Wien The Wonderful

The long weekend is over and I am back from Vienna =(
Heres my top5 list of things you dont want to miss if you are in Vienna:

РStroll through the impressive Sh̦nbrunn palace grounds. The palace is impressive Рit truly reflects the power of the old Habsburg empire that ruled a large part of Europe.

– Admire Klimt’s ‘Beethovan’s Frieze’ (on display at the Secession). His ‘Life and Death’ is on display at the Leopold Museum.

– Savour a Sachertorte at the famous Sacher hotel.

– Dont miss the Works by Hundertwasser at KunstHausWein. Even if you are not really into modern art, you will be bowled over by this one.

– Enjoy the paintings and artefacts on display at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. More importantly, enjoy the building – its one of the very few European museums that was built to be a museum and not a converted palace – and the building is a beauty in itself.

Now, its back to the realities of a Monday morning.
