European Heritage Day #1
Last Sunday was "Tag des Denkmals", the Austrian version of the European Heritage Days. The aim of this day is to widen access and foster care for architectural and environmental heritage. The annual programme offers opportunities to visit buildings, monuments and sites many of which normally are not accessible to the public. I went to see the federal sculptors' studios in the Prater. The two buildings, designed by Austrian architect Carl Hasenauer, are the only remains of the 1873 Vienna World's Fair.
