Accommodation and indulgence in imperial tradition

The Levico and Vetriolo thermal springs were discovered in the Middle Ages during mining work in the Dolomites. A baths company founded in 1860 had the water channelled over an aqueduct from Vetriolo to Levico and had a large spa built. At the end of the 19th century Levico was granted a town charter and the Valsugana railway line was opened.

With the help of the Berlin entrepreneur Julius Adrian Pollacsek, the town was soon promoted to being an important thermal centre. Pollacsek founded the Levico-Vetriolo-Heilquellen company and had the luxurious Imperial Grand Hotel built in record time. He appointed the Nuremberg landscape architect Georg Ziehl to design the impressive park with its network of footpaths.

The Archbishop Eugen von Habsburg and honoured guests from all over Europe came to the official opening in 1900. Over the following years countless illustrious guests visited the Imperial Grand Hotel.
These included Princess zu Windisch-Graetz, a cousin of Empress Sissi, Archduke Karl Theodor of Bavaria and King Albert of Belgium along with the Princes Borghese and Colonna, members of the Romanov family, financiers like the Rothschild family and industrialists such as Feltrinelli and Sonzogno.

The two World Wars brought a temporary downturn with them. Towards the end of the Second World War the Imperial Grand Hotel accommodated German troops. Levico was once again under fire from the Allies.

The thermal baths, hotel and mineral water bottling has been run by a private company since 1996.

The Imperial Grand Hotel has kept its fascinating atmosphere. It builds on its glorious beginnings with its splendour today and modern 4-star comfort. Having been closed for a short time, the Imperial Grand Hotel is celebrating its reopening for guests who appreciate something really special in March 2016.
