Visit of a Delegation from the Austrian Consulate General,          Los Angeles: March 11-15, 2015:

Speaking for the Austrian Community of the greater Seattle area I want to express gratitude to the Austrian Consulate General, Los Angeles, for extending a complete consulate service during the Amtstage March 12-13, 2015. The huge demand showed how much appreciated this service was. Especially we want to thank Ms. Andrea Mais-Siffert for her patient, helpful and professional support to Austrians to get their “paper work” in order.

Busy days included a meeting with the Lt. Governor Brad Owen who arranged thoughtfully that the Austrian Flag was raised during our visit at the Capitol. Trade Commissioner Dr. Rudolf Thaler joined to emphasize the importance of in the economic exchange between Austria and Washington State.

The Österreicher Dinner at the Salmon House was a lovely evening where we could get to know our Honorable Consul General Ulrike Ritzinger.

A luncheon on Friday provided GC Ritzinger the opportunity to meet with other members of the Consular Association of Washington.

Definitely the highlight of this visit was the presence of GC Ritzinger at the 15th Viennese Ball. Her charming, yet natural personality was admired and no icebreaker was needed for many to talk to her, get a photo shoot, or even to dance with her. She brought a piece of “Heimat” to the Northwest.

Herzlichen Dank!

Many thanks to the  Austria Club of Washington for the wonderful

15th Viennese Ball.

It was an elegant, enjoyable evening with a delicious dinner, performances by musical talents and the USA dance team, and a lot of fun with the polonaise and the tries of a quadrille. Dancing to live music until midnight guaranteed a "rauschende Ballnacht". The presence of our Consul General and other Honorary Consuls  played tribute to the 200th anniversary of the "Wiener Kongress" emphasizing the cultural outreach of this fine Viennese tradition.

Looking already forward to next year!


Please mark your calender for the next event organized by the Austria Club,  Maifest, May 16!
