17-18 Aug - Vienna, Austria

September 18, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

17-18 Aug - After leaving Komarom we cruised the Danube arriving in Vienna, Austria in the early evening. After a luxurious dinner on the Viking Skirnir we got on a bus and traveled to the Palais Auersperg which was built between 1706 and 1710. Here we were treated to a Mozart & Strauss concert. On the 18th we toured a number of historical sights including St. Stephens Cathedral, Vienna’s most recognizable landmark; it’s South Tower projects 449’ above Vienna’s City Centre. We also toured the exterior of the Imperial Court Palace (AKA: Hofburg Palace), a truly magnificent work of architecture built between 1711 and 1740. Together with its many squares and gardens, the palace (Hofburg) occupies an area of some 59 acres and is, in many ways, a "city-within-a-city" comprising 18 groups of buildings, 19 courtyards and a staggering 2,600 rooms. I would love to spend a couple weeks visiting this amazing city.
