Thursday, the last day we could spend in Vienna. We didn't actually have any plans, so we decided to just walk and see where we ended up. We had one thing planned, and that was the Sacher Torte. Of course in Hotel Sacher. It was the only day it rained a bit, so we decided to take the subway (again, yes) instead of walking to the Opera, and from there moving on to the Sacher Hotel.
Fortunately the raining stopped and we could sit outside, with a jacket, in the Sacher 'Ecke. The Torte is just something you have to eat when you're in Vienna apparently...and so we did. It tasted nice, but to be honest it wasn't a very special piece of pie. But chocolate is always good! ;)

From there on we walked through the most expensive shopping street in Vienna, where for example a watch just costs about 1500,00 Euro.

The Albertina
..and that was cheap. In that street were also the Swarovsky shops, Gucci, Burberry and so on. A lot of glamour to look at.

We walked to the Albertina, but decided we saw enough paintings already and only viewed the outside. We'll save the impressionist paintings for next time. Moving on towards the Museum Quartier, and from there on to the Maria Hilferstrasse where we had lunch, and shopped a little bit. Didn't buy much aside from a few souvenirs, but it was fun. And later on we saw Inglorious Bastards with our friend where we are staying and another friend of his. The movie is pretty gore somethimes, but it has it's good parts too.


We finished our last night at a lounge called Stylez. In Happy Hour *yay* only i didn't think i'd get a tequila sunrise of about 0.5 l...So that was bigger then i thought. But it was the last night, so what! :D
We only had to get up at 6 am, so that was a bit too early...but after a good breakfast at the airport everything was ok again.

Vienna is a city you really do have to see at least once, not only because of it's beauty, but also to experience how peaceful a big city can be. We will go back, maybe next year or the year after that...there is just so much to see, so much to do...it's simply wonderful.
