Anyone learning German in Vienna who wants to know what’s happening in the city will get the best information from the Vienna city newspaper Falter. This weekly appears every Wednesday and is available in tobacconist’s and newsagencies. In the middle there is an event calendar, where all events are listed by artistic genre and day of the week.
There is also information about theme and content of the event as well as pleasures or displeasures. The at times mordant commentaries are amusing to read and help to reinforce language knowledge gained at the DeutschAkademie.
