Vienna - November 2014

Hey guys!
I hope you are all fine?

Since the weather here is not springtime at all, I wanted to share with you my stay in Vienna 3 ½ years ago! I know it’s quite a long time, but I remember it pretty well since it was my first weekend-trip to a foreign country.

I went there with some friends from university at the end of November 2014. The journey was pretty long by bus (about 5 hours), but we slept the whole time since we’ve been to the Prof’s Night the night before at just had had half an hour of sleep.

After getting to Vienna at about 1pm we went to our rooms and late we had a guided tour. Since she was pretty boring we left the group and discovered Vienna by our own. Since one of my friends had been there a few years before, she knew some sights so we went to the café Mozart passing by the Opera House, strolled through the shopping streets till it got night and saw the lovely Stephansdom.

After eating at Vapiano (been there for the first time at totally fell in love), we went back home since the next day we had to get up early.

On Saturday we went to see Schloss Schönbrunn, the castle of Sissi. Unfortunately, I didn’t enter it (#scrooge) but it was amazing from the outside, so I believe it’s pretty beautiful from the inside as well. Since it was fall, the garden wasn’t lush but I enjoyed it anyways. Srolling through the same paths the empress Sissi walked through is just unbelievable. In the yard of the castle was a little Christmas market me and my friend had a look on.

Later that day, we went to see the Imperial Palace Hofburg and the Christmas market at the townhall.

The next day was the day we left Vienna, so we hadn’t a lot of time since we had to check-out and leave at 1 pm. We just went to the St. Charles Church which wasn’t far away from the Hostel we stayed at. It is truly a beautiful church but I imagine it even more pretty in Summer when the fountain in front of it is filled with water at the garden surrounding it is lush.

So that was my short 2-days-stay in Vienna. I really liked the city and regret that I wasn’t there for much time to see even more sights, like the Hundertwasser House, the Danube Tower and so on. I can truly recommend it and if you haven’t heard these days, Vienna was even elected the most liveable city in the world!

Have you ever been to Vienna? If yes did you like it? If not, would you consider going there? Leave a comment!
