Hardly any other city can offer such an interesting and so wide a variety of cultural events. Vienna's music scene is world-known. Think about the Vienna Philharmonic, the Vienna Choir Boys, the Vienna State Opera. In Vienna there is a living concert scene that offers classic as well as modern music on the highest level. Experimental theatre is also presented here along with performances of classic theatre. Many are also interested in ballet or in modern dance. The museum collections naturally have world value as, for example, the graphic collection in the Albertina. Vienna is a city that takes care of its traditions, and allows the modern to gain an even larger status.
Our school in Vienna organises programs for your free time in Vienna, because we think that it is very important for you to also learn something about Vienna, about Austria, and also about the Austrian and German cultures. These extracurricular activities give you a chance to practise your German and to make friends.
Some examples of our leisure time program:
Lectures about Vienna - With the support of Video-Film Vienna, we offer each month information about the city's history, the interesting points for sightseeing, and about what life is like in Vienna.
City Walks - Apart from the normal tourist sites, you will see a special side of Vienna. We will take you through the small, old streets of the inner city, show you some hidden treasures, and tell you stories and tales that you will not find in any travel book. Walk with us down the Ringstrasse, looking for traces of Mozart and Beethoven, or discover with us the rest of the ruins of the Roman settlement, Vindobona.
Tours through museums and other famous buildings - We organize tours for you through Vienna's interesting museums - the Art History Museum, the Jewish Museum, the History Museum of the City of Vienna - and through the Vienna State Opera, and the Parliament.
Viennese waltz Evening - What is more typical for Vienna than a Viennese waltz? We invite you to spin around in time. Several times a year, we arrange a dance evening for you where even the less enthusiastic dancers will see how much fun it is to move to the melodies of Johann Strauss. And, of course, those who really work up a sweat on the dancefloor will have the chance to have something to drink.
Alpha's Cross Culture Evenings - A popular meeting place of students and former students. In a relaxed atmosphere you practise the German language, meet new friends and get in contact with various cultures and nationalities.
Excursions near Vienna - Also, the surroundings of Vienna have a lot to offer. Join us for a trip to the Wachau, to the Melk monastery, to Neusiedler Lake, or to Klosterneuburg where Emperor Karl VI built an especially magnificent monastery.
