I chose Vienna as well as many others, because celebrating the end of the year, finding positive opinions, beautiful stories and a lot of people who felt the spirit of the holiday season. I wanted to try it. And here I go. With fresh forces and emotions, because the winter was quite whimsical, many flights cancelled and so on...
I arrived at the airport Wien Schwechat, Vienna. I chose to travel with FlyNiki
(http://www.flyniki.com/start.php?MARKT=DE&LANG=eng ) because the prices are good and there are no hidden fees. Service quality is ok and tasty food. Since is a low budget air company exceeds my expectations. The airport is located 16 km from the centre of Vienna. As travel options, I chose the train, CAT City Airport Train, which takes 16 minutes and costs 11 Euros and 17 Euros round trip. They can be purchased at the information offices or ticket machines, located in the airport.
I stayed at Hotel Park Royal Palace Vienna, 4 stars (http://www.austria-trend.at/Hotel-Park-Royal-Palace-Vienna/en/) as he is and so is his name. It is located near Vienna Technical Museum. You feel like in stories, lights on all floors and a huge space. The price for 2 nights with double room and breakfast is about 200 Euros, but worth it. We had hearty breakfast, varied and extremely courteous and jovial staff.
I started my journey visiting the city emblem: Stephansdom, a Romanesque church with gothic elements inside. Not to be missed is the view from above of Vienna. Entry is through Gate Giants and you have to climb 343 steps, but definitely worth the effort.
I visited Schonbrunn Palace, whose gardens are impressive in winter, but can you imagine in spring or summer?! Stadtpark, is a downtown park, who is famous for its monument dedicated to Johann Strauss, called the ,,Waltz King,,. Quarter Museum has 12 entries, contains the Museum of Modern Art and Leopold Museum. Entry fee is 9 Euros. The schedule between museums varies. Belvedere is an impetus remarkable palace, luxurious interior, known works of art (The kiss – Gustav Klimt). Mozarthaus Vienna is a museum which houses exhibitions and also Mozart lived there.
Shopping in Vienna is glossy, big brands and not enough money to buy it. But beyond the big brands, there are stores such as Zara, Mango, Springfield, Tom Tailor, Humanic (part of South City Shopping Mall). Attention - Sunday is closed. Otherwise you’re attracted to shops and bakeries, cafes, located downtown. Definitely need to try a cake with marzipan flavour. The food is tasty, the famous Wiener Schnitzer, apple pie, baked potatoes with pork medallions and the chocolate pudding. Prices in restaurants are peppered pretty hard, so it is best to opt for those who had the menu posted outside.
In two words...nice experience!
