Two friends from Wisconsin, USA came to visit me in Vienna, Austria and stayed for 8 days. Both are teachers (English teacher & a Spanish teacher) and wanted to make the best of their visit in Austria’s capital. They had a fun and busy schedule involving the Essential Sights to See, good food, and much more.
•Enjoy a traditional Bavarian dinner at the Luftburg with pork knuckle, stuffed pretzel, coleslaw and sides of mustard and horseradish
•Go on the Prater’s famous Ferris Wheel (the oldest in the world!)
•Visit to the State Hall, part of the National Library, a MUST for teachers! An incredibly elaborate library, more than 200,000 volumes are here, and the entire place looks like it was inspired for the famous dancing scene in Beauty and the Beast
•Head over to a cafe for an Einspänner, a Viennese classic double espresso with whipped cream
•Visit the Hundertwasserhaus, where whimsical and artistic apartments by artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser are featured, along with gift shops and cafes to enjoy
