Hereditary Prince Alois was in attendance at a celebration that honored 800 years of the city of Feldkirch, Austria (located in the state of Voralberg, on the border with both Switzerland and Liechtenstein). The event, which was held at Feldkirch's Montforthaus, included a performance of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" by the Feldkirch City Orchestra and also featured presentations that highlighted the city's rich history and its future opportunities. A subtle feature of the occasion might be the carefully preserved 800-year-old town wall, which sits on the north side of the Montforthaus.

In addition to Alois, a number of other dignitaries were present, including members of the Federal Council, several regional ministers, and mayors from a number of surrounding municipal areas. A little more information about the festivities here.
