Az W and hdgö are offering a joint guided tour with the curator’s of both exhibitions. How do people’s ideas of the countryside shape holidays between summer retreats and sports tourism, and how does tourism reshape the landscape? The focus is on popular destinations — towns, countryside and lakes — how they are invented, how they develop and what this means for infrastructure, land consumption and the housing market.

Combi-guided tour “Stadt-Land-See”: Thu 25.04., 18:00–20:00
The tour starts at 18:00 at the Az W and ends at the hdgö in the Neue Burg on Heldenplatz.
Ticket: € 15 (incl. admission to both institutions)

Running parallel to ‘Toourism’, the exhibition ‘Holidays in Austria. Reinventing a Tourist Destination’ is on show at the House of Austrian History on Heldenplatz (14.03.2024–06.01.2025), which sheds light on the development of Austria as a major tourist destination.
Combi-ticket Az W & hdgö: € 12
