A TO Z CHALLENGE VIENNA

Blogging from A to Z: V is for Vienna

Vienna … the last time I traveled to Europe in October 2019. For work. Of course. It’s always for work purposes. But as is my custom, I took a day off to explore a small part of the city.

One of the highlights of my trip was dining at the 600+ year-old restaurant, Griechenbeisl, the oldest restaurant in Vienna, founded in 1447.

Those who love Vienna dine at the Griechenbeisl, the oldest Inn in town. Enjoy traditional Viennese dining in a cosy historical ambiance. Find yourself in the same room in which famous guests like Mark Twain, Beethoven, Mozart, Luciano Pavarotti and Johnny Cash enjoyed their dinner. (Source)

I attended an evening function at the aristocratic Palais Liechtenstein.

Looked on in awe at the Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) trying to wrap my head around the mixture of architectural styles. I couldn’t find any place to stand and take a photo of the whole structure.

And finally walked along the Danube Canal to admire the graffiti art, sculpture exhibits, and marveled at the outdoor working space for the city’s artists.

  1. It’s many decades since we were in Vienna. At the time it was bitterly cold with a fierce wind and the place felt quite morose because the President (?) was lying in state. The cathedral was being renovated too. We always thought we’d go back one day.

    1. I visited in the Fall and it was getting quite cold already. The skies were mostly overcast. I’d love to visit it in the Summer.
