Vienna Media News 03/2019 My Vienna: Insider tips from drag queen Die Tiefe Kümmernis

Die Tiefe Kümmernis has been giving tours of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna in drag for two years now. Her queer take on the famous museum’s masterpieces is always in high demand, and her tours are often sold out.

My favorite place:

Lazy Life is a queer feminist café-bar that offers a packed schedule of different events. Inclusive and politically engaged, and a very welcoming vibe. My absolute feel good oasis.

Lazy Life, Burggasse 44, 1070 Vienna,

My culture tip:

Definitely the Kunsthistorisches Museum, and not just because I give tours there. Alongside all those old masters, there is also a major exhibition of Mark Rothko’s work this spring. We are also planning a wide-ranging programme in honor of EuroPride!

My community tip:

With its support services, free spaces, courses and events, the Türkis Rosa Lila Villa is the leading institution for politically-active LGBT people in Vienna.

My food tip:

I LOVE burritos!! And Max & Benito has the best ones. I go there at least once a week. Fresh, healthy, great value, delicious – what more could you wish for?

My shopping tip:

There are two queer bookstores in Vienna that I can really recommend: feminist ChickLit and Löwenherz, which has a gay and lesbian focus. Both are renowned for their excellent launches and readings.
