The traditional Viennese Heuriger is one of the best-known wine taverns in Neustift am Walde, located right on the outskirts of Vienna. Conference guests will be greeted with a brief introduction by an official representative of city council, before moving to the hall for a multi-course buffet. “Heuriger” is an abbreviation of “heuriger wine”, and as such the term refers to not only the tavern, but that year’s new home-grown wine too. This young wine tends to be sold throughout the autumn months and spending cosy evenings at a Heuriger has become a staple of Viennese culture.

Queer City Walk

Meeting point: Main entrance of the University of Vienna, Universitätsring 1, 1010 Vienna

Do you know the queer history of Vienna? Its personalities, their fates, living conditions, and how they paved the way for our community today? Their lives and loves were often marked by persecution and exclusion - and sometimes by one or another little scandal...

On this queer city walk, we explore the question of how homosexuality was and is viewed in medicine and criminal law. On the way, we meet a rainbow family in Biedermeier and a romantic love between two men at the Burgtheater.

Immediately opposite, the Vienna City Hall is waiting for us, with its legendary and world-famous Life Ball - but also the sad story of AIDS. In front of the newly renovated parliament, you can experience what has happened around homosexuality and legislation here in recent years, before we get through the cozy Volksgarten to Heldenplatz and thus to one of the most dazzling people and his opulent - and maybe gay - life in the baroque time. We end at Vienna State Opera, where we discover some of the queer Stars and famous singers.


Their Fate: To be a Woman 

Meeting point: Singerstraße 7 Deutschordenshaus, 1010 Vienna

What do women who were exceptional musicians, brilliant scientists, countries’ sovereigns, and theater artists have in common with abused girls from the lower classes and “witches” burned at the stake? – They were exploited, but otherwise stripped off their rights and made invisible as much as possible. If they did not submit meekly, they were mercilessly persecuted. How some women still managed to push through, how other women’s lives were destroyed, and what was lost to the general public as a result, will be discussed during this tour—a walk through women’s history from the Middle Ages to the present.
