Koenigleopold

Hotel Fürstenhof, 2013

It’s World Savings Day! On this special occasion Leo and Lukas of Koenigleopold have invited us to their hotel suite to talk about art & life in general. Even though their new, critically acclaimed album “Eure Armut kotzt mich an” is about to be released, the full-bearded, sturdy duo is not all roses. In their imposing four walls these sensitive and prestigious gentlemen share their deep concerns about the banking crisis and present their personal bailout package: 1 euro for each CD sold goes to bank rescue! This generous gesture is well received by their fans and the tabloid press as the album-release show at Radiokulturhaus proves. To change the world for the better was never so much fun.

Hotel Fürstenhof

www.hotel-fuerstenhof.at

Fürstenhof is a popular accommodation for alternative musicians on tour. The family-run hotel on Neubaugürtel next to Westbahnhof offers special discounts for artist. The house was built more than a century ago; dark red carpets, wooden furniture as well as the dedicated family working behind the counter all contribute to an old-fashioned, yet warm and friendly ambiance. The wall in the lobby is full of photos from bands that have chosen to stay at Fürstenhof. It is quite likely to have breakfast next to some musicians in here. During the Bluebird-Festival the number of musicians might have even outreached the number of non-artists.
