The new transit system is flawless. We parked our van at the terminal of Vienna’s northern suburb and zoomed to the city centre in under 15 minutes.
Old means of transportation are still used to this day.
Some buildings are very ancient yet well maintained and luxurious.
Some buildings are extremely contemporary.
There is always something cool just around the corner.
The people are very friendly.
And extremely handsome.
Palaces and parliaments litter the streets.
Vienna is somewhat statuesque.
I give the place a 9 out of 10.
The fee to enter the castle was a little too steep in my opinion but at least we got a free funicular ride on the way down.
I’m pretty confident that you’ve seen the movie The Sound of Music before, I mean the darn thing plays 3 times a day on TV around Christmas time. As we left Salzburg heading towards Vienna, we stopped that a truck stop close to the lake towns where Miss Judy Dench herself sang her heart out while frolicking one of these hills. Holy crap, what a magnificent place.
What they don’t tell you at the foot of the hill is that once you’ve climbed up all the stairs you MUST buy the 8 euro admission fee to enter the grounds and actually take advantage of the views.
