1-2/12/2018 Advent on the Blue River

The most humble Shire of Ad Flumen Caerulum invites you to a weekend full of joy and merriment from December 1st to December 2nd 2018. We are going to make Advent a party for everyone. Come over for a nice weekend with friends in Vienna.

On Saturday we will visit the medieval Christmas market at Heeresgeschichtliches Museum in garb (no entry fee). The market is popular with re-enactors and the public in general. There are several music acts as well as a fencing demo inside the museum throughout the day. The market is positioned right in front of the building with some of the stalls trickling into the museum itself. As a treat to visitors, the entrance fee is waived during the market, so you can tour the museum itself as well.

Afterwards we are going to cook and craft at Ellisa’s place in the west of Vienna. Learn how to make typical Austrian “Vanillekipferl” (vanilla crescents), have a mug of mulled wine or cider and get some work done on your current A&S project.

On Sunday we’ll visit the Pieter Bruegel exhibition at Kunsthistorisches Museum. Since the exhibition is quite popular, we will have to buy tickets well in advance, or we’ll not manage to be on the same admission spot. Please contact us by October 30 if you want to come along to the museum!

In the afternoon we will have an SCA-LARP Crossover Tavern with songs, games, food and drink at Tympanum Keller. You need not expect a crowd of rowdy orcs or hand-waving mages since we are advertising a low-fantasy/no-fantasy event for our LARP guests. We will offer a wide selection of period games and hope to get people into the mood for music. BYO instruments!

 

Crash Space can be arranged with Shire folk or we can help with booking accommodation.
