In July of 2010 I spent about 10 days in Vienna and fell in love! I adored the food, culture, museums, galleries and pretty much everything else. Best galley/museum was definitely the 'Albertina' which houses a great collection. Sachertorte was a must at the Sacher Hotel - where else? I found the metro system excellent and used it the whole time. We used a prebought ticket with which you just got on without any bother. When we went it was averaging around 37 celsius so we were very lucky. Even if it meant our 'Manner' and ice cream got a bit melted! The Reisenrad (Giant Ferris Wheel) was good fun and is definitely a must - try for a clear day though! Lizzie :)
A constant delight in Vienna is the discovery (especially in Summer) at just how green this city is. Even a few hundred meters from the city center you can find green oases, where sunlight filters through the trees. In the background of this picture we can catch a glimpse of the amazing architecture of the Albertina Museum.
