DANCE & THEATRE

An artistic voyage of discovery

The expressive elements of dance and painting lend The Harmonie an unmistakable charm which can be seen right down to the smallest detail. With every step you take, you become more immersed in the fascinating world of Vienna’s cultural scene. This artistic vibe also extends beyond the hotel itself and can be seen, for example, in a number of local buildings designed by famous Viennese architect Otto Wagner around the turn of the 20th century.

All the world’s a stage

Harmonie by name, harmony by nature

Harmonious colours and shapes combined with eye-catching design elements create a warm, welcoming and creative atmosphere in our rooms and suites. The Harmonie is a boutique hotel which exudes the artistic vibe of Old Vienna. The overall concept was initiated by the hotel’s general manager Sonja Wimmer, who has had a love of art and dance since her early childhood.

Art project with Luis Casanova Sorolla

Luis Casanova Sorolla’s paintings are as unique as The Harmonie’s overall art concept itself. This Vienna-based artist with Peruvian roots creates unique works capturing the dynamism of dance. Throughout the hotel and in each room you will find paintings depicting solo dancers from the Vienna State Opera – colourful and powerful works created as part of the “Signapura” art project.

The Harmoniegasse

The origins of The Harmonie’s name and concept are as authentic as its plush furnishings. The name can be traced back to the Harmonietheater, a theatre formerly located on the eponymous Harmoniegasse road. Today still you can admire the imposing façades of the historic buildings designed by the famous Austrian architect Otto Wagner, which have been delighting passers-by for the past 150 years. Right next to the Harmonie Vienna boutique hotel is the first of several buildings designed by Wagner as an ensemble in the Harmoniegasse. With so much city history on our doorstep, it was soon clear that the name of the hotel had to be, you guessed it, “The Harmonie Vienna”.
