One big museum !

Vienna is IMO one big museum.
After being in Budapest we were a bit reserved on Vienna, but this town so different.
We took a taxi to Stephansplatz and and that ride was like we were driving through a museum: Alle the beautiful buildings we passed, it was a pure display of beautiful architecture, it was so exciting!
At Stephansplatz we were overwhelmed by the height and beauty of the church, or cathedral: the Stephansdom. I tried to make a picture of it, showing it completely, but it was impossible for me to capture it. When looking high up for too long I risk a stroke of Menière, and I would not spoil my last day of this trip with being dizzy from fertigo all the time. So we took the pictures we could, and walked around the church, before we were going to have an early dinner.
Feeling quite relaxed now, we were ready for slowly heading back to the Westbahnhof, but not after gazing at all these beautiful buildings.
We walked about 1 kilometre, but it took us about 45 minutes. It was just great, the weather was very nice, even at 18.00 hours it still was 31 Celsius, and the buildings were gorgeous. The one which amazed me most was a building, some kind of museum, in which the road just went on.
But now we had one more train to catch, so time to grab a taxi to bring us back to the railwaystation.
When we finally found one, the driver acts like he wanted to win the race (which race?), but with the windows open and that speed, we had plenty of wind blowing inside, cooling us a bit. Because of that speed we made it in plain time for our train, so we lazied a bit around, drinking coffee, before we entered our train and looked for our compartment - this time we again had a compartment just for the four of us, nice and comfortable.
