Finding myself currently living outside of Vienna, I sometimes find myself wanting to know what is going on in the beautiful imperial capital that I had called home for so long; and reading your magazine’s articles has me longing to come back and experience everything from a wonderful Sunday afternoon all to myself, to being able to browse endlessly through antique shops, or simply explore a new art show. Thank you for making Metropole my small home away from home.

Your faithful reader,

After the holidays, I have some time to offer my comments, and to a greater extent my thanks, on your efforts at Metropole.
As a U.S. expat from the Midwest, I find that there are so many things to see and do in and around Vienna that lack an adequate, that is, English, description regarding the details of the event and guidance on how to make it happen. I am a year and one half into my two-year Viennese/European adventure. Your magazine has proven to be an excellent resource on what one could be doing, whether I am planning hours, days, or weeks in advance. It is simply the right information in a format that can be understood by any English speaker.
When we have guests visiting us, yours is among the top souces we recommend reviewing ahead of time. There is always something that is just what the doctor ordered. Most recently we discovered A Christmas Carol. A perfect cure for a little Christmas-related home sickness. And, “Vienna This Week,” ensures nothing worthwhile is missed. The Food & Drink and City Life articles are another favorite. This information is good for the expat and the visitor want a little more local flavor explained in his
native tongue.
One need not be liberal to enjoy Vienna and the arts, and the same goes for your efforts at Metropole. However, I will admit your political opinions have a thumb on the scale to one side. Regardless, Metropole supports me in my quest to be impressed or entertained with all that Vienna has to offer. I imagine the same holds true for countless others. Please do keep up the good work.

Best regards,

It was a very pleasant surprise to see an interview with Nychos on your latest issue! Being involved with art, and more specifically street art in Vienna, I consider him to be one of the best artists of this generation. It is very exciting to see a talented artist that is helping propagate a different and less known side of Austrian culture to the rest of the world featured on Metropole! Good job!
