Vienna, Austria (Réseau Art Nouveau Network, EUSDR)
"Strolling along the Viennese Naschmarkt stimulate the senses: I love to discover the unbelievable diversity of food, to experience new tastes and smells, to chat with the market traders... Mostly every visit ends up in front of the three Wienzeile apartment houses built by Otto Wagner. Clad with floral tiles and impressive golden ornaments, the buildings in Art Nouveau style draw everyone's attention from afar.
Together with Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Koloman Moser, Otto Wagner left his marks all around the city. Vienna celebrates the hundredth anniversary of their death this year: Is there any better moment to discover their heritage?"
