Last Saturday we celebrated Gustav Klimt’s 150th birthday. On this occasion all the guests of Boutiquehotel Stadthalle received a complimentary glass of jam, decorated with one of Klimt’s paintings!
Currently there are a lot of exhibitions to celebrate Gustav Klimt:
Leopold Museum: “Klimt: up close and personal”
Belvedere: Belvedere hosts the largest Klimt collection worldwide.
Arts-History Museum: For the first time paintings of the young Klimt can be looked at from the Klimt bridge in 12 meters height.
Have fun in visiting the exhibitions!!
Today is the official International Women’s Day! It was originally founded in times of the first world war to fight for women’s rights and especially for their right to vote.
It was first suggested by the German socialist Clara Zetkin in 1910 to create such an international day after the women’s movement in the US had initiated a successful day of protests for women’s rights in 1909. The first international women’s day was celebrated on March 19th in 1911 in Denmark, Germany, Austria-Hungary and Switzerland.
