Ich lade Sie auf eine Reise nach Wien ein
Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria, and the city with the highest quality of life .The breathtaking city which remained almost not destroyed after the War and keeps a lot of smells of ancient times. This travelling will bring you to the several centuries back.
Thinking about Vienna , such words come to my minds:
Beautiful heavy architecture
While going through Vienna, you will able to observe huge, old buildings, which strikes by their beauty. Even tiny cafes are situated in such building, thus sitting inside giving you the feeling of being not in 21th century , but somewhere in 18-19th.
Building worth seeing: Parlament, Museum twins, University of Vienna, Rathaus
I was really shocked with the number of park in Vienna, moreover all of them are huge. The most important thing for Austrians is life, that is why they try to spend the majority of their time outside with their families. Hence, do not be surprised with the number of people in park, for instance just relaxing and enjoying the nature.
Parks worth to be visited: Stadtpark, Volksgarden, Burggarden, Schlosspark
One of the most famous Vienna’s landmark gothic cathedral. The place to see the stunning panorama of Vienna. Do not miss your chance, spent your 5€ either for going up by the lift or overcoming a distance of 343 steps.
But do not be worry if you do not love meat, you will also find something tasty. The cake Zacher, the traditional cake in Austria. I can ensure you that you will go bananas of it. Go to Aida. Beautiful cafe with cozy atmosphere.
Some other expenses are public transport. The metro is the best way to go through the city. It is convenient and you can get to any distinction by subway. The ticket costs 16€ for the whole week, the best choice to travel around the city without any afraid. My advice: do not try to have a free ride:)
Some other interesting aspects in Vienna:

The Original Neapolitan Wafers are Manner’s classic and best selling product and have become a symbol of Viennese culture and lifestyle. Manner’s beloved wafers have been a part of Austrians lives for many generations.
