The Seitzergasse in Vienna’s first district cordially invited to have a picnic and hang out with friends and family over two weekends this summer.
BRING YOUR OWN or PICK UP YOUR PICNIC BASKET: you can buy baskets for two people with a variety of fillings just around the corner at bakeries and restaurants as well as at the Café Am Hof by the Park Hyatt Vienna. Drinks are provided by the Meinl pop-up bar in the Tuchlaubenhof and by the Veuve Clicquot truck on Seitzergasse. Fun is guaranteed by a foosball table, and live acts and DJs promise entertainment – hosted by 98.3 Superfly. Brand new: the painting corner for children by Plastic House and hipp popsicle-cocktails by Schleck Druff from Berlin. Grass, cushions, blankets, cutlery, baskets you can have filled: we will supply you with all of the above on site. #picnicinthecity
For all those who missed the picnic, we made a note of what went on both on- and offstage:
- Starting at 6 a.m. on Saturday, it took seven hours to set everything up.
- 550 square metres of turf were unfurled to create a genuinely urban picnic atmosphere and 150 cushions and blankets were put in place so that people could lounge in comfort.
- In the bright sunshine temperatures climbed over the course of Saturday to well above 30 degrees.
- Café Am Hof, Meinl am Graben, Schwarzes Kameel, Fabios, Gösser Bierklinik, Aida and Mann compiled a menu of 10 picnic baskets, each with different contents.
- Guests had the choice to either bring their own basket with them or buy a pre-prepared one on-site – more than 200 such picnic baskets were emptied.
- Beats were provided by live acts like jazz musician Lukas Krenn, ANgel Tarpov (Cello), Emily Kolbert (singersongwriter), Kathy Fields (Ukulele) as well as the DJs hosted by 98,3 Superfly.
- Drinks were available at the Meinl pop-up bar in the Tuchlaubenhof and from the Veuve Clicquot truck on Seitzergasse.
- To cool off in Saturday’s heat, people headed to the ice-cold popsicle-cocktails by Schleck Druff from Berlin.
- Children’s corner hosted by Plastic House.
- On Sunday it took five hours to take down the scenery.
