“It was a sensation when, in 1979, workers discovered Vienna’s oldest secular wall paintings during the restoration of the building at Tuchlauben 19. They were created around 1407 as the ornate decorations of wealthy cloth merchant Michel Menschein’s private dance and banquet hall. The lively images represent songs by the composer Neidhart von Reuental (ca. 1180-1240). They tell of love and feasts as well as the tensions between various social strata during a time of massive social change. Neidhart’s tradition of song remained alive and came to a new efflorescence one hundred years later. It was the jester Neidhart Fuchs who expanded the repertoire brought it to the Habsburg court. His tomb can still be viewed at the south side of St. Stephens. Neidhart plays remained popular until well into the 15th century – the wall painting’s period of creation – and may well have served as their inspiration. The bustling scenes of the wall paintings are accompanied by a new permanent exhibit designed for all ages but particularly appropriate for schools. The new presentation affords fascinating insights into everyday life in medieval Vienna, highlighting music and dance, fashion and food. The history of the building and the wall paintings and their restoration form another focus of the exhibit. **Free of Charge (FOC) if you go there on the first Sunday of the Month.”

“Favoritenstraße in the 10th district is a long shopping street. Near the main train station --there's lots of fast food outlets and cosy cafes and bars ,prices here are more the norm here as opposed to the more touristic districts of Vienna ,the architecture is also quite cool ,a mix of modern and old,very photogenic. A long street,an eclectic area and most definitely well worth checking out.”
