"CIVIC PRIDE VIENNESE STYLE!" Vienna Local Custom Tip by themajor
Vienna Local Customs: 268 reviews and 356 photos
No doubt about it, Vienna is one of the world's most beautiful cities. More impressive still, the local inhabitants are trying their very best to keep it that way. For Vienna is one of the cleanest, sparkliest cities I have ever seen. You get the feeling that if a passer-by inadvertently dropped a crisp packet they would pick it up and then hand themselves into the nearest police station for suitable punishment. Having a working social conscience seems to be a rare thing nowadays. So whilst London is awash with litter and my own beloved Brighton rattles with the empty carcasses of polystyrene take-away containers, Vienna seems to take an hourly shower and regular rub-down. I mean, just look at the bath they're giving the Natural History Museum!
To be honest, if your hotel has a terrible shower I'd just pop into the city centre first thing, strip off, and stand in front of any classical facade that has a dirty mark on it. You're sure to come away with you're frontage freshened and your promentaries polished!
