Hotel Bauer
Hotel Bauer
THE BAUERs has set an exceptional hospitality in Venice since opening the doors in 1880. Originally, the hotel was known as the Bauer-Grünwald due in part to a little Venetian romance. A young, enterprising Austrian by the name of Julius Grünwald arrived in Venice, and promptly fell in love with the daughter of Mr. Bauer, the well-respected Director of Venice's Hotel de la Ville. Appreciating the young Grünwald's head for business and grand style, Mr.Bauer approved of the match and history was made. A hotel business followed, and after the two young ones were married, the partnership between the two men was complete and firmly established a Bauer tradition of family management that continues to this day.
