Jobs, Hope and La Lengua

Tied snugly into her apron and Dirndl, balancing plates of Schnitzel and mugs of house-brewed beer, Estela Muñoz is a journalist disguised as a waitress, having found a job in Vienna using the English and Spanish that had gotten her nowhere at home.

Fall at the MuseumsQuartier is dedicated to new styles.

The sun has just set and your Schnitzel and Sommer Spritzer are settling in, revitalising the sparkle in your eyes after a long day, pulling up the corners of your mouth.
