Annually the Viennese ball season will be held in January and February with lots of dancing and fantastic music.
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! The Schönbrunn Christmas tree was fed to the elephants, giraffes and rhinoceroses of Schönbrunn zoo last monday. The Christmas tree certainly is a welcome green snack for the animals!
