Community College EXCURSION

With guests and residents, Initiated by Ursula Gaisbauer

This second stroll leads us to Neu Brasilien (“New Brazil”) a gardening association at the Old Danube. The allotment was founded by Florian Berndl, a naturopath, who propagated and practiced moving from the city to nature and made bathing popular. We take the site as occasion to explore historical and current connections between Austria and Brazil. 200 years ago Maria Leopoldine Josepha Caroline of Austria went to Brazil and became, by her political fate, its empress. If we are lucky we might meet Paulino who left Brazil in the 1960s to come to Vienna for a career as football player.

Limited admission. Please register in advance:

The exact meeting point will be communicated following the registration.
