My Travel Bucket List: Vienna

My Travel Bucket List: Vienna []

This month has been crazy (for me, at least ) and we’re only half-way through! Since the beginning of the month I’ve spent time in four cities, have taken five trips to the airport, have sat on four trains and two buses, and have gotten lost more times than I can count–and I’m not stopping yet.

This time next week, we’ll be enjoying and exploring the Austrian capital of Vienna, so here are the top ten things I’m looking forward to.

Top Ten Things I’m Excited to See, Do and Eat:

Eat at a Würstelstand

My Travel Bucket List: Vienna []

Of course I would start this post with food! I love street food, so sampling one of Vienna’s finest sausages at a food cart seems like the perfect thing to do in the city.

Explore the Naschmarkt

My Travel Bucket List: Vienna []

Vienna’s largest open-air food market has everything, from bear, meat and cheese, to wines, plump purple figs and more!

Stroll – or bike – through Stadtpark

The largest of the Ringstrasse’s parks, scattered throughout are burst of music and statues honoring great musicians, such as Strauss, Schubert, and more.

Ride the Riesenrad

My Travel Bucket List: Vienna []

This giant ferris wheel, which was completed in 1897, takes a 20-minutes to complete a full rotation and at it’s highest peak takes you 65 meters up in the air. Yes, this sounds terrifying to a scaredy Kate like me, but it sounds like you will have an amazing view of the city!

Visit Schoenbrunn Palace and explore the gardens

Ride the Ring Tram

Hop on and hop off the tram as it takes you around the city and past Vienna’s major tourist attractions.

Drink Coffee

I love coffee. I love coffee at home, and I love sampling coffee while traveling. I love that it tastes the same and yet different depending on where you are in the world. I wouldn’t have thought that Vienna would be a coffee-hotspot, but from my research it sounds like it is. So, I will sample it.

Sample Viennese Wines

Eat schnitzel and potato salad, and pork knuckle

Not all in one sitting, because I as much as I love food there’s no way I could put that much away by myself at tone, but these are foods I am very interested in sampling while in Vienna.

    Wow looks awesome!! I hope you have a great trip!
    Sampling coffee from around Europe must be so awesome. I still have yet to do a Euro trip, but it’s something I’ll have to try when I finally get around to it!

    As an Austrian I would recommend you to go to “Kahlenberg” or “Bellevue Wiese Wien” (secret advice). There you will find a wonderful view over the whole city. Just google it or ask around if you have free-time left. Enjoy your stay in Vienna! 🙂
