I have to admit, that I was bored in Vienna. The Austrian capital is relatively expensive, which leaves someone on a budget, who doesn’t want to spend hundreds of Euros on admission fees, a bit stranded. There aren’t really many activities left, which are both fun and cheap. Consequently, I spent my time in Vienna once again looking at pretty buildings and stuffing myself with Schnitzel. It was, apart from the delicious food, quite the opposite of what I needed to escape the monotony of Europe. But, escaping architecture in Vienna turned out to be about as probable as not stepping in dog poo in Paris. Honestly, after a few months of Europe, I’m sick of pretty buildings. I even wish there was something ugly to look at for once, something with character. Vienna therefore hasn’t left much of an impression with me and I probably won’t visit again till I’ve spent a few weeks out in the country and am sick of looking at cows again.

Still, I don’t want to do Vienna injustice. It is a beautiful city with lots of culture, architecture and impressive palaces. Therefore, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

    I agree with you on those bulidings and everything, but actually I was amazed by Vienna, althought I just visited the Zoo and Schonbrunn. I had a lot of fun in the Zoo and was really amazed. May be give it a chance one more time, if you ever go back. However I liked you have been honest. The Schonbrunn Palace foto is incredible 🙂
