Vienna Winter 2011 - Part 2


Friday - December 9th 2011

After breakfast we took the tram to the inner city, it takes only 15 minutes from the hotel, and went to Hofburg Palace, the office of the Austrian President, to the Vienna Town Hall, St. Stephan's Cathedral and then it was time for shopping. Christmas shopping can be very stressful and so we had a veggie burger for lunch. Then we stopped at a cupcake bakery and two cupcakes later we continued our tour through Vienna.

In the afternoon we spent some time at various Christmas markets and later we went to the Gösser Bierklinik (Gösser Beer Hospital) and enjoyed a cold glass of beer.

For today we had a dinner reservation at a vegetarian pub, but before we had another drink at T.G.I. Friday's. Rupp's is a small pub that offers over 600 whiskys and many different beers. We like that pub a lot, because it serves some very good and big veggie burgers. Of course the huge whisky and beer selection has nothing to do with that.

Later we returned to the hotel and enjoyed a last glass of beer at the hotel bar before we went to bed.

I take regular city breaks to Vienna and I can never get over how beautiful the city is. There seems to be something for everyone there!
