The new Superbude Wien Prater, a hotel where fantasy rules supreme, opens in Vienna
After the success of the first Superbude, which opened in Hamburg in 2006, Superbude Hotel & Hostel & Home Wien Prater has recently opened in Vienna. This new hospitality facility welcomes travelers and artists, for short or long periods, in an informal and imaginative environment.
The very original project is by Laura Karasinski (Atelier Karasinski) and Gerd Zehetner (archiguard), with the collaboration of the students of the Universität für Angewandte Kunst. The students participated in the artistic creation of the structure, customizing the walls of the rooms.

A travel-inspired hotel
The main theme of Superbude Wien Prater is travel and adventure, inspired by Johann Georg Stuwer’s (1732-1804) first hot air balloon flight in Austria. On the top floor of the Superbude, the NENI restaurant offers a panoramic view of Vienna, similar to the view from a hot air balloon. The lobby, a large living room decorated in an original way, has been designed as a place for events and meetings, where everyone can feel at home.
The meeting rooms are multi-purpose and can also be used as conference rooms or for music performances. Also known as ‘Buden’, the 178 rooms are divided into 17 categories, each with its own style, design and theme, to suit the guests’ needs and mood, offering them different stay experiences.
Superbude Hotel’s rooms are inspired by Vienna’s Prater and reproduce different travel experiences. Campsites with campers, bunk beds, tree houses, and rooms decorated with other themes to meet different tastes.
Just as in the first Superbude in Hamburg, also in the Vienna one a lot of attention has been paid to sustainability; mainly second-hand furniture and organic and natural materials and products have been used. [Txt: Arianna Callocchia Photo: Jakub Markech]
