Where does a Swiss takes his treasure? To a bank, of course. Just like Stephan his Marco. And Marco his Stephan. For one and a half years now, the incumbent Mr. Gay Switzerland and his biggest fan have been a couple. They're in Vienna to party at the Arena and in Café Savoy, dine at the Naschmarkt and enjoy the imposing architecture. Of the POST SAVINGS BANK, for example.

PARTICIPATE NOW

One temple. Two men. Three words: I love you. In long-distance relationships, shared moments such as these are even more precious. Each one should last forever. We've already discovered so many beautiful places in Vienna together: The Prater, the Karlskirche (Church of St. Charles), the THESEUS TEMPLE. This city is made for lovers!

PARTICIPATE NOW

A life without fun? That's unthinkable for us! Where better to celebrate our fiftieth birthdays together than in the PRATER in Vienna? We have often read that Vienna is one of the most livable cities in the world. We also sensed right away that it must be something quite special to live here. We'll be back again soon.

PARTICIPATE NOW

It isn't all that easy for two men to embrace each other in the north of England. That's why hugging each other here in the middle of the Pride Village on Vienna's City Hall Square is something very special for us. Just like the Gay Pride we've come here for. Everything is so magical here: the people, the food, the architecture. We'll definitely try to come again at Christmas and visit the Christmas market on CITY HALL SQUARE.

PARTICIPATE NOW

We are standing today where the emperor's family used to greet the spring. Two women, one family. Our little one is only a few months old, but we're already so proud of her. Here eyes sparkle like the morning dew here in SCHÖNBRUNN PALACE PARK. Vienna is so wonderful. So many enchanting houses and lanes. There's nothing like this in the Ruhr area. We also want to go and take a look at Schönbrunn Palace later on.

PARTICIPATE NOW

Opposites attract? Not always. We are alike in so many ways and complement each other in many more. The same music, the same literature. And we also have the same dream: to one day look at the sea together from our stone house. We’re currently looking at Vienna together with our friends. After which we’ll go to our living room of the moment: ZUR HERKNERIN.

PARTICIPATE NOW

Behind us is the most dangerous predator of all time. Within us, the nicest pastime: love. We are a T-Rex and a Triceratops who love silence. And how often have we thought: “Perhaps we'll live here.” Sometimes, we also smuggle our own food inside, in order to feel even more at home. By the way, this is the NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM in Vienna.

PARTICIPATE NOW

We were introduced to each other by friends. It was love at last sight and yet so captivating in advance. You fall in love with someone, and don’t know where it will all lead. In our case, almost as far as Russia. We are now a Viennese couple that lives its love in new places every day … often watching the sky at night in the URANIA OBSERVATORY, deep in self-contemplation.

PARTICIPATE NOW

The day is not always our best friend. Well, you know: don’t fancy getting up, don’t fancy going to the university and definitely don’t fancy working. Yet at some point, the night draws us in, we sample its nectar. The morning after is the best: we go out onto the streets and extend our feelers toward Vienna. And land in the BUTTERFLY HOUSE.

PARTICIPATE NOW

We often screen our own film. Then it’s just about us, about us in the chairs, about the pleasant darkness of the room. The spectacle on the screen is a side-show, the main roles are performed by us. The title is: “Our kisses in the Filmcasino.” Then the lights go on. And once again we’re in the FILMCASINO.

PARTICIPATE NOW

Our first kiss was here in Vienna. On the steps in front of the MAK, to be precise. We simply had to kiss each other, standing on the staircase, instantly in love, hoping for everything and expecting nothing. And although one of us works as a designer in Paris, our city of love is Vienna. There’s space for us here and everything we like. The AMALIENBAD pool, for example.

PARTICIPATE NOW

Barcelona, Florence, London, San Francisco. We saw the world during our studies. And read the world. Our apartment in San Francisco was a giant, walk-in book. We’re now back in Vienna and spend most of our time reading aloud in the children’s room. Although the Grand Hall of the NATIONAL LIBRARY always provides us with the best reasons for going on a new reading trip.

PARTICIPATE NOW
