Social Activities

Optional - Concert & Dinner at the Old Campus

Thu, 28.07.2016, 18.00

As a highlight of the Joint Conference EAVA & WAHVM 2016 we will organise an evening at the historical campus of the University of Veterinary Medicine in downtown Vienna.

Since 1777 the Old Campus served as the center of veterinary medicine in Austria and was Alma Mater for thousands of veterinary students. Due to the restricted spatial capacities of the old buildings, along with increasing numbers of students, since the 1960s a translocation to new buildings became an inevitable necessity. In 1996, all institutes and clinics moved to the new and more spacious campus on the other side of the Danube – nowadays an emerging district with good infrastructure. The Old Campus is now home to the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna where the old clinics, stables and lecture rooms are revitalized with music.

The evening will provide the opportunity for a guided tour around the Old Campus that will deliver insights into the architecture, the history and the new function of the old buildings. Subsequently an orchestra will give an exclusive concert for veterinarians including some of the highlights of Viennese music as well as references to animals. After the concert dinner and drinks will be served either outside in the court or in the vestibule, dependent on weather conditions. For sure we will spend a pleasant summer evening in great atmosphere.

The event includes the guided tours, the concert as well as dinner and drinks.

Please note that this evening programme is optional and not covered by the registration fee. Pre-registration including payment is necessary as the number of participants is limited. Pre-registration can be conducted during the registration process and will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
