Describe the Kilengi Gallery in one sentence.

The ideal place and source of inspiration for all those interested in African art and culture in Vienna.

What will be the highlight of Kilengi Gallery in 2021?

In October 2021, the Kilengi Gallery will have existed for 5 years since its corporate foundation, and many more years are to follow!

What should visitors definitely see at the Kilengi Gallery?

For all the beauty of individual pieces, it is the variety and overall effect of all the objects on display together that makes a visit worthwhile.

What else should you definitely see in Vienna besides Galerie Kilengi?

Apart from the well-known tourist highlights, I have a real insider tip for EasyCityPass visitors (my private favorite route for demanding walking ;-)):

From Nußdorferplatz in the 19th district (accessible by tram line D) via Eichelhofstraße on the Nußberg to Kahlenberg go up on foot (asphalted throughout, but goes steeply uphill in parts, so only suitable for reasonably fit walkers).

The path past vineyards and wine taverns with views of the city and the view from the top of the terrace on Kahlenberg are sensational and certainly unique in the world. Length estimated 4-5 km, walking time depending on fitness 40-60 min.

Finish the sentence - Typically Viennese is:

Dancing at balls in the winter (still a part of it for many) and enjoying a Heurigenjause and one (or more) Achterl G'spritzn (wine mixed with mineral or soda water) at the Heurigen in the guest garden in the summer.
