From Austria’s oldest City to Castle Tillysburg

In the middle of June, coordinators Anne Thun-Hohenstein and Clarissa Mayer-Heinisch organised a tour to Upper Austria. After a guided tour through the center of Enns – Austria’s oldest city – and a visit of its famous basilica the group of WA members and friends continued to the “Paneum”. The museum for bread is a modern architectural highlight¬† designed by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU. Its many arts and culture objects from the last 9000 years tell the history of bread from its invention to its diversity of today.

From there, the group drew a few kilometres to reach the Castle Tillysburg. Georg Spiegelfeld, the owner of the estate, welcomed them and all enjoyed a light lunch before heading back to Vienna. During the bus ride Andreas Habsburg took the Occasion for some interesting, impromptu remarks on the region’s history, which added another highlight to an already very enriching day.
