Vice Chancellor Dr. Michael Spindelegger has opened the 59th international gardening festival in Tulln and praised the impressive floral arrangements at what is now Europe’s biggest flower show.

The designers come up with a wide variety of subjects from the Roman through to Baroque and Judendstil, Renaissance and Gothic, the Middle Ages through to ancient Egypt and even the 70s. Every prominent was of course the flower power generation and the Woodstock Festival.
