Boutique Hotel with a lavender roof
We planted lavender on the roof of our hotel for a simple reason:
we love it.
Vienna's largest lavender garden in the middle of the city
Its distinctive smell and lilac color, the gentle sound of humming bees and the enchanting presence of butterflies create a unique and natural atmosphere in the heart of Vienna. When the lavender blossoms in June, our guests can marvel at the lavender roof in full bloom, dotted with red roses.
Some hotel rooms even have a direct view of the meadow of lavender and flowers.
Every year, we harvest and dry the carefully-tended lavender from the hotel garden so that our guests can take come home in the form of bath essences, sachets and other lavender gifts.
Did you know that the word lavender has its origin in the Latin word "lavare", meaning "to wash" and its name refers to its prevalent historical use in bath essences and oils?
