Some Vienna (Aug. 6th - 8th)

Hello!

My trip to Vienna was my last one in Europe and I could not finish my stay in Europe with a better city.

Vienna is simply amazing and it surprised me in every way possible. First because I really didn't expect such a beautiful and neat city. Also its inhabitants are so nice and the food is really awesome. I really could live there without much problem!

I went basically through the historic center of the city and also to Schönbrunn Palace and all I can say is that everyone should go at least once to this city.

I think Vienna is very well known - it's one of those cities I've always known because of the Vienna Boys Choir and its long musical history.

I didn't comment on this in my previous comment, but those ICE trainsets are really great looking.

Vienna Boys Choir
That's not something that young people like.

Hey, I am a young person (23)! I guess it helps that I was brought up on classical music and so I tend to have an appreciation of the rich cultural heritage that exists in Vienna so it's always been at the forefront of my mind, moreso than the new "trendy" places of Barcelona, Prague and Madrid when it comes to musical richness.

Unglaublig, wie diese Stadt ihre alte Bausubstaz erhalten hat, die Atmosfahre von wien ist einzigartig, das liegt sicherlich an all diesen eleganten und monumentalne Gebauden. Das schonste Bauwerk ohne Zweifel der Stephansdom, eine der beeindruckendsten Kathedralen Europas.

Naja, aber was hat mich am meisten beeindruckt war die allgemeine Architektur in der ganzen Stadt. Doch der Stephansdom ist auch unglaublich schön.

great pictures!

have you visited some of the narrow streets around Stephansplatz? they show the "old", prebaroque Vienna and are really fantastic, something you wouldn´t expect from the city. the Hoher Markt and Stephansplatz as well as Rotenturmstraße and Franz-Josefs-Kai were massively damaged during WW2, it´s a pity that one can still notice that.

Vienna's a great city to end off a European tour - I did the same last year after five weeks in the Balkans. Such an awesome city!
