'Cultural carriage' offers trips around Vienna

Vienna's first “cultural horse-drawn carriage” offers thematic trips in July, August and September in the Austrian capital. This is a joint project of Susita Fink, drama specialist and director of a small theatre in Vienna, and Martina Michelfeit-Stockinger, who runs the horse-drawn carriage.

The project combines three shared passions: theatre, horses and the city of Vienna. The programme includes various thematic trips together with actors and writers, which present the cultural mega-city from a different perspective.

One of the routes is dedicated to the fairytale world of Vienna. A puppet actress and a writer host this 30-minute journey. A 50-minute trip through the crime chronicle of the centuries is intended for the lovers of crime stories. This year, Vienna marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, who spent 35 years of his life in the Austrian capital. The longest trip is dedicated to him. For two hours, the carriage tours Vienna landmarks related to the great composer.

Each carriage has seats for four guests, and the prices for one trip are 120-180 euro.
