Vienna, Austria Days 4 - 6

I didn't take a single photo on day 4 as we worked all day long, went back to the hotel and worked some more, met up for drinks in the hotel lounge and then went to dinner. It was a long day and we all turned in early. Friday, again we worked all day. In between meetings, we did grab lunch and I snapped a photo of that. I had this puff pastry napoleon stuffed with veggies and covered with a light herb gravy. It was so good!


After work, we changed and met up for some sightseeing. We went down to the city centre for some more souvenir shopping. This was snapped on our walk.

After shopping, we met back up with the guys for dinner and drinks....in an Australian bar. But they did have a boot which we had been looking for everywhere. No, we didn't drink out of it, but we did take photos with it.

Saturday morning, we got up, worked out, had breakfast (the hotel had amazing breakfast) and then went sightseeing some more. We went to the Schonbrunn which is a museum. We walked around the outside and then made our way inside for a tour.
M and I around our walk around the Schonbrunn. It was raining all day!




The gardens are really pretty...even with the flowers dug up awaiting to be replanted. They were replanted in other areas already.


We had lattes and mozart cake while waiting for our tour.

Sadly, no photos inside.

After the Schonbrunn, we went to the Vienna Opera House which is where the iconic scene in Mission Impossible is filmed.

Up next, we grabbed some street food and then went to the Imperial Treasury in Vienna. This is where the crown jewels are held. Plus it is a museum as well.

We walked back to our hotel and along the way, we saw a peaceful protest going on. We also were there near their election, so we saw these protests a few times during the week we were there.

We headed back to the hotel to meet up with another co-worker and put our things away and head to dinner at Salieri. We did have some limoncello there which was really good.



After dinner, we walked back to the hotel and turned in as we had an early morning at Salzburg, the home of the Sound of Music.

  6. I went to Austria years ago and absolutely loved it. We were in Vienna on Palm Sunday and it was amazing. I would have to say Salzburg and Innsbruck were my favorite. Hope you got your picture in the gazebo where the sound of music was filmed. Most of it was actually filmed in California but you’ll see several spots from the movie.

    1. That would definitely be a great time to go. I went to Salzburg and it was pretty amazing. That day I posted about this morning. I did see those spots as we had a tour guide which was definitely the way to go.

    1. It was so good. I love going to Europe and having Limoncello. It isn't as good here in the States. Austria truly is beautiful!
