Vienna Waits for You

Since starting college, a few people have told me that the “grass doesn’t grow under my feet.” This phrase has definitely proven to be true over the past three months considering I have been to 12 countries since the end of January. One trip I have yet to discuss on my blog is my trip to Vienna the weekend after spring break. Here it is:

Grüß Gott! Even though Austria is a German-speaking country, people often use
grüß Gott as greeting instead of guten Tag. The phrase translates to God bless you because the country is traditionally Catholic. A couple of weeks ago, I had fun exploring the city of Vienna with my roommate Megan.

Here are the main highlights:

  • GORGEOUS Baroque palaces
The Hofburg Palace
Schönbrunn Palace
Schönbrunn Gardens
  • Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek (basically the Beauty and the Beast Library)
  • delicious food – wiener schnitzel, cake, Mozartkugel, and Manner’s wafers
Famous Viennese Cake
  • well-preserved culture – everything is so gorgeous! The city is a music-lover’s dream 🙂

We were only in Vienna for two short days, but the city was very clean and livable–I will definitely be back to the stunning capital of Austria. Tschüss!
