My name is Borimira and I have been working at the reception in Austria Classic Hotel Wien since 2022. Today I am taking you to Donaustadt, the 22nd district in Vienna, to the enchanting new Harry Potter exhibition in the Metastadt.
Whether you are a Harry Potter fan or not, the current exhibition in Vienna is worth a visit, especially if you have children. You can easily spend a few hours there and enjoy the interactive activities. From the very beginning, the exhibition immerses you in the universe of the wizarding world. You can take part in interesting activities and earn points for your Hogwarts house.
The exhibit includes costumes and props from the Harry Potter films and from “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. There are fun facts to read to keep parents interested and fun games to join in for the kids to keep the visit exciting and entertaining. You will see many of the most popular locations from the wizarding world.
You can walk through the classrooms of Hogwarts and even the Ministry of Magic, or visit Harry's closet under the stairs. At the end of the exhibition there is a large shop where you can buy your favorite Harry Potter merchandise or a souvenir to take home. Overall, it's an interesting experience for kids that won't bore adults either.
You can easily reach the Metastadt by public transport. With the U1 to Kagran, then with the tram 25 to Erzherzog-Karl-Strasse and then a few more minutes on foot. I wish you a magical visit!
