You wouldn't be here if you weren't curious.*

Hi! I'm Elena! Welcome to my travel blog Creativelena.com.
For me, it is all about “life-seeing instead of sightseeing”: Join me as I create, eat & live my way around the world. Curious?

*Check out my book, “The Creative Traveler’s Handbook”, for learning more about what we mean by creative travel. Travelling means the world to me, makes me fit for everday life and sometimes, I trust, also calmer on the inside. Read this blog with a smile, share what you love and remember to check back regularly: After all, when was the last time you did something for the first time?

#BadenInWeiss: White Summer Party in the Imperial City of Baden near Vienna

“We knew straight away that we wanted to welcome you in Baden on this very weekend”, Klaus Lorenz tells us. Klaus is head of tourism of the city of Baden and always up for a joke (or two). He really enjoys hosting us to the splendour of his city, a city known for its imperial charm far across the regional borders.


The annual celebration #BadenInWeiss is unique in the whole of Austria. More than 30.000 guests take to the streets of an imperial city that has not lost a single ounce of its charm of old.

“This weekend, a special law passes”, Klaus tells us with a wink. “The party officially continues until 2.00 a.m.!” We laugh and join the party, all dressed in white: My friends & fellow travel writers from Germany & Austria are clearly enjoying themselves to #BadenInWeiss too. Baden beckons gourmet travellers, complete with a short Kaiserschmarren-Demo (yes!), a foodie hike through the famous Vienna Forests, chillaxing at the historic Roman Spa or at Baden Beach (!), Dinner & Casino as well as a most beautiful picnic in the rose garden of Baden. The so-called “Rosarium” is home to more than 30.000 single roses! “That’s just as many visitors as Baden welcomes on this weekend”, I think to myself, smiling, while enjoying the way my light summer dress floats around my hips. At almost 40°C, I am really grateful for the city’s motto #BadenInWeiss, and ever so impressed by the white, happy vibes. Check this out.
