Enjoy spring in Vienna – May 2017 has a lot to offer!

Snow is falling....it does look pretty but it also makes us think about warmer days in spring. We all are looking forward to having breakfast outside on the terrace, a bike ride through the city or a stroll through the park where we’re kissed by the sun. How good this would be! Vienna in spring is lovely, the „Prater“ (area in Vienna known for its parks and sports facilities) is flourishing, the parks fill with sun lovers and the cafés open their „Schanigärten“ (Austrian for terraces). And in our beautiful hotel the lavender starts to blossom on our lavender rooftop garden – not only a visual but also a sweet-smelling highlight. Events in Vienna in spring Apart from the visual pleasure Vienna offers in springtime, there are also some great events coming up that definitely make the metropole worth visiting. The “Stadthalle”, an event venue only a few steps away from our hotel, stages a lot of exciting events. Upcoming events include concerts of the worldwide famous bands Kiss (21st May) and Deep Purple (17th May) as well as the musician Shawn Mendes (4th May). Furthermore, performances by well-known German comedians like Dieter Nuhr (14th May) and Otto (9th and [...]

The Life Ball 2017 – Know your status!

After a year of a creative pause, the 24th Life Ball is taking place again in Vienna this year. Since 1993, the Life ball, which is hosted in favour of HIV and AIDS sufferers, is one of the biggest charity events in the world. This year, the Life Ball takes place in Vienna’s town hall on the 10th June. How it all started… The Life Ball’s face and founder is Gery Keszler, who established the charitable association Aids Life in 1992. The non-profit organisation supports people who suffer from HIV or AIDS infection and set itself the goal to inform society about the dangers of HIV and AIDS and sensitize them towards the illness. The first Life Ball took place in 1993, by that time it was only a small, originated from the gay scene, event in Vienna. But even then, Keszler managed to convince the city administration of his project and won them as a partner. Two more sponsors helped to make the ball happen. The proceeds that benefit the association Aids Life came up to 1.100.000 Austrian Schillings (about 80.000 Euro). In the second year, the proceeds from donations, sponsoring, and entry fees could already be doubled. This [...]
