It was one of those days: gray, stressful and me not inspired at all, even though I still had a lot of creative work to do. There was no better time to take a break and walk, through the light-flooded rooms of the Upper Belvedere in Vienna. A short excursion to one of the most beautiful cultural treasures in Vienna. And one of my favorite places to recharge.
The Weltmuseum Wien is currently offering a new format, in which visitors are guided through scenes of migration in a mixture of performance, dialogue and museum visit. A review of an evening walk between stories, teapots and the dragon tattoo of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
Modern art to dream: For the first time, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is dedicating an exhibition to Mark Rothko. Uniquely beautiful and with plenty of room for your own thoughts, despite the many visitors. Here are my most concise impressions.
Rainy days and the eternal question: A good book or a trip to the museum. I said: Both. Follow me through the Literature Museum Vienna.
Insider tip for you: The Justice Palace in Vienna. Read more about one of the most beautiful places in Vienna, which is still undiscovered by tourists. The entry is free. The history of the building exciting. And the view from the café on the roof a dream.

An ironic view on cultural predators. Six photographs and an eight-hour installation. And a small smile in the end. Lucky me, I was allowed to be there when Lisl Ponger personally explained the exhibition to a small group and guided us through her work.
The Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten, Vienna, is a special place: Over 300 years of tradition gather here, surrounded by the oldest baroque garden in Vienna. About an art- and culture exchange, that has survived for centuries in our living rooms.
