How much of what we consume is still produced in Vienna? During a bus tour from Liesing to Simmering, experts explain why the strengthening of the manufacturing sector is so important for sustained urban development.

The excursion starts at Az W. Approaching one of Austria’s biggest connected industrial/production areas, the Standpunkt Liesing, Andrés Peña, head of the local quarter management, will speak about his work as well as the significance the Europan competition and the program “Fachkonzept Produktive Stadt” has for the site.

One of our main stops is magdas Küche. This large scale kitchen is processing food for facilities such as schools and retirement homes. Magdas Küche is part of magdas, the social business line of Caritas that delivers jobs for people who are otherwise facing problems being integrated in the labor market. During our visit we will get insights into the production process and will hear about the special qualities of the building in terms of the topics reuse and recycle.
