Peter Knoll will take over the management of the five-star hotel located on the Schottenring. He is successor to Markus Lueck, who led the hotel from October 2013. He leaves Palais Hansen after having had the most successful month since the opening in March 2013 in order to meet new challenges.

“I am very much looking forward to my new task as general manager of Palais Hansen Kempinski,” says Peter Knoll. “My first priority is to get to know the hotel, its operations and mainly the employees, in order to get settled as fast as possible. I am not only taking over a strong team and a successfully led, magnificent hotel, but I am also moving to a great place: Vienna is an exciting city, providing both culture and history.”
