We’ll begin by saying that we did not have sufficient time to discover lovely, historic Vienna (Wien). 2 full days and one further evening is not a lot however we made essentially the most of it, regardless of very excessive temperatures.
Our journey began with a spectacular (and FREE) spotlight. The Vienna State Opera is a world-class opera home. How cool is it that they promote standing room solely (SRO) tickets for lower than $5USD? That is not a typo. Whoa, 5 bucks. Appears we weren’t the one individuals who thought it was a great deal as a result of all of it 567 SRO tickets have been bought out after we arrived.
No drawback…the Opera Home has arrange an enormous display screen and many folding chairs outdoors so folks can benefit from the splendor on stage without spending a dime. The ballet additionally performs right here. Be sure to take a look at their website if you happen to’re heading over, hoping for a free out of doors efficiency. (Subsequent time, we’re stepping into!)
We splurged on a number of issues we might not suggest…
First, we loved our day at Schonbrunn Palace fairly a bit. That being stated, we might have most popular to avoid wasting $56 for our 2 premium palace tour tickets and easily wander the spectacular grounds and gardens (free). When you’ve got not been to an impressive palace earlier than Schonbrunn, a visit inside may be a good suggestion however one thing to skip when you have visited Versailles or one other opulent palace.
When you’re at Schonbrunn, cease by Landtmann’s Jausen Station for a scrumptious and reasonably priced meal in a candy setting.
Talking of meals, we additionally recommend skipping touristy Figlmueller. Tasty? Very! However it was the priciest meal of our 9-week journey and we had schnitzel fairly near it for a fraction of the worth on the informal and low cost Mr. Schnitzel.
One other metropolis, one other free strolling tour. This time we booked with Good Excursions. It was very busy and appeared important to guide the free tour prematurely.
Lastly, the Naschmarkt is a enjoyable place to walk by however we might suggest going elsewhere for a meal. We now have talked and written A LOT about our love of consuming at meals markets so this can be a departure from the raves we usually share. Nonetheless extremely beneficial for a go to.
We realized a lesson in Vienna…generally free or low cost stuff is simply nearly as good as costly issues. Typically, it is even higher! Our costliest meal was removed from our greatest whereas a few of the free actions have been among the many favorites of our journey.
