Donauinselfest 2021: To the palace by bus
What are the challenges of driving a tour bus?
If you know your way around Vienna and are an experienced bus driver, you’re already well on track. Some of the places that we drive to are pretty extraordinary, such as the Ceremonial Courtyard in Schloss Schönbrunn. A sightseeing bus isn’t usually allowed to drive there. This is a real highlight for me because when I normally drive a bus I don’t get the chance to practice how to drive into a park.
Can you tell us about some disasters or other anecdotes?
All I can say is: What happens on the bus, stays on the bus :)
Super atmosphere at the Central Cemetery
What are the highlights of this year’s programme?
I’m looking forward to working with our team of moderators Birgit Denk and Roman Gregory. It was already hilarious last year on board with Roman. In terms of music I’d rather not say because, even if it’s not my sound, the mood is still always great. In terms of locations, I’m really looking forward to the Central Cemetery, which I’m driving to this year for the very first time. It’s going to host a Falco tribute. But Ernst Molden and Hans Theessink are also giving a concert together there in front of the church. They’re singing Wienerlieder and English-language country songs, which I think is a really cool mix. In terms of location, Schloss Schönbrunn remains my absolute highlight. When else can you drive a bus through the grounds of a palace?
