LVDWIG - die Bar an der Wien

LVDWIG - die Bar an der Wien

Anyone who knows Vienna loves the contradiction of this city. High culture and coziness, cosmopolitanism and petit bourgeoisie at the same time. Lvdwig is an ode to this unique lifestyle. A hand-picked cocktail menu, music and people as colorful as this city is. The design is by architecture legend Gregor Eichinger, the drinks by Isabella Lombardo. The bar is, by the way, also open during the daytime which is an advantage as it’s nestled in the cultural and culinary heart of the city - between the Secession, Naschmarkt and Theatre an der Wien.  After enjoying your drinks, you can choose to never leave the hotel and retire upstairs to one of our lovely rooms.

4-star hotel situated on Vienna’s Naschmarkt

The location of the Hotel on the Naschmarkt allows Vienna aficionados to dive right into a typical Viennese lifestyle. The market, with its dozens of little stalls and selection of fresh fruit, vegetables and specialities, is a colourful and lively snapshot of Vienna, even more varied on Saturdays, with the farmers' and flea market. Both on the market itself and the areas around it, a trendy restaurant and bar scene has developed.

Interview Barbara Ludwig

Which room is your favorite?

The "Berta Zuckerkandl room", dedicated to a free spirited woman with a big heart.

This room is on the floor featuring strong women at the turn of the century. Because of their similar character - compassionate and at times impulsive - this historic figure reminds me of my mother.  Anecdotes exist for both women, their joy of life, spontaneity and their unconventional approach.

Commitment to culture

The culturally committed Ludwig family, who own the hotel, sponsor numerous Viennese cultural institutions, such as the Albertina, the Mumok and the Musikverein and inspire Vienna aficionados to special cultural delights: invitations to previews, exhibition openings, museum visits and preferential ticket orders at the Musikverein.

Artists in Residence

The shutdown of public life is hitting art and culture professionals particularly hard.
So it's all the nicer that a program can now take place in Vienna despite this: The Association of Visual Artists of the Vienna Secession and the Hotel Beethoven jointly announced an artist residency in the fall. Over 200 international artists applied. After a pandemic-related delay, the time has now come: since mid-February, Frenchman Pierre-Olivier Arnaud and Swede Laleh Kaezmi Veisari have been in Vienna. For six weeks, the two will live and work in the city.

International artists in Vienna

In his photographic work, Pierre-Olivier Arnaud questions the nature of images, their manifestations and distribution. His approach joins the tradition of practices based on photographing images; the photographs created by Arnaud are thus always second-hand images, images already seen and used. Whether taken from magazines or taken by the artist himself during his city walks - which are an important part of his practice - they are devoid of any kind of originality. Pierre-Olivier Arnaud, born in 1972, lives and works in Lyon.

Swedish artist Laleh Kazemi Veisariver's interdisciplinary practice combines drawing and painting with sculpture and writing. Through collaborative processes, she explores the social and ecological imaginary. Abstraction, scale and distance are the tools she uses to create installations that measure this framework of analysis and reflection. Her works are in several public art collections in Sweden. Laleh Kazemi Veisari, b. 1983, lives and works in Stockholm.
