The name "König von Ungarn" (King of Hungary) is well deserved. In the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from 1867 to 1918 Hungarian aristocrats and magnates lived permanently in the luxuriously appointed apartments. Some guests stayed there for decades. Many prominent names can be found in our guest book, which is well worth studying.
Apart from the highest demands in terms of comfort, convenience and luxurious living, these regal guests attached great importance to choice cuisine. We are proud to be able to maintain these standards today.
The restaurant "König von Ungarn" has been managed in its present form since 1746. Even Mozart will have appreciated its flair and exquisite cuisine. The restaurant still has a "Mozartstüberl" today, above which the world renowned composer lived for several years. It was here that he composed the opera The Marriage of Figaro. "Figarohaus", which is officially named after the opera, is part of the building.
