Here we go again…As Austria is currently in its 4th lockdown, it might not be as easy for everyone to get into the “festive spirit”. Unfortunately, we can’t take the strain off the current situation from you, but maybe we can at least brighten up your mood a little by taking you on a stroll to the most beautiful Christmas lights in Vienna. So grab a hot beverage of your choice and follow us to the sparkling lights!
The time will soon come: From December 1st to December 24th we are giving away great gifts in our digital Advent calendar every day from organizations in Austria in cooperation with our clients and partners: museums, exhibition halls, theaters, cinemas, from A for Art Carnuntum to V for Volkstheater!

The Vienna Dorotheum was founded over 300 years ago and is now the largest auction house in the German-speaking countries, as well as one of the oldest and largest in the world. But the Dorotheum is not stuck in the past, it has a modern presentation with online auctions and much more. In fall, artworks from various eras, selected antiques, furniture, and porcelain are up for bid at Classic Week and Contemporary Week. Check out further information about classic week here!
In 2020, the Long Night of Museums couldn’t take place and was changed to a format called “Time for Museums.” Missing was the connective element of thousands of people strolling through the night and visiting museums together. But it’s happening again – this year’s Long Night of Museums is taking place on Saturday, the 2nd of October! Not everything is as it used to be; obviously, there are precautions for health safety in place (3G-proof plus a limited numbers of visitors to avoid crowded museums).
