Our Eurotrip – part three – Vienna

Dear travelers and dreamers,

As I said in my previous posts about our Eurotrip from 2014, all was planned around the Metallica concert in Vienna. After two nights in Berlin (Our Eurotrip – first stop – Berlin) and a stop in Prague (Our Eurotrip – next stop – Prague) on 9.07.2014 we arrived in Vienna.

Vienna was all about music for us and I think that if you have an interest in art in general this should be the main reason of travelling here. Of course you get to see a very elegant city full of history as well.

We started our experience with the Metallica concert on our first day and  with a lot of walking around of course. The Metallica concert was the highlight of our trip, it was a great show with a lot of energy and we had a lot of fun.

The next day we saw the sunshine in the morning  so we went to the city center, wandering around and looking for a good place to get some coffee. It’s not hard to find that in Vienna, don’t forget that this is the place of the Sachertorte. So we took the metro to Stephansplatz and from there we took a walk admiring the views. We stopped at the Sacher Cafe to plan our day. We we’re lucky enough that it was early morning and not too crowded. On the other hand, because it was that early I didn’t feel like eating so I will try the Sachertorte next time.

We visited the museum Haus der Musik on our last night and it was very entertaining because it is an interactive museum of sound. I recommend it with all my heart  (Haus der Musik site). A good thing is that it’s open daily from 10 am-10 pm (last admission at 9.30 pm).

Visiting the Schonbrunn Palace and Garden, Saint Stephen’s Cathedral, the Parliament, the Rathaus, the University of Vienn and taking a stroll along the Danube should be on your list.Of course, there are more things to experience in Vienna and I am sure we will go back someday soon.

P.S. A word of advice from a girl that almost froze in summer on the streets of Vienna, pack a jacket and long pants even if you go in July.

Have you been in Vienna or plan on having a trip there? Hope you enjoy my post and I will be very happy to hear your thoughts.

  1. I like how you describe Vienna, agree that it’s all about music and art. Ah, and Metallica is one of my favorite bands! Good to read that you enjoyed your stay in Vienna. I’ve been there this Christmas and really fell in love with this city.

  2. Oh yes, you know it will not be the same when one is part of a group and has to be “chaperoned” through at great speed through various cities. And this was how our experience was like in Vienna. But we take pleasure at reading this blog, because we now know when we need to pick when we do get back to Vienna some day. That’s a promise!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! I am not a big fan of groups either, even if you go just with some friends it gets difficult, one wants to go, one wants to stay, one wants to eat, one wants to sleep more, different interests etc.
      Keep your promise!
