As an expat in Austria, I gave myself the time and the opportunity to see what lies behind the road between my appartment and my workplace. Of course, there were week-ends when I had to choose a destination in order to help the time pass by, but there were also week-ends when I just wanted to run away from my new hometown and simply escape for a few hours, just to see something else.
I might say I am grateful for having landed somehow in Salzburg, although there were times when I could hardly made myself understand why it had to be this town in the middle of the mountains and not a more cosmopolitan one.
So, after almost two years living as an expat in Austria, I am happy to talk to you about one of my favourite destinations – Viena! I’ve been there recently and I can warmly recommend it for a week-end getaway!
Must see objectives:
- Belvedere (The Museum and the Garden Behind) – famous picture: Gustav Klimt, Der Kuss.
- Schoenbrunn Palace and the whole Garden behind
- Praterstern – the amusement Park
- Stephansplatz with the Dom
I was recently there, so in April and the weather was just perfect for sightseeing.
Hotels recommended, well-centered and with high quality services:
