The time has come! Days are getting shorter, it is definitely much colder now and slowly the smell of Christmas cookies and mulled wine is filling the atmosphere.
Advent will be here soon and with it, all the many beautiful Christmas markets in Vienna! While the little ones can enjoy warm chestnuts, the older ones can warm up with a glass of Punsch or mulled wine.
– a kiss changes the world
2012 will be dedicated to Gustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt was a painting genius and pioneer of the Modern era around 1900. Most of his life he lived in Vienna. Klimt revolutionized the art of painting and his works continue to fascinate to this day. His best known painting “The kiss” can now be seen at the Vienna Belvedere. In 2012 he would have celebrated his 150th birthday. Many museums in Vienna use this as an occasion and present special exhibitions.
Our special suggestion is the Klimt Villa in the 13th district of Vienna. Until his death he had his studio there.
Here is a list of all the exhibitions of next year!
