Are you looking for an original and typical Viennese wine tavern (Heurigen)? We found a great place where you can not only enjoy typical Viennese food and excellent wine, but also listen to original Viennese songs every Tuesday!
Heurigen Hengl Haselbrunner is located in Grinzing, the home of a great number of wineries. Various musicians offer particular programmes, shows or simply sit and jam, as they chat and drink along!:-) On some evenings the owner of the Heurigen joins them and sings with them.
On Thursday the 29th of March, the annual International Day will take place at Modul Tourism College. This event is a charity event, organized by international hotel management students who usually try to present their nations’ culture, history, facts and of course food and beverage specialties.
Grease – the musical that has been popular for 40 years is back. It will be staged in Vienna’s Stadthalle from the 6th until the 25th of March 2012. The first “high school musical” of the 50ies is all about Cadillacs, Petticoats, parties, rebellion and of course love!
The musical was successful when it was first performed and relived another hype in the 90s in London’s West End. Now its German version has been revised by the successful director David Gilmore and is travelling through German speaking countries. Even though it will be shown in German, the musical’s songs and music remains international and will definitely bring back the emotions one can live through when listening to songs like “You are the one that I want” or “Summer nights”.
And this is to get into the mood:
2012 is dedicated to Klimt due to his 150th birthday celebration. On the 24th of February a new exhibition “Klimt: up close and personal” started at Leopold Museum. The collection reveals images, letters and insights around Klimt. It will show masterpieces owned by Leopold Museum, but also national and international loans.
Experience Vienna differently; Ice skating in Vienna’s historical centre! Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Rathaus (town hall) and Burgtheater while skating around on 7000m2 of ice.
