Vienna was one of the cities on top of our must-visit list! Therefore, it was more than great to be able to spend a long weekend in this beautiful city.
If I should describe Vienna in three words, those would be classic, sophisticated and unhurried. This city definitely knows exactly where it stands thus exudes a confidence known from cosmopolitan cities at its best. Nevertheless, Vienna managed to keep its ancient charm and makes you feel a whiff of of the former imperial empire.
I was fascinated most by the sheer density of monumental buildings and the spacious architecture. At the same time there is nothing better than sitting in one of the numerous petite cafés and have the bespoke "Apfelstrudel" with vanilla ice cream and a tasty Hausbrandt coffee.
