Another famous and successful musical – Sister Act – is currently in town. Enjoy a colourful stage, entertaining choreos and the comical success-story of the singer Doloris van Cartier who happens to witness a murder.
Lebkuchen hearts, steins of beer, Austrian traditional clothes Dirndl and Lederhosen, folk and pop music is what you will get, but also the little something Viennese that comes with it: exquisite Viennese cuisine and of course Viennese wines!!!
The long night of museums will take place for the 12th time this year on October 1st. Sponsored by the ORF – the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation, this event tries to bring culture closer to the people. More than 660 museums and galaries all over Austria will participate in this event and you can visit as many places in one county as you like with only 1 ticket. Museums and galaries are going to be open from 6pm to 1am.
The Vienna wine-hiking days will take place this weekend on September 24th and 25th. There are two different routes leading through the Viennese vineyards, offering breathtaking views, healthy & sporty activity and lots and lots of opportunities to sit down and taste Viennese wine and local food in one of the Heurigen along the way.
This is your place to be: „Die Burgermacher“ („the burger-makers“). Here you can find THE burger for your individual and personal taste.
Everything is home-made: the bread rolls, the fries and their ketchup. All the ingredients come from local farms and the meat, from small Austrian businesses, is delivered daily. The restaurant’s menu varies, because the owners emphasise the seasonality of their products.
Vienna’s Rathausplatz will change its face once again this year and become stage to the famous circus Roncalli. Celebrating its 35th birthday next year the circus will stay in Vienna from September 13th to the 20th of October and will host an extraordinary show to pay tribute to its anniversary. There will be exciting artistry and breathtaking acrobatics with artists from Brasil to Russia and from Spain to England.

Waldviertel is a region in lower Austria, close to Vienna. Every year a large celebration takes place on Heldenplatz in Vienna, to celebrate this region. 90 exhibitors from the various areas in Waldviertel get together to present and celebrate Waldviertel’s culinary, traditional and regional specialities. Different types of beer, wines and schnaps, local food specialities, lots of information about the regions and about interesting tourist destinations –day trips, as well as holidays- are presented there. But there will also be a lot of action present. Children can try to milk cows, different handcrafts are shown such as basket making, there will be a fashion show of Austrian traditional “Trachten” dress and of course many music acts during these 3 days.
Visit Waldviertel pur from August 29th to August 31st at Heldenplatz, just opposite of Rathausplatz and its film festival, and enjoy some delightful local snacks or buy an Austrian Dirndl!?:-)
