I wanted to introduce to an interesting event. After all the intense learning at DeutscheAkademie, it is very nice to take the edge off and relax. There is a unique monthly event happening at Kunsthistorisches Museum (https://www.khm.at/en/), called the Kunstschatzi (https://www.khm.at/entdecken/angebote/kunstschatzi/).
The Kunsthistorisches Museum is located on the Ringstrasse across from the Naturhistorisches Museum.The event is a monthly party that is usually themed after a particular museum exhibition. It runs from 19:00 to 23:00. Every hour there are themed tours of the different galleries of the museum and for the English speakers there is a special tour at 21:00.
The main hall of the museum is converted to a dance/lounge area with 3-4 different bar station and a live DJ booth. There are special drinks designed to accompany the theme of the event. The general vibe of the event is very friend and it is a great place to mingle and meet new people. The best part of the museum is the Annual Card (JahreCard) (https://www.khm.at/en/explore/offers/annual-ticket/). For one year you can enter the museum unlimited amount of times and all the Kunstschatzi parties are free for the annual card holders! The regular price is 44 euros but if you are a student and under 25, the price is only 25 euro. For anyone interested in some culture with a little bit of fun, it is a great deal!
The next Kunstschazi is happening on April 17th! See you there!
