Karlstag: discover art at Karlsplatz


Today the thirteenth day “Karlstag” is celebrated: the joint festival of art and culture houses at Karlsplatz offers a comprehensive program throughout the day. Admission to private tours, children’s workshops, and outdoor concerts is free.

The campaign is “a very good opportunity to learn about the many art and culture houses and initiatives around Karlsplatz,” assures city advisor for culture Veronica Kaup-Hassler (SPÖ). The seven-hour “Herr Karl MegaTour” program runs from 11:00 a.m. to all cultural institutions around the square, while the open-air program begins at 12:00 p.m. in the pond in front of the Karlskirche.

Interested parties can touch the keys of the open piano here. A varied family program will follow from 2 pm. In the park there are children’s art workshops and introductory performances for aspiring rappers and skaters.
