Putting kids to work


Well I’m about to spend my second day in a row at the Rathaus, Vienna’s gothic style City Hall. The reason being the free children’s play event in which they get to spend their time ‘working’ in a variety of jobs from banking and tax collecting through to park maintenance and construction, with roles such as postal worker, waiter or librarian to be undertaken along the way.

This is so popular with H and her friends that they were on the go doing different jobs from 10am when the event opened through to closing time at 5pm.

Whilst down at City Hall we took a lunch break and strolled into the platz in front of the building where, at this time of year you, can sit and have lunch from temporary restaurants providing food from all quarters of the world.

The Rathausplatz is also hosts a summer open air film festival  which I never seem to have time to go and enjoy.
