"While in Vienna - just sit back and watch!" Vienna Favorite Tip by MarieGutscher

Vienna General: 612 reviews and 771 photos

  Outdoor Cafe - Darryl writing a jounal
by MarieGutscher

Favorite thing: Here's a tip - slow down - don't try and see everything at once! Even if you miss the Spanish Riding School - it will give you an excuse to come back to Vienna.

Now, just imagine you are sitting on a sunny spring day at an outdoor cafe in Vienna sipping the best coffee you have ever tasted.

Now look around, do you see the spectacular architecture, the fountains and magnificent statues.

Can you see the other tourists, the people of all ethnic backgrounds strolling and admiring the sites just as you were before you stopped to rest your weary feet.

You watch the business men and women walking briskly by in their Armani suits with their Louis Vuitton briefcases and their Versace sunglasses. Where are they going in such a hurry? You sigh, sip your coffee and think how glad you are to be relaxing in such glorious surroundings.

Oh and the people with their dogs! Have you ever seen so many dogs in a metropolis? You see a woman walking with an empty leash in her hand.
She stops near your table and calls for her dog. The little black Lhaso Apso is a good 15 feet behind and busy sniffing a tourist’s shopping bag.
The woman calls again. The playful little pup gets down on his haunches and barks his response. He’s not going anywhere! Finally the owner gives up and walks away swinging the leash in her hand. The pup races up and grabs hold of the leash and begins to walk its owner.

You look around and think "This - is Vienna!"

Stop and use all of your five senses while in Vienna!
