Hermosa ciudad. Algun día volvete Austria🇦🇹❤️🇵🇪



When your friend lives in the hundertwasserhaus and she gave you an special interior tour
It was freaking awesome

Author — No one Has to know


Nice vid, love the commentary with it - makes it very lively and entertaining - keep the vid coming!

3:58: You are on the North Tower of the cathedral, which has never been finished, therefore shorter and has an elevator outside. The south Tower on the other side is higher, therefore the view is better, but u have to climbf a few hundred stairs. In the middle of the North Tower u have the Pummerin, the 2nd biggest free swinging bell in the world, you walked right past it. Its still active.
6:45 Ok so u went into ONE of the several museums and places u can visit at the Hofburg. And the most touristy one aswell^^ If u visit 4ex the National Library or the Treasure Chambers there is much more peace there (and lower ticket prices).
14:11 WIR means "us" and WIRR means "weird, exstranged, chaothic -> its mostly used in a mental sense"
19:42 Wiener Schnitzel = Cotoletta Milanese, thats where it comes from.
22:22 MQ is part of the Hofburg Palace
24:08 To be precise a Melange is a double Espresso + milk + whipped cream + (those a usually the secret touches that make it unique) some milk foam or a touch of warm water.
25:37 Topfen in english should be something along the line of curd cheese.
26:30 Alright, lets talk about tickets. 2, 20 is a sinlge adult ticket in one DIRECTION -> meaning u can use multiple transports with it asa u go one way. Apart of that u have 24h 7, 60€, 48h 13, 30€, 72h 16, 50€, weekly 16, 20€. Children under 6 don need one, aswell as under 15 during school holidays and under 24 if u are scholar at an austrian public school. Senior citizens from 62 onwards have cheaper versions also.
Apart of that there are special tickets like the wien-Karte and Vienna-Card (sound similar but are different things) which cost more than the usual but have either reduced entry frees to many attractions or free entry at all.
In many museums there is no fee for children under 19y. Most museums close on mondays.

U have missed: Belvedere Palace, Charles Church, Parliament, Town Hall, modern Vienna (Danube Tower).

PS: My favourite sausage in Vienna?...hmmmm...well, the best Ive eaten came straight from a butcher, freshly handmade a hours before.

Having been to Wien 4 times with a 5th coming this October and being a retired photographer the only thing I hate about Vienna is not being able to take pictures in so many of the beautiful buildings. Thankfully most churches do allow photography and I do remember taking pictures once in the National Library. Don't know if that has changed or not. Liked your video BTW.

So much appreciated the whole video, Thank you for sharing, can't wait for my Viena holiday!

Great video! I love how you solved the problem of the no-filming policy at Hofburg - "Look at their souvenir shop. You can imagine what the rest of the palace looks like". This was brilliant!

I was borned here and i still have no idea what the other places are😂

Author — XxMJxX


Can I buy fridge magnet at the Imperial Palace (without having to pay for the entrance fee) souvenir store or are they available at any other shop?

Author — DGee Abad


Is it me or does Sam kinda look like Michael Buble? ☺

Nice video ~ makes me want to fly home soon again! A bit of info that not many foreigners know is that the origional chocolate cake creation known as Sacher Torte is found at Café Demel ~ Sacher was an apprentice there, he stole the recipee made a minor adjustment and won the annual imperial baking competion of that time ~ thus naming the cake Sacher cake is tastier...and old family recipees are also better!

Well done! Used to visit my grandmother and great grandmother in the 11 bezierk. Brings back wonderful memories... Thanks for putting this together.

I need your help please, I'm traveling next summer to Europe but I haven't decided yet which city to visit, Barcelona or Vienna, so since you have visited both of them, which one do you recommend more? I like visiting ancient places and churches and also I love shopping.
