Other highlights from the afternoon

The courtyard of Grønningen 5, nicely decorated with red-white-red Austrian and Danish colours, was the perfect setting for a friendly summer reception. Sunshine, a light breeze, perfectly chilled Austrian Sekt from Szigeti , Austrian delicacies prepared by Max Steiner-Rode and musical entertainment made a perfect afternoon.

The musical entertainment was performed by Nazide Aylin , a young Austrian singer with an ear catching repertoire as well as by Rosario from Brazil who played bossa nova on the day of the kick off for the 2014 Soccer World Championship in Brazil. The musical entertainment even lead to cheerful dancing in the courtyard.
