Vienna, Austria - 16th September 2008

By: ChristinaB

Yesterday we went to see the house created by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. It looks really beautiful and I like it alot! There is nothing special in this house, just normal flats (next time I come to Vienna I'll try to find a host living in there  ). Everybody living there has the right to decorate the surrounding of his/her window just as he/she likes - but only as far as the arms reach. Interesting, isn't it?

Vienna, Austria - 19th September 2008

Today we did some more sightseeing. We went to Karlsplatz where I saw a very special church with the 2 collumns in front of it (unfortunately the photo didn´t come out). There I also discovered one of Vienna's most beautiful subwaystations built in "Jugendstil" (it is a special style from around 1900 and very similar to art nouveau). Unfortunately the weather was a bit clowdy so the pictures came out rather dark. Sorry for that!

We continued our walk to the opera house. Oh, how much I'd love to watch a play there! But my host said that it would proberbly last too long for a little bear and I'd maybe get impatient so we decided to rather concentrate on sightseeing ;)

We walked along "Kärntnerstraße", Vienna's most famous shopping street where I saw these delicious "Sachertorten" in the shop window.

And then we reached St.Stephen's square with the big cathedral and the very modern "Haas-Haus" just opposite of it.

After a while (my host had to carry me in her bag for a moment because my little feed already got tired from walking) we reached Hofburg (we entered it through "Michaeler-gate") which was the former residence of the Habsburg family. Nowadays it hosts the Austrian national library, the Spanish riding school, the president's office and several museums - it's really a HUGE building. All these funny horses everywhere around there are called "Fiaker" and they are a very popular tourist attraction. A long time ago they were really used for transportation but nowadays they just do guided tours in the city center.

It's a strange time for visiting a rosarium because it is already autumn here in Austria, but nevertheless we went there and we had a great surprise. There were still sooo many beautiful roses there and their smell was everywhere in the air so we had a wonderful rest there!

After this break we walked on through the park and then we reached the City hall with its big square in front of it. There are always some events taking place on this square, at the moment they had an open air opera festival, in December the Christmas market takes place there, afterwards an iceskating court is built up there etc. Just opposite the city hall there is the Old imperial theatre, a very beautiful building.

Then we passed by the Austrian parliament. At the moment everybody talks about it here because next week elections are hold and the people are of course curious who'll get most power in the country then.

We ended our city trip at the Historical museum of arts. It has a twin just vis-à-vis, the historical museum of nature and in the beautiful park inbetween we played hide and seek for a while before we went home again.
