    A Visit to Vienna

    August 23, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Vienna is only an hour train trip from Bratislava, so we set off in the morning for a day trip to view some of the main attractions. We were soon in awe of the city, particularly as we arrived at Schönbrunn Palace. For the next six or so hours we spent traipsing around the city, taking trains, trams and buses to get to our destinations.

    After a tour of the imperial rooms of the Schönbrunn Palace, we headed to the Hundertwasserhaus, with its interestingly designed apartments. And of course there was the obligatory church, in the shape of St Stephen’s Cathedral and more palaces, including Hofburg Palace and Belvedere Palace. The day also included a stroll through the Nasctmarkt, a day market in the centre of Vienna.

    And of course, the song of the day had to be ... Oh Vienna ... The image is gone, only you and I
    This means nothing to me. Oh Vienna, you didn't disappoint.
