My liking for the city of Vienna a video set to the music of Beethoven’s 9th symphony part of ‘Ode to Joy’ with words by German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright Friedrich Schiller.
There’s not much else to say just sit back and enjoy a glimpse and taste of the capital of Austria. The city where Ludwig van Beethoven made his home, in fact many homes some records say over 60!
As well as its musical history the city of Vienna is known for its wonderful architecture from the Baroque right through to the modern of today.
Vienna So Easy To Get Around
Getting around Vienna is simple with a really well integrated transport system with day or weekly tickets making is so easy to use throughout your stay.
Shopping, food places to go and see the list is really endless galleries, museums with international reputations as are the cafes and restaurants that will lure you in with their wonderful and colourful creations and the world famous chocolate cakes from the Hotel Sacher or the more simple sausage stalls those too have their own fine reputation.
Fresh fruit, fish and food from the central market the Naschmarkt where nearby every Saturday is held a giant Flea Market where you can find antiques from the city or country and items too from the former Eastern block countries that border Austria many bargains to be had but be there early.
I visit the city every year and no matter what time of the year I go, there is always something different to see and do. If you are looking for a city break you could not choose a better place to start with.
Do try to listen to the music track with your headphones on, it will improve the experience greatly!
