Word Rap about Vienna
Only in Vienna:
The incredibly beautiful and interesting buildings all over the city. And of course the charming grumpiness of the Viennese.
The sea and beaches.
I go out and eat way to much in good restaurants. Unfortunately we have too many of them here in Vienna.
All those little hidden cafés with their sinful choice of heavenly sweet treats.
The restaurant "Wiener" close to the hotel. Viennese cuisine as you would expect it. Even better.
Go watch people at the famous "Graben" and then grab a drink at "Le Loft" with an incredible view. In both directions, Vienna's old town and the outskirts with in direction "Kahlenberg".
When it gets dark:
Stare at the stunningly lit town hall "Rathaus".
Not mentioned in any tourist guide:
The delicious and world famous Viennese tap water.
Your favorite spot:
On the lawn in front of the "Gloriette". Picturesque scenery with Schönbrunn Palace.
The interior of Schönbrunn Palace is truly worth a visit. You rarely find rooms that impressive. And you immediately feel set back into the time of Maria Theresia.
On the roof top of the aquarium "Haus des Meeres". Even better at sundown.
No need to see or do, even when mentioned in a guide:
The touristic "Ring Tramway". Explore the famous "Ring" by foot or on a bike.
Let's wrap it up, what do you love about Vienna?
The size of the city. Even being a huge city, you never feel lost in Vienna. You will often be reminded of village-like characters. Especially when you sit in one the many ice-cream parlors and listen to the famous Viennese humor "Schmäh".
