Visit the Sacher Cafe, enjoy music and movies, and find out the truth about "The Sound of Music"

Did you always want to see all three Sissy movies in a day? And how about taking a picture with your sweetheart on a park bench with Klimt's famous painting "The Kiss" as a backdrop? The AUSTRIA POP-UP STORE at the Openhouse Gallery in NOLITA, which opens its doors from October 5 - 19, offers this, and a lot more. 

You will be able to experience true Viennese coffeehouse culture at the temporary Sacher Café, find out what is fact and what is fiction in the not-so-Austrian-after-all musical Sound of Music, and get a first glimpse of the “Kunstkammer”, an Imperial World of Wonders reopening at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna in 2012. SWAROVSKI CRYSTAL WORLDS will add sparkle with displays of some of their crystal masterpieces. Musical highlights include the TALEA ENSEMBLE performing Austrian classical and contemporary music ranging from Franz Schubert to Olga Neuwirth, or Theremin "Queen" Dorit Chrysler.

On Wednesday, October 19th from 7 – 9 p.m., Advantage Austria will join forces with the Austrian Tourist Office , which coordinates the event, and the Austrian Wine Marketing Board and host “A Taste of Austria” – a culinary journey through Austria, sampling the creations of New York's celebrated Austrian chefs Kurt Gutenbrunner (Wallsé, Blaue Gans, Café Sabarsky, Café Kristall), Wolfgang Ban & Edi Frauneder (Seasonal, Edi & The Wolf), Erwin Schrottner & Andrew Chase (Café Katja), and Heidi Riegler (Vienna Cookie Company), and a selection of over 40 different Austrian wines including Austria's signature grapes, Grüner Veltliner, Blaufränkisch, and Zweigelt.
