The story of the Neidhart Fresken


We have told you stories about places that were sort of forgotten and discovered again. Maybe you are curious and want to see one of those places. If yes, you should visit the “Neidhart Fresken” (Neidhart Frescoes). You see, in 1979 a flat was being refurbished in the city center and during this work plaster covering the walls was removed and… frescos were found! The Neidhart Fresken date back to the 15th century and decorated what used to be a private dance hall. The frescos represent scenes inspired by songs from the 12th and 13th centuries and they can be still seen today because half of the time they were covered by plaster. This location is part of the Vienna museum and although it is a small place it is impressive! (Cr).
