27 April until 5 November 2017
THE MAGIC OF THE ANCIENT ORIENT
The Orient is considered the epitome of exoticism and adventure. Magnificent palaces and mosques, magical empires, precious fabrics, exquisite spices and aromas — all of these created great enthusiasm for the Orient and inspired the thinking and imagination of the Occident for many centuries.
Knights, monks and chroniclers, traders, adventurers and story tellers reached the Middle East starting with the Crusades in the 11th and 12th centuries — scarcely any of them were able to resist the fascination of this sensuous, alien world.
The Orient was depicted as a desirable land of luxury and good living in Europe of the 18th and 19th centuries. This phenomenon of orientalism inspired broad areas of occidental art, architecture and literature.
An intricately designed oriental bazaar, a mysterious harem and hundreds of precious exhibits from all areas of oriental culture bring “The Magic of the Orient” to life again for visitors to Halbturn Palace.
The exhibition is open from 27 April until 5 November 2017, Tuesday to Sunday and on public holidays between 10am and 6pm.
A DAY AT HALBTURN CASTLE
Schloss Halbturn and its baroque park are just 45 minutes from Vienna and Eisenstadt. The site’s culinary and cultural offering make it a great place to take a day trip, any time of year! You can also recover here after a shopping trip to the designer outlet in Parndorf, which is only 15 minutes from Halbturn.
Combine your time at the exhibition with a trip to the “Antikes und Wein” wine store, or enjoy the excellent cuisine of the Knappenstöckl restaurant. Please contact us for your individual program at kulturverein [at] schlosshalbturn [dot] com.
