Flag of Austria  , Vienna,
Tuesday, October 11, 2011

After not much sleep, (surely not too much food last night), we headed for the station for the trip to Vienna.

Hotel Prinz Eugen is delightful.






Tonight we were off out to dinner and a Strauss and Mozart concert in the Stadt Park. We had expected it to be a bit ‘cheesy touristy’ but as with many of our experiences over the past few weeks, we were surprised.

The 4 course dinner was superb!

The concert was full of fun, with a small (13 piece) orchestra, 2 ballet dancers and 2 opera singers. However, the music was pretty good! We noted that most of the audience of about 500 people were aged 50+,  so were thrilled to see that 4 of the musicians were probably under 30.

We heard pieces by Johan and Josef (his younger brother), Mozart and Puccini.

So what is Vienna like? Well, we only got glimpses from taxis, but the theatre we went to was magical with winding staircases and huge chandeliers.

Tomorrow, it’s off to Berlin to meet Xandra.

Gute Nacht!
