If you’re planning on a leisurely visit buy passes of hop-on-hop-off buses and local travel passes to make your commuting cheaper and purchase online tickets for places you want to explore to avoid the queue and long waits. Since we were doing superfast Vienna we didn’t have time to do it.
We reached Vienna early in the morning. We had our breakfast and left our luggage in the locker room and went out for our exploration of the city.
We took the metro to visit our first stop at the Schonbrunn Palace and to explore the gardens of Vienna. The sight of Vienna gardens after Versailles was not disappointing the color schemes and green lush gardens with mazes it felt great exploring it.
At the end of the garden, we could the Poseidon holding the Trident high in the sky as if protecting you. It felt as if you’re in his shadow and you’ll feel humbled in his magnificent presence.
The palace itself is very beautiful and it’s preserved in its original state for visitors to appreciate the lifestyle and grandeur of the palace.
We spent the first half of our day exploring both. Next stop Time Travel on the way we saw Karlskriche.
then we went to Belvedere Palace
It’s was indeed a beautifully constructed Palace with surrounding gardens.
It’s a great way to sit and relax and explore the history of Vienna. Its 4D shows are amazing though when we went the bunkers were closed due to technical faults but still we enjoyed it thoroughly.
St. Stephen’s Cathedral:
The majestic church looming in the heart of the city is a sight to behold. It intricate work till the tip of the towers would keep you spellbound. The closer you go the more amazed you would be of the artwork on the stone walls.
The vintage cars and the horse buggies awaiting its riders give you a vintage feel as if you’re in the 18th century. We spent some time in church then proceeded further to our last destination Prater.
Prater Amusement Park:
Well, I’m a sucker for amusement parks and this one is a total adrenaline rush. The rides are thrilling and scary at the same moment. They’ll take you on a journey in every humanly possible direction at the same time.
Your inner ear would beg you to let it gain the semblance of gravity for few minutes before proceeding to the next ride.
It’s a must-visit destination.
