Unfortunately I visited Vienna during a heat wave, which kept me from running through the place and seeing every possible thing. Also the heat made me a bit testy. But Vienna is very, very pretty. It has grandeur, but it’s the right kind of grandeur, not the stuffy boring stupid kind. There’s beautiful buildings, great museums, lovely palaces and leafy parks. Only thing that I liked slightly less was that the parks were not so much for sitting in, but more from looking at from the sidelines on a neat bench. I’m more of a slouch on the grass type of gall.over 2 years ago
Absolutely beautiful city.
Cottonball is right – all shops are closed Sundays except restaurants and cafes. There is a lot of concrete in the inner city – of course – but Stadtpark is absolutely gorgeous, relaxing, perfect place to sit on the grass in summer and read a book, and you wouldn’t know you were in the inner city.
The people do keep to themselves, and don’t expect overly friendly customer service. In fact, once you get used to their rude way of treating their customers, it almost becomes a part of Vienna’s charm.
Find Blutgasse and around that area, get a guidebook (or a Viennese citizen who knows some history!) and read the stories behind the streets – they take on a whole new atmosphere when you know the little stories.
