Weekend in Vienna

 Next up in the three day travel itinerary series: Vienna! The city of music! In Vienna there are an enormous amount of concerts that are put on each day. A fantastic one to attend is the one at the Schonbrunn Palace, make sure to check out the schedule so you can be at the Palace for the concert a day they put it on. You can switch these days around!

Day 1: Start out at St. Stephan’s Cathedral smack dab in the middle of the city, it is recognizable from anywhere in the city. Head over to the Spanish Riding School to see the world famous school and watch riders preform, you can’t miss this! Next up is the Imperial Treasury which houses the crown jewels… yep sign me up! Grab lunch at a cafe around the Treasury and people watch! After lunch get in line to enter the Hofburg Palace, an incredible palace filled with many different museums in different parts of the palace. Make sure to go through the Sisi Museum! After you have scoured every inch of the palace head over to the Naschmarkt and take you time going through all the shops!

Day 2: Begin your day with another Palace, the Belvedere Palace, an incredible amount of art, including Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss. make your way through the Stadtpark and take your time looking at all the statutes. Have lunch, or grab lunch and eat in the Stadtpark. Then head over to the Vienna State Opera and feel the history of all the ballets, operas, and concerts that have been held there over 150 years. After you’ve sampled Vienna’s musical culture sample Vienna’s famous Sacher torte at the Sacher Hotel. It’s famous and you’ll be able to taste why. Go for some more culture and see the Musikverein, another famous music hall. Check out their concert schedule and see what you can get a ticket to!

    I liked your little comment about what makes this dish “rustic.” This looks really tasty, minus the shrimp! I am not a fan of shrimp unless it is breaded and bad for me.
