This is not the first time I am visiting Vienna. In fact, I visited Vienna almost half a dozen times when I was younger. I used to love this city and always asked my parents to go there for a week or so during the summer. However, its been years since I’ve been back.
That is why I was so excited to visit Vienna again this past summer. This time around, I saw the city from a new light. I explored her castles. I strolled along her streets. I tasted her cakes. And I remembered what it was about Vienna that I loved so much as a little girl.
Here are a few places I recommend you visit:
Vienna is a city of art. And her best collection of art is at the Belvedere Museum. It is here that will you find the collection of Gustav Klimt’s gorgeous gold paintings. This place should be at the top of the list of any art lover or Vienna visitor. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take pictures of the paintings inside.
This palace is the former imperial summer palace. It is easily Austria’s most beautiful. I, personally, adore the yellow color. It reminds me of the sun – very suitable for a summer palace. We had such a great time exploring the gardens!
In retrospect, I sincerely regret not having enough time to go inside this one and see the lovely apartments of the royals. I only managed to admire the architecture from the outside. At least this gives me an excuse to come back to Vienna….again!
Vienna is loaded with lovely boutiques both international and local for you to shop away. I personally have an adoration for menswear. And Vienna knows menswear like no other city in the world.
I leave you with a few more pics of other locations around the city that I managed to take snaps of…
