VIENNA—A hotel in Austria is seeking a modern-day court fool and looking for extroverted and musically talented applicants. 

The Rogner Bad Blumau in the province of Styria will pay the jester 1,400 euros a month, according to reports, and is welcoming creative costumes to the job interview. 

The hotel’s director, Melanie Franke, told the Austrian Times she was looking for someone creative and fun. 

“At the royal courts, jesters were a luxury that kings allowed themselves,” she said. “Today, the client is king.”

The hotel was designed by famed Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and Franke said a jester would fit its hotel’s colourful appearance.
