Well sorry in advance for the not so exciting photos, but most of the bunch I took are partey pictures it's truee, which I don't think you'd enjoy as much.
I went to Vienna some weeks ago with my class to explore, enjoy and get seriously wasted.
We took the train from Jutland to Copenhagen and flew directly to Vienna airport with Austrian Air Lines. From the airport we took a train to the city centre.
We were living at this 2 star hotel just outside of the Ring. Which is short form of Ringstrasse which surrounds the city centre.
So we arrived Sunday afternoon and spent the rest of the day getting unpacked and sleeping. Well some of the guys went out and came home very late (one of them had been so pissed that he couldn't move the next morning!).
Monday morning we got up and ate the most horrible breakfast I've ever had.
Yes worse than Italian breakfast, and that says a lot. Basically just some dry paper bread and some stiffy jam, and some hot water to swallow.
We set out for a trip around the city. First we arrived at the City Hall, an amazing structure, sadly we couldn't get in. Not that we had the time anyways...
After that we managed to reach the parliament. A colossal building in neoclassical style. Corinthian pillars et all.
It was simply so beautiful. One of my classmates said something very true at that moment.
Why does so ugly people need sooo beautiful buildings?
Obviously to compensate for something.. was the answer.
Seriously, not to berate the Austrians (because frankly they are some very, very nice folks, the elderly are a bit racist though, but hey it's the same up here) but my allah, their girls are nothing compared to Scandinavian chicks. Just a warning there for ya.
Another shot of the parliament
From the parliament we walked across the Burgring (I think it was the Burgring, I'm not sure..) to the plaza where Hitler spoke just after the Anschluss. The plaza is really, really big and when you imagine the amount of people present back then.. it make you feel somewhat insignificant in comparison.
All we did after that was walk around and look at attractions and had lunch in an awesome Italian restaurant. I suddenly became very much needed because I speak/read a little Italian and all the menus were in Italian!
Even though the waiters spoke perfectly German, none of them wanted to actually tell us what the darned meals consisted of
Hmm we strolled around a bit and saw the Stephansdom(cathedral) an impressive piece of Gothic architecture.
We ended the official day with a trip to Naschmarkt. Naschmarkt is an open market with several "ethnic" shops. To tell you the truth they all just sell feta, fruit and vegetables and shout after you. But it's a cool place.
End of part one!
