An August 2000 trip
to Vienna by mooncross
Quote: Vienna, city of Sissi and Strauss, waltzes and prancing Lippizaner, located on the shores of the blue Danube. A modern city where the past still lives on. In the music, the majestic palaces and the many churches.

Attraction | "Hundertwasserhaus"
The Hundertwasserhaus is a must-see in Vienna. Since the house itself is a residential building, the authorities built another complex across the street in the same style to accommodate the tourists. Aside from various souvenir shops and cafes, you can find the Toilet of Modern Art in this building. It is definitely worth a visit, even if you're not in need of a bathroom!

Attraction | "Schönbrunn Palace"
A stroll in the large, formal garden toward the hill at the back end was much more pleasant. Plus the garden is so big that it can accommodate large quantities of tourists before becoming crowded.
Tickets range from € 7 - € 14, depending on which tour you take. Buy your tickets upon arrival and keep an eye on the numbers when yours comes up.
The easiest way to get to Schönbrunn is by public transport: take U4 (green) west or tram 58 west and get off at the Schönbrunn stop.
Since 1996, the Palace is designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
