From picnic to top-class cuisine

Numerous other events will be held throughout the city during the festival. For example, there'll be a big picnic in the Augarten from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm on 27 May. Visitors will find picnic baskets filled with regional delicacies waiting for them there, as well as music and an entertainment program for the whole family.
