Route 28: Travel through Europe without skipping town on May 6th

Route 28 is happening on May 6th! This isn’t just a highway out of the American East Coast. It’s an idea uniting Europe in the middle of Vienna.  Choose one of seven different routes that allow you to explore different countries in Europe, all in one afternoon.

Starting at 13:00 in the courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier, choose your travel group, and your guide for the day will lead you from country to country, all dispersed throughout the city.  Although many stations will be hosted in German, this will be a hands on experience that will break language barriers, and why we at METROPOLE want to share it with you! The three routes where you will need limited German are marked with an *

There will be seven routes:

For Epicureans– go to Germany, France and Poland for a poetry slam, games and pierogi!

For the Movers and Shakers– go to Belgium, Ireland and the Czech Republic. Draw a larger than life comic, play a pub quiz in Ireland and learn some Czech through theatre.

*For the whole family- go to Holland, Switzerland and Portugal. Go biking, learn to yodel and embroider your own carpet.

*For the Actors and Actresses– go to the UK, Spain and Hungary! Discover classic dry humor, attend a Spanish concert with Clara Blume and explore being home and standing with young Hungarian actors.
