Artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser lived and worked on the ship Regentag 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 has anchored in the harbour of Tulln. [German]
History of the ship Regentag
Hundertwasser acquired the former transport ship in Palermo. The 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.
