Christmas is over, the New Year has only just started and the question is what will happen to the old Christmas trees?
Not only are Christmas trees removed from Vienna’s households, but also the Christmas trees of Rathaus and Schönbrunn were taken down.
The foresters of the city of Vienna again make something useful out of the wood: The Rathaus-Christmas tree is processed to insect hotels. About 10 bees’ hotels will be placed in the Vienna wood, in Lobau and in Lainzer zoo! Above all wild bees, ladybirds and several wasps should find the optimal habitat there!
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. There are music, culinary delights and children’s entertainment and you can rent ice skates and lockers. In the evening our Rathaus is beautifully lit and ice-skating becomes a fun activity for both, children and adults.
This Saturday, May 21st, the Life Ball 2011 will take place in Vienna. “Spread the Wings of Tolerance” is this year’s theme, trying to illustrate the invisibility of the HI Virus, as well as of air. Air is one of the 4 elements that have been part of each year’s theme at the life ball.
