    Haus der Illusionen

    July 20, 2019 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Hier spielt einem die Wahrnehmung so manchen Streich. Es war lustig und man(n) wird wieder zum Kind. Sehr lustig und kurzweilig.

    Austria, Vienna.

    June 30, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The words make no sense to me at all. They are not even a little bit like words I know. We have arrived in Austria. As we crossed the border we were talking about the Terminator. First village sign we see is for Arnoldstein. Wonder if it's going to be a theme? The drive from Udine was really good, another 450k's but on freeways devoid of trucks! Yesterday's trip was solid trucks the whole way. The drive through the alps (and I mean through) was really quite pretty when we were not in a tunnel. We left early so arrived in Vienna in the early afternoon, checked into our hotel and did a bit of exploring. We are quite centrally located, about a ten minute walk from the museum quarter. This is a precinct of gorgeous old buildings holding a range of different museums forming a plaza that has cafes and bars around the edge. We went into the Leopold Museum to see a Klimt exhibition and got totally swept away by the Egon Schiele exhibition. Wow. Finished the day with our first authentic Austrian meal - of course, Roge had the schnitzel. Tomorrow we'll jump on the tourist bus and let it takes us around. We're only here for two full days (leaving Sunday) so we have have to pack in the sightseeing.Read more

    Austria, Vienna, day 2.

    July 1, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Given that we've only got two full days in Vienna, we're trying to pack in as much as we can, and, as much as I hate to admit it, the hop on hop off tourist bus makes that a lot easier. We hopped on this morning and went out to the Schonbrunn Palace which is a little way out from where we are - certainly not walking distance. This is quite an expansive and interesting Palace set on about 400 hectares that has a lot of interesting features, including its own zoo - apparently the oldest zoo in the world, even has koalas. The Palace building was styled after Versailles in France and having visited there can say that it didn't quite make it, still very impressive nonetheless. We wandered the Palace rooms and caught a little tourist train around the grounds so that we could see more. We got off at the Gloriette, which is an impressive building on a hill towards the back of the place. We had lunch here and enjoyed an amazing view of Vienna from the top of the Gloriette and looking back toward the Palace. Back on the bus, we wanted to stop at the Belevdere Museum, another beautiful big old building (not quite sure of it's history) that now houses a number of exhibition spaces. Vienna's permanent Klimt exhibition is in this building and this was on my list of things to see. Not disappointed. Back in the bus, hopped off at the Museum Quartier for drinks. We walked back to our hotel and ate at a great restaurant recommended by the hotel. Viennese food is really good, it heavy, I'm not sureI could eat it all the time. Roge is getting right into, he had the Goulash last night.Read more

    Dag 3. Van zakenhotel naar pension

    November 6, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌬 15 °C

    Na twee nachten in het Novotel, waar ook het seminarie plaatsvond, verkas ik naar een pension in een typische Weense woonblok. Een mooie wandeling van 3 km langs de buitenkant van de ring van Wenen.
    'S avonds nog één ommetje op zoek naar een typische trap en nog enkele kerken die open zijn omdat er mensen staan te zingen.
    Op tijd het bed in om de volgende dag ten volle te kunnen genieten van het daglicht.
