Country overview: Austria to gain 66 additional hotels [Infographic]
The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database highlights that Austria’s well-established hotel market will grow further over the coming years, especially in the capital Vienna.
Austria will see 66 new hotel projects open in the years ahead, increasing its room inventory by 8,565 keys, according to our experts. We take a closer look at these forthcoming properties – and consider which ones should definitely be on your watchlist.
Austria’s hotel openings by year
In what’s left of 2021, 15 more hotels with 1,542 rooms will go live nationwide. This is pretty impressive by anyone’s standards, especially when you consider that only 19 properties and 2,206 keys are expected to launch across the whole of 2022.
For 2023, meanwhile, 15 projects with 2,652 keys are currently on the books. And a further 17 projects with 2,164 rooms have already been mooted for 2024 and beyond.
Of Austria’s 66 new hotels, just under two-thirds (43) are in the four-star category, while the other third (23) are aiming for the five-star segment.
Austria’s fastest growing urban hotel markets
The country’s beautiful capital, Vienna, is home to just over a third of the country’s new hotel projects – 23 properties with 3,821 rooms to be precise.
Elsewhere, Salzburg comes in a very distant second place with just four new properties and 504 rooms on the cards for this vibrant cultural hub. This puts it just ahead of Linz, which is awaiting the arrival of three schemes with 597 keys.
