Christmas is over, the New Year has only just started and the question is what will happen to the old Christmas trees?
Not only are Christmas trees removed from Vienna’s households, but also the Christmas trees of Rathaus and Schönbrunn were taken down.
The foresters of the city of Vienna again make something useful out of the wood: The Rathaus-Christmas tree is processed to insect hotels. About 10 bees’ hotels will be placed in the Vienna wood, in Lobau and in Lainzer zoo! Above all wild bees, ladybirds and several wasps should find the optimal habitat there!
HolidayCheck, the largest German-speaking platform for hotel reviews, has chosen the 99 most favoured hotels worldwide out of 780,000 hotel reviews of the past 12 months.
We are very proud to announce that due to the great number of excellent hotel reviews we are now not only among the 99 most favoured hotels worldwide, we are also the most favoured hotel in Austria.
Our entire team is really, really happy!
We would like to thank all our guests for their continuing efforts to write reviews!
Thank you for letting us serve you throughout the year in our house.
The whole team from the Boutique Hotel Stadthalle wishes you a Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Feliz Año Nuevo Boldog Új Évet
Felice Anno Nuovo Yeni Yiliniz Kutlu Olsun Bonne Année
Feliz Ano Novo Scecna nova godina
