One Day in Vienna

#9 Lina Pohl:

Language Charms in the Belvedere Twilight

Innes Podcast header

Originally from Germany, near Cologne, Lina Pohl has recently settled in the heart of Vienna since June 2022. As a young Research Fellow at the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), seconded by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Lina delves into the intricate world of space policy. During her initial business trips to Vienna, she often strolled past the magnificent Belvedere Palace Gardens, a breathtaking oasis in the midst of the city. It’s the kind of scenery that sets the tone for a great day ahead. Moreover, there’s something magical about encountering a famous painting in real life that you’ve only ever seen on a coffee mug, or in this case, better, “The Kiss”-Cup.

Get to know Lina and her “leiwande” anecdotes, where she navigates the nuances of language, exploring the quirks and differences between German and Austrian dialects. From classics like “Sackerl” vs. “Tüte” to “Schlag” vs. “Sahne” or “Melanzani” vs. “Aubergine”, even in German-German translation, the charm and complexity of language prevail. Join us for a dose of laughter and insight as Lina shares her artsy and culinary discoveries in Austria’s beautiful capital.
