A swarm of 15,000 bees from the Austrian Mostviertel region have been moved to a new home - the roof of Austrian iconic art gallery the Secession.
The bees join the growing number of city bees under the control of the inner-city beekeepers.
The hive was sponsored by the Erste Foundation which decided to back the project because of the use of the bee in its logo.
The picture shows bee keepers Heidrun Singer and Friedrich Haselsteiner as they place the hive under the golden dome of the Secession.
