Lazy bees?

On 8 March we will celebrate Vienna Bee Day with a honey tasting and information event in front of Vienna City Hall. However, visitors should not get up their hopes of receiving a visit from the bees living in the roof of the NHM Vienna. According to city beekeeper Felix Munk, bees are “a bit lazy and don’t fly any further than they have to”. Never mind, the nearby Volksgarten park and the many ivy-covered buildings close to the museum mean that there is still plenty of pollen for them to collect in the vicinity! The honey they make is on sale in the NHM Shop.
