This tour through Germany, Suisse and Luxembourg lead the Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra among other places to Mühlhausen, where they should perform in a multi-functional hall, which has also been use for ice-skating. When Willi Boskovsky recognized this, he refused to conduct. Only the manager could convince him to change his mind, but Boskovsky insisted on wearing a fur coat. As expected, the multi-functional hall got transformed into a heated concert hall very fast, but Boskovsky still wanted to wear the coat. So it became one of the hottest concerts for the conductor.
