstraction and figuration. Thoughts are written down, and photographs and texts are included through obfuscation. Veronika Dirnhofer has received the honorary prize from the the Federal Ministry of Economics and Research, the cultural award from the state of Vorarlberg, and the recognition award from the state of Lower Austria.
Dimitris Hoffmann was born in Thessaloniki. In 1983 he came to Austria, studied art history and archaeology, and visited the art institute in Vienna. In oil paintings as well as abstract acrylic works– he wants to unite two identities in his works: the spontaneity and light of the south with the precision and patience of the north. Expressive, non-mixed colors are characteristic of his work.
Born in1958 in Villach, this artist has lived and worked in Paris since 1993. She is a member of "Maison des Artistes" as well as Carinthia's Art Society. At the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, she completed a master class for the art of minting medal and small-scale sculpture with professor F.X. Ölzant and for painting with professor Markus Prachensky. Visits abroad to Brittany, Cévennes, Normandy, Burgundy, Lot, Provence, New York, London, India, Nepal, the USSR, China, Guadeloupe, and Slovenia influence her work. In 1991, she was presented with the awarded for painting from professor Mikl, the Tobacco Museum in Vienna. Two years later she received the master school award from professor Markus Prachensky.
This artist was born in 1949 in Vienna. She lives and works in Vienna and Upper Austria. At the Academy of Fine Arts, she completed a master class for graphic arts with Max Melcher, and at the University of Vienna, she studied pre-Columbian art of Mexico and Peru. Inspired by her studies, she has focused on ceramics for over 10 years. Along with ceramic objects, Margret Kohler-Heilingsetzer also dedicates herself to drawing, mix technique, printed graphics, and photography. She is a member of the Austrian Artists' Society and IntAkt (International Association of female artists) as well as araila, the association for Austrian, Iberian, and Latin American relations.
Born in 1974 in Sundsvall in Sweden, she completed her studies at the University for Applied Arts in painting with professor Adolf Frohner and professor Christian Ludwig Attersee. The artist lives and works in Vienna. In her painting, she address the controversy with a world that is overloaded with the figurative. Pia Arnström places the image of media in direct confrontation. At the same time, she brings her images back to a state of rudimentary clarity. The artist occasionally thins out the colors. She also often uses text in her works.
Kiki Kogelnik was born in 1935 in Bleiburg and died in 1997 in Vienna. She is considered an Austrian advocate of Pop Art. During her time in New York, she met Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. This was an encounter that continued to influence her imagery. In 1965, she created the group of works entitled "Hangings" from vinyl. In the 1970s, the ironic representation of the woman body became the focus of her creations. With the Venetian heads in the 1990s, she became known to a broad audience. The use of forms in the 1990s became even more abstract and stereotyped. She expanded her painted, sculptural, and installation work by adding elements of playfulness. In 1995, she received the award from the city of Vienna for fine arts. In 1998, she was posthumously bestowed with the Austrian Cross of Honor for Science and the Arts.
Born in 1979 in Brasov in Romania, she graduated from the school of arts in Brasov and studied painting and graphic art with professor Hubert Schmalix at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Loretta Stats lives and works in Lower Austria. Her images are a confusing yet colorful combination of interwoven, bizarre color and line work. If you look closer, you will recognize the underlying and new dimensions are opened. Along with other awards, Loretta Stats received the Lenzing Art Award in 2001. In 2011, she was distinguished with the Walter Koschatzky Art Award.
Born in Klagenfurt in 1970, this artist lives and works in Vienna and Zurich. Her art finds its expression in video and room installations, objects, modeling clay figures, and animation. Especially famous is her artistic figure/fictional character Lili, a body made of wax modeling clay or an animated figure in a cartoon. She shows her emotions directly, blatantly. Judith Lava has had numerous exhibits in her home country in Vienna and St. Pölten and abroad in Zurich, Basel, and Ukraine. She is the assistant of Pippilotti Rist in Zurich.

Music, Events, and Attractions
Welcome to the world's music capital: more famous composers have lived in Vienna than in any other city. Music is literally in the air here: the Vienna Philharmonic and the Vienna Boys Choir set the international tone. The State Opera and the Golden Hall in the Musikverein are among the world's leading venues. Tradition endures to this day - the "Vienna sound" pioneered by top local DJs enjoys worldwide popularity. Waltzes and operettas are quite at home here as are musicals "made in Vienna", which have conquered international audiences. Let yourself be captivated by hit musicals, experience magical moments during concerts in the Musikverein and Konzerthaus...
Vienna is culture – and indeed in every form. Multifaceted, fascinating, and filled with variety: from ornate Baroque buildings and "golden" Art Nouveau to modern architecture. The tower by Dominique Perrault, the striking hotel on the Donaukanal by Jean Nouvel, and the kinked apartment tower of Coop Himmelb(l)au by the Gasometer. The new main train station is one of the most modern throughout Europe.
If you like going to museums, you will find an Eldorado here. Vienna has over 100 museums: large, important collections of international stature as well as those that are quite small and curious.

Vienna's most beautiful sides in rainy weather
"When in Rome, do as the Romans do". Now, this saying can be applied to Vienna. Whenever it is rainy, we Viennese love to shopping or out to eat. So, when you visit Vienna, you'll probably want to do the same. We definitely recommend it!
The large, covered shopping malls such as "Steffl" or the "Ringstraßengalerien" on the Kärntner Straße are certainly worth visiting. Here, there are many different stores under one roof. "Gerngross" is also right by our hotel on the Mariahilfer Straße. Not covered but especially luxurious: Vienna's most exclusive shopping area awaits you. Take a stroll in the Golden Quarter through the flagship stores of international designer labels and experience luxurious shopping in a historic ambiance.
We recommend a cozy coffee house when you are ready to take a break. Vienna is famous worldwide for its pastries, and a cup of hot "melange" is almost a heavenly pleasure.
Or are you in the mood for traditional Viennese treats? You simply have to try Tafelspitz, Kaiserschmarren pancakes, or Wiener Schnitzel. You will find our best local tips under the section "Wining and Dining".
If you are interested in culture, Vienna has plenty to choose from. in the 1920s, Karl Kraus wrote: "The streets of Vienna are paved with culture. The streets of other cities with asphalt." Museums, galleries, exhibits – the possibilities are seemingly limitless. You will find more info under Information about Vienna. And we are especially fond of the Museumsquartier. Not only because it is located right next to us, but also because numerous museums can be found right next to one another: Architekturzentrum Wien, Kunsthalle Wien, Leopold Museum, MUMOK, ZOOM Children's Museum, and quartier21. You can walk from one cultural highlight to the next without getting wet.
