  • We were lucky enough to visit the town hall square with the Christmas market already set up. It is worth visiting with all its food, drink and craft stalls. Spectacular lighting and also for the one who knows, a large ice skating rink. We have to visit him.

  • One of the main attractions in Vienna, where a lot of festivals and events happen, right across the national theatre. The building itself is massive but beautiful, befit of a former empire. All windows have flowers and we are talking about a huge number of windows here.
  • I had dinner at one of the restaurants on a Saturday evening. It was so busy and the food options were endless! It was affordable as well, about 8-15 € per plate. It was great! I loved it. It just so happened that the Film Festival was showing The Third Man that evening. I got there at 19:30 and found plenty of seating. If you plan on attending a show, it does fill up so get there at least a half hour before the show. It was wonderful!
