Vienna’s public open air Film Festival

Vienna’s public open air Film Festival offers classical and modern cultural highlights in front of City Hall in Vienna until September 1st. It’s not just about sitting in front of a huge screen and watching concerts and operas. There’s also a decent food court featuring 26 restaurants and food outlets open daily from 11am ’til midnight. But not a sign of fast food in sight, as all dishes will be freshly prepared. The emphasis is on foods of organic origin from the region.

Close to the underground stations Rathaus (U2) and Volkstheater (U3/U2) it’s easy to reach within 25 minutes from any wombat’s CITY HOSTEL in Vienna. If you don’t make it to Vienna by September maybe you’d like to visit Viennale, Vienna’s most famous Film Festival.

Festival of Lights in Berlin

Berlin glows! Famous landmarks, cultural monuments, historical buildings, streets and other locations including Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and the radio tower are literally being highlighted during Berlin´s Festival of Lights. It takes place between the 5th and the 14th of October 2018.

Summer is over and autumn threatens to turn the whole city into a grey mass. This festival fights darkness and makes an effort to boost the city´s colours.

Taking place every october since 2005. The festival has turned into a magnet for visitors to Berlin. The Festival also includes various special events such as the arts and culture event “OpenCity“, the “LightRun”, “Jazz in the ministry gardens“ and Sunday sales in shopping centres. Besides, the Festival of Lights is also an active partner in charity events presented and organised by the “City Stiftung Berlin”.

Only the involvement of many people and partners made it possible to transform the Capital into a shining stage. That is why many individuals, companies, institutions and artists engage in this festival. Social commitment and entrepreneurship have been essential for the Festival of Lights from it´s very beginning. The Festival of Lights supports the City Foundation Berlin since 2005 and thus, promotes charity projects. During the festival, the City Foundation Berlin presents an extensive charity program.

All sights are in easy reach from wombat´s CITY Hostels´ Berlin branch. From our amazing rooftop terrace you can even see some highlighted sights, such as the Fernsehturm on Alexanderplatz.

Luckily we offer 20% discount in October if stay for three nights or more. Book the offer here. Just use the promotion code: FALLING LEAVES
