And founded the green duke & the healthy duchess, Vienna's first food bike. It was challenging, but in the end you can now enjoy their wonderful food and drinks.

Klettersteig Intro

My life is a stroke of luck. I managed to combine two of my passions and make money from it. I love books and I need a lot of exercise in nature. I have been able to design the Kral Verlag leisure program for nine years. That means constant suggestions and preoccupation with hiking, leisure ideas and temptations. Stephanie has already reported on our book program in her wonderful blog.

Paint your souvenir - that made me curious, because at first I could not imagine what it could be when a friend told me about it. But then I contacted Melanie, the founder, directly, looked at the website and was blown away by the idea and the opportunity to experience Vienna creatively. That's why I asked Melanie to tell you more about this great offer here on the blog.

The past few weeks have been very challenging, often ambivalent, for many of us. Suddenly there was a lot of time, but also a lot of new tasks and challenges and a lot was different. A lot has been questioned and a lot has been rethought. So also the vacation time.

JollyDays Intro

Moments pass. Memories fade. Stories stay.

We all have them ... Holiday & Leisure. Sometimes more, sometimes less, sometimes during the week, sometimes only on weekends. It is the most precious time that exists, because it is the time when we can finally be "ourselves".
