Vienna Austria

Our trip to Vienna took us on a scenic odyssey through the country side. The Danube River is still a vibrant transportation route and tourist sight seeing exploration destination. The small villages, towns and medieval castles that dot the landscape are a trip to the past.

Vienna, what can you say about your first impression arriving on the tour bus. The sights we seen as we made a quick tour around the city before arriving at our hotel. The 18th, 19th, and 20th century buildings standing side by side giving the viewer a scene of the past and present in one eye full. They contrast each other in a way that makes looking at them magical, the human perseverance shines through.

While the art group feasted on the masters of the arts the choir inspired the crowds that gathered at the cathedrals they sang at. St. Stephens was an impressive one as was all the cathedrals we were invited to.

Footsteps all around Vienna was a full on group experience. I’m not sure how many brats were eaten but I do know we put a healthy dent in the cities inventory. There was quite a few of us that had type of tracker on us and the consensus was we put on 22 miles in one day. The experience as invigorating as it was I would have loved to stay longer and see more of the city as well as the rest of Austria, time constraints going with a group. Still had an incredible time with all and would do it again in a heartbeat. The art group had a visual experience going to many of the museums throughout the city.
