On September 5th 2011, the members of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies were received by Austrian Federal Minister OUniv.-Prof.Dr. Karlheinz Töchterle at the Bundesministerium für Wissenschaft und Forschung in Vienna.
The minister presented each of the visitors with a book about the building in which the ministry is housed: the 17th-century Palais Starhemberg. Following a tour of the ministry, the visit finished with a pleasant lunch. A number of LBI members were later sighted at Schönbrunn palace.
