blog posts for Vienna
Welcome to the blog of Apartment.at - Your specialist for Vienna. Do you want to get to know the real Vienna and its people, apart from the guidebooks, then you are in the right place here. Look forward to fascinating insights into Vienna, its people, art & culture and what it is that makes life worth living here.
Johannes & Ulli Hoflehner - two of our hosts with a big heart for their guests and being a host. Together with the passion for the theater, this results in a colorful and very happy picture.
Chris and his wife Mateja I got to know as they stayed in on of our apartments for the time they are in Vienna. Well and I took the chance to interview him how the life is working on a Christmas Market in winter and on music festivals in summer. And what he is doing in the time in between.
I got to know Lisa some time ago during a performance of her cabaret program Ehrengrab and was enthusiastic about her from the start. Because the program is very special, as it combines two things that are very contradictory to our culture: laughter and death. If you then add the Viennese unfriendliness, then something very special and profoundly Viennese results out of this.
In the last blog post I wrote about the Rudolfina-Redoute, the masked ball in the Hofburg in Vienna, and also shortly introduced you to the head of the organisation Oliver Hödl. Today I tell you more about the man who organizes this fascinating ball.
In the last blog post we, Giulia and Zoe, have already told you about our experiences with the Viennese underwater world. Today we continue with the animal part of Vienna. We were in the Zoo Schönbrunn and then in the Natural History Museum.
A shopping street and a cozy cafe on 150m². That can be found right in the middle of Vienna in the `s Fachl and Kaffeebox. More about this great concept and how it all began tells you today Oliver Pinetz, shop manager and coffee lover.
My recommendation, be sure to drop by, because here in the shop you will find a lot of great things, ideal for small / large souvenirs from Vienna.
Zoe and Giulia, 2 students from Germany, did an internship during the summer with us. And were really impressed by the Wiener Prater. So of the part that you can see, experience and visit anytime. But today we look together behind the scenes and what it means to work in the Prater. Karin Koidl was so lovley and gave us some insights here.
Vienna has much more to offer than just Schönbrunn Palace or the Giant Ferris Wheel. It also has many other nice corners and leisure activities. We, the trainees Zoe and Giulia, thought about what we could do in Vienna, to write you more about those other sides of the city and decided to research on the wildlife in Vienna. As there is so much to explore we split the blog articles. Today we start with the underwater world in the aqua terra zoo.
I met Olga more than a year ago, when she joined us in the Yoga & Pilates studio GesundheitLernen. As a teacher of Orienatlian dance. From the beginning, I was simply thrilled with her passion for dance, her warm, funny way. And now she introduces herself here in the blog.
A piece of Guatemala in Vienna - the colorful fabrics by guate stoffe simply make you feel good. In the last blog post I introduced you to OmYogatela who produce their products with the colorful fabrics of guate stoffe. Today, Daniel guate stoffe tofells you more about the fabrics and how it all came to be.
I am very excited about the great fabrics and the many bright colors. The shop simply makes you happy and brings you in a good mood.
Vienna and death have a morbid relationship. On the one hand, the Viennese celebrate life and on the other hand, death is celebrated too. And just now, shortly before All Saints Day, this theme is again very present in Vienna and the cemeteries will soon be festively decorated and lit again.
Therefore, I have asked Marijan of Undertaker Memoria to give you more insights into this part of Vienna.
Honey from the city. What may sound a bit contradictory at the beginning, it is not at all, as Uli and Karl Heller from Honigstadt explain to me. Because in Vienna bees find a unique habitat.
