On Tuesday the 28th of February 2012 Donna Leon will be in Vienna reading from her new book Venetian Curiosities. She recounts amazing stories of the Venetian past and its unique history. Who knows whether these tales are myths or pure history? No-one does and this is what makes these episodes and tales so special and fascinating.
Her readings are rare and popular, so you will have to be fast to get some tickets! Don’t miss the chance. The reading will take place in English and it will be supported by I Solisti del Complesso Barocco and conductor: Dimitry Sinkovsky.
Starting at 8pm at the Wiener Musikverein, tickets are available at prices of 5-29€.
We still have rooms available at Boutiquehotel Stadthalle!
Today is Shrove Tuesday – the last day of carnival! It is part of the Austrian tradition that people dress up in funny costumes and celebrate. Cabarets are popular on this day as well as gatherings (mostly in villages) and processions where different carnival groups present their costumes. School children celebrate carnival parties at school and in general you might happen to see people dressed up like clowns, animals, pirates and the like on the street.
Vienna’s night life is also special on Shrove Tuesday!
Our team at Boutiquehotel Stadthalle donated money to the RED NOSES Clowndoctors on this special day. As a small present we offer red noses to all our guests today to make the last day of carnival a special one! Here is a picture of our receptionists:
