From the 1st of September to the 7th of October 2012 a musical on Klimt will be shown in Vienna. The musical covers the life of Austria’s most famous painter Gustav Klimt. It deals with his early works, his years of success, his dramatic strokes of fate and his love and muse Emilie Flöge. Mostly it will be underlined by excellent rock music.
On Wednesdays the performances will be held in English. They start at 7:30pm and take place at Künstlerhaus Wien

To reach Künstlerhaus from our Boutiquehotel Stadthalle, take the underground U3 to Stephansplatz, change to U1 to Karlsplatz, take the exit “Akademiestraße-Künstlerhaus”.
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.

Carmen, Anna Bolena and La Bohème are only 3 of the many masterpieces that can be found on this summer’s programme. Films start when it gets dark and the best is: there is no admission fee.
It is summer again and we all want to escape the city’s heat. Here are some ideas of where to go to go swimming in Vienna. Schönbrunnerbad: swim next to the palace of Schönbrunn.

The summer cinema is getting more and more popular and it is one of the most favorite tourist activities in Vienna. If you want to enjoy cinema in a different way, you are right in Vienna. This year we have a large selection of open-air cinemas, in parks or also in front of town hall.
From Friday the 25th until Monday the 28th of May, Vienna’s Rathausplatz will be transformed into a large funfair area.

It is the 7th time that this event is taking place. This year’s spring-cleaning started on April 23rd and will be on until the 8th of May 2012. It is an event of the city government, supported by the local municipal authorities and a lot of private initiatives. Last year over 300 initiatives, schools, kindergartens, clubs and individuals (in total more than 11,600 citizens) took part and helped to clean our city.
Making people aware of how much waste they produce and how many people do not care to throw them out in proper bins, but rather place them anywhere in the streets. Initiatives are equipped with rubbish bags and gloves by the local authorities and the waste that was collected will be picked up and separated properly.
Vienna will even be cleaned under water. 100 divers will clean the Danube on the 28h of May.
What a great initiative!
