The Mozart Fellas

Art imitates life or is it the other way around with the Mozzart Fellas? You be the judge!

Head over and rock at the Graben. Being one of Vienna’s oldest and most famous streets, mostly leisure and souvenir shops open their gates at this location. Walk across it and look up: the renowned Viennese Stephansdom lies ahead! Just before the entrance there are friendly looking guys dressed in red and golden jackets. Who are they? Besides sporting the mysterious yet appealing fashion of faux-18th century these folk sell real tickets for classical music concerts. It’s up to you to buy a ticket or not. Be that as it may, you should definitely ask the guys to pose for a picture with you. A truly authentic Viennese souvenir! PS: the wig-season starts in May. Then the Mozart-guys wear real Mozart-wigs.
