When Viktor Sedlacek founded the Grande Hotel de l’Europe more than a hundred years ago, he surely would have never imagined Oehler elegantly jumping over the reception desk while having his image taken by photographer Armin Walcher working with a Leica.

The golden clock at the front door indicated the passing of every full hour and the chandelier in the entrance hall used to sparkle brightly along the aisle and, although these times are gone, entering the stunning building still leaves visitors speechless.

Finding suitable obstacles in this unusual location and performing in the chilly temperatures of the old hotel were the biggest challenges Oehler had to face.
