Hubertus Hohenlohe presented his latest artworks recently at the viennese Museum of the 21. Century (21er Haus). The exclusive photo shoot was arranged by Eveline Eselböck – delegate of Relais & Châteaux Austria, Northern and Eastern Europe – for the campaign REVIVE, which will start an exhibition-tour through ten houses of the hotel group in summer 2015, reflecting the essence of hospitality and slow hosting. The star photographer Hubertus von Hohenlohe captured vivid portraits with prominent Relais & Châteaux hotel guests and their hosts. Being an Pop Art fan, it was love on first sight, when I saw the colorful, shiny and friendly photographs, while I enjoyed probably the best partycatering by Taubenkobel with the most delicious Rosé Zweigelt (far better, than the champagnes with famous names IMHO) from the Demeter winery Matthias Hager from the Mollands-Kamptal area and got entertained by the talented Mercedes Echerer (video):
Very inspired by art and food I took the opportunity to relive that colorful experience by taking a day off and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the cosmopolitan haven in the charming Burgenland Village Schützen. The weather couldn’t be more perfect and the sunlight gave that romantic scenery the icing on the cake.
This charming 19th century vintner’s house is dedicated to well-being, the appreciation of art and love of the surrounding nature of the Pannonian lowlands. The remarkable cuisine of Chef Alain Weissgerber will enchant your palate. Created in 1984, the former farm hosts not only one of the best culinary addresses but is also a romantic hotel, a grocery store in the middle of a beautiful garden that will seduce you.

Long time ‚Windows of Vienna‘-readers are familiar with my pleasure, spending our free days in the state Burgenland around Lake Neusiedl and the wedding anniversary habit to spend the recurring event near the wedding location. This years choice was another romantic highlight on our yearly Burgenland-list. Enjoy the photographs from my lunch at the Taubenkobel Grocery Store. An organic heaven with the greatest regional meals freshly prepared just for you. And when you are finished with your meal, there are waiting hundreds of little products curated like a colorful poem for your kitchen at home. I wish I had more free weekdays to visit this place more often.
This is truly the Art of Hospitality!
