Well after a great week in Prague, we took the bus to Vienna where we had booked three nights (two full-days sightseeing). As usual, it is never enough time but we got around and saw as much as we could in Vienna’s inner circle of sightseeing destinations. We managed to find a good value and great little apartment very close to the city centre which made an ideal base for exploring (plus there was table soccer which the boys thought was very cool!).
Plus a little pub nearby for a drink
What really took us about Vienna was the beautiful architecture of not only the main sightseeing buildings (Opera House, Museums, Parliament house, Town Hall) but the residential buildings too. They are all about 4 storey high, probably due to some historical planning restrictions on buildings. Needless to say, they are absolutely beautiful.
We jumped on a Vienna sightseeing bus with a 24 hour ticket and it really proved it’s worth. After doing the full circuit, we then jumped on and off at various destinations we had earmarked. Here’s a few photo’s to give you an idea.
After some sensational work by Ash’s Mum and Dad at home to get our International Driving Permits, and by our friends John and Sharon who kindly received and delivered our IDPs to us, we were able to travel a different way and hire a car to explore the rest of Austria. A big thanks to you all! The boys nicknamed our car Benny and it had a SatNav with the voice of Kate Beckinsale which Ash loved. That will be in our next instalment…..
