I’m back from my super short break in Vienna. I had a fab time! My word for Vienna is clean. Everything about the city is just gorgeous; the buildings, the colours and the Christmas decorations… That city is the definition of Christmas. It’s like Christmas threw up there. It’s such a lovely time to go as it’s all Christmassy but not mega busy. I imagine the -4 degrees temperature puts a lot of people off! I hope to revisit at a later date to see all the things I missed. 2 days definitely wasn’t enough time.
Here’s my to-do list with what I saw!
Christmas markets – The reason I want to visit Vienna is to experience the Christmas markets so this shall be ticked off hopefully.There are lots of these spread around the city so we visited a few! Eat Sachertorte – I’m all for local delicacies when they are cake!Did on the first night. I was hoping to have it again the second day but I filled up on schnitzel and couldn’t eat any more. It’s very yummy! Visit Schloss Belvedere – love a good palaceBeautiful and symmetrical!! Saw the famous Klimt paintings as well.
- Visit Schloss Schonbrunn – whilst I’m looking at palaces…
- Prater – looks like fun
Stephansdom – this is where to get a view apparently!Amazing view!!
I don’t think I did bad considering I was only there for 48 hours! Other things we did:
- Visited Hundertwasserhaus
- Ate schnitzel
- Visited Hofberg
- Went in a few smaller churches
I really enjoyed my short but sweet trip and I really liked Vienna. Although it’s not a cheap city I didn’t think it was too expensive. I definitely want to revisit another time and do all the stuff I didn’t have time to!
