Wo die Post abgeht!


Explanation:
This is simply a place where you can have a whale of a time, great fun and where one event (in this case music act) follows hot on the heels of the other! During the "Donauinselfest" the Donauinsel itself turns exactly in a place like this. I hope this will serve you as a helpful hint.
