The Parkhotel Schönbrunn offers modern transit comfort embedded in a showpiece of tradition.

Judging by appearances little has changed over the past century. Built in 1907 as a guest residence for Kaiser Franz Josef I, Parkhotel Schönbrunn has preserved its royal atmosphere. Portraits of the Kaiser’s family still hang in the hotel, as if keeping a watchful eye on tradition.

The modernisation of antiquated lifts with efficient new transit technology was a challenge tackled by experienced professionals. A trusted six-decade partnership with the hotel’s owners, the Hübner family, made KONE the ideal choice for this task.

The Hübner family and the current management, Austria Trend Hotels & Resorts, took utmost care to preserve all original detailing. The period architecture has been restored to its full glory, discreetly retrofitted with new equipment meeting the comfort standards of sophisticated hotel guests.

As KONE replaced old lifts within the existing structures of a historically protected building, space efficiency was a key issue. Contemporary lifts were seamlessly integrated inside the old shafts, looking as if they were always there.

The Kaiser himself would be proud of the results. The Parkhotel Schönnbrunn combines old Viennese charm with the superior comfort of new lifts and reliable service guaranteed by a KONE Care™ Maintenance Service agreement.
