Vienna Goes Vertical in Trafalgar Square

By Theneonhub @theneonhub

Icons of Vienna were literally turned on their side on October 25-26, when the Vienna Tourist Board built the biggest structure ever erected in Trafalgar Square.

The 21m high wall was built to create a spectacular vertical show and public challenge in London over two days. The dramatic acrobatics show played on the wall right in front of Nelson’s Column four times daily – a daring celebration of traditional and modern Viennese culture while suspended in the air.

Mixing art, sound, lights and adventurous aerial displays, the show took inspiration from Vienna’s modern music scene, imperial heritage, iconic artist Gustav Klimt, from its indulgent food and wine scene as well as the Viennese waltz. Demonstrating Vienna’s renowned electronic music scene, DJ DEF Mike was DJing in the square.
