From October 20th to November 2nd the annual Viennale will take place. This international film festival is an absolute must in Vienna’s event scene.
Several Austrian and international premieres are going to be shown: documentaries, feature films, special programmes, retrospectives, biographies and tributes in lots of small and cosy cinemas in the city centre.
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.

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.
All staff members of Boutiquehotel Stadthalle joined a training to learn how to extinguish a fire and how to evacuate the hotel in case of danger. This training, done on a regular basis, is compulsory by law and was held by Mr. Michael Schachel an expert for fire protection and fire control. The 4 hour course was interesting and full of action. Different types of fires were discussed and the different types of fire extinguishers were shown. The funniest part was when every one of us tried out the different fire extinguishers. The handling is very simple. The test alarm and evacuation also worked well and arriving guests were happy to be greeted by 30 staff members upon their arrival:-)
Here are some photos to get an impression of our experiences!
