Herz Fest – An International Block Party

A huge thank you to all those who attended Metropole’s Herz Fest – An International Block Party!

On September 10, we celebrated our award-winning reporting project “Home Is Where the Herz Is,” which showcases Vienna’s 10 largest communities with roots abroad.

Even more, though, we celebrated the diversity of Vienna, our city, so amazingly well represented by our contributors, readers and guests. More than 40% of the Viennese have either moved here themselves in recent years and decades or have close relatives who did so in their lifetime – one of the highest shares of all big European cities and higher even than that of New York City.

We took some amazing photos throughout the evening – you are welcome to download any!

As the voice of Vienna’s international community, it’s always humbling to see our work resonate with each of you. You and your loved ones are why we make Metropole – and we need your support to keep doing what we do best.
