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):

One Day in Milan: On the roof terrace of Milan Cathedral

I didn’t expect, what I found, when I arrived on the top of the Duomo di Santa Maria Nascente.  The walls are decorated with more than 2,000 sculptures and 135 pinnacles and they are all within reach, at least you think they are. It didn’t matter, that the weather wasn’t clear, because there was so much to admire right in front of you.

I can’t believe that it took me so long to explore this miracle of architecture on the third largest church of the world.

And I could have stayed there for hours, but as it was a daytrip, and we decided to have some true italian shopping and a bit dolce far niente with dolci too.

So what would be better than visit the Faliero Sarti boutique?  And it didn’t take me long to make the decision. Still fascinated by the aging stone and marble shades of the Cathedral it had to be this one:
