On the ship Regentag lived and worked the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser for several years. The name Regentag is identical to the second name of Hundertwasser, who called himself Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser. Since 2004, the ship anchored in the harbour of Tulln. [German]
Hundertwasser acquired the former transport ship in Palermo. A first trip to Venice and extensive renovation work followed. In 1975, the ship embarked on an 18-month journey from Venice to New Zealand. As part of an exhibition in 2004, it was brought by sea and land to Tulln.
