vintage travel labels - austria hungary germany mix

Immerse yourself in the heart of Europe with our captivating collection of vintage luggage labels from Austria, Germany and Hungary. Our Portable Document Format (PDF) collage brings together 12 unique and historically rich travel labels that epitomise the grandeur and elegance of the golden age of travel. These labels are not mere artefacts; they are a testament to the lavish and illustrious past of international travel, offering a glimpse of the luxurious experiences that were once part of venturing across these historically and culturally significant European countries.

In the early to mid-20th century, travel was a symbol of prestige and an indulgence enjoyed by a select few. The advent of stylish and opulent travel was characterised by meticulous attention to detail, not only in the mode of travel but also in every accessory that accompanied it. Among these, luggage labels held a special place. More than just functional items, they were a canvas on which to display the artistic and design sensibilities of the time.

Hotels, airlines, cruise lines and railways commissioned artists to create visually striking labels that captured the essence of their brand and the destinations they represented. Austria’s Grand-Hotel am See is depicted with idyllic alpine serenity, inviting travellers to the tranquil shores of Lake Wolfgang. The lively Hotel Corso in Salzburg reflects the vibrancy of the city’s cultural landscape.

Germany’s historic Schwarzer Adler Inn in Nuremberg and the sophisticated Continental & Hansa Hotel in Kiel are reminders of the country’s deep heritage and warm hospitality. The timeless elegance of the Hotel Carlton and the grandeur of the Grand-Hôtel Continental in Budapest tell of Hungary’s storied past and its role as a crossroads between Eastern and Western Europe.

Each label is a miniature canvas celebrating the destinations that once catered to the whims of the elite. They tell of a time when travel was an event, when steamer trunks and leather suitcases bore these labels as a proud declaration of one’s itinerary and experiences.

For today’s traveller, historian or collector, these vintage luggage labels are not just remnants of a bygone era – they are inspiration for future journeys and a tribute to a time when every journey promised discovery and every destination offered a story.

This collection is a visual feast, a chance to own a piece of history that continues to inspire the art of travel and the romance of adventure. As you affix these labels to your modern luggage, let them serve as a reminder of the timeless appeal of travel and the enduring legacy of Europe’s cultural tapestry.


The PDF downloads are crafted from digitally enhanced quality images from original vintage luggage labels. Files can be saved to your PC or MAC and then used over and over again. Each label on the sheet measures 2 1/2″.

These digital sheets are formatted to print on Avery® White High-Visibility Labels for Laser Printers 5294, 2-1/2″ which can easily be purchased online. When used with self-adhesive printer paper, these labels can be printed and pasted on many surfaces like books, laptops, boxes, pieces of luggage, and much more. They make fun party stickers too!

You can alternatively print our PDF files on any A4 paper your printer allows, like for instance a full A4 sheet sticker, and cut them off individually by using a round 2.5″ glass or shape, and a cutter. You might also want to use stickier paper if you want to paste the labels on your suitcase, as the Avery labels are easier to peal-off over time. Keep in mind that after printing, leave the labels to dry before using them, as the ink could rub off if you use them immediately.

The image preview on the page is a low-resolution jpg and is not suitable for printing. The copy that you receive will be in a high-resolution PDF format.
