Vienna City Centre Tour Day 2

As part of our tour in the Vienna city centre, the day has just begun. After quite long journey ending in St. Peter’s Catholic Church or Peterskirche, we decided to take a break from a café not too far from the famous shopping area of the city or center.

But before that, we had that opportunity to be amused with the designs of one of the city’s crowded places which are the shopping center. It has been the top 1 destination for those who love to shop cause everything you need especially luxurious stuff are here.

As we entered in this unanimous solicited Segafredo café, we opt to order coffees of course. Since it was freezing outside, my hands are extremely insensible, my ears are staring to fall (just kidding)! my ears are fine! It was actually the wind outside plus the 0-degree temperature made me felt like freezing alive.

Coffee Break

As they say, if you’re feeling cold you have to fill up your stomach with food so the food will consume the cold and you’ll feel better after. So what we did was, we ordered 2 coffees and 2 desserts.

While my partner was on his way to the bathroom I was in charged of the ordering. Finally, I stumbled across this two interesting desserts which are Apfelstrudel and Topfensstrudel. These two are typically Austrian tarts and the verdict? they were delicious! We divided half of each and gave it other half.

Another weirdest thing was: the coffee served with a glass of water, weird right? This perhaps is one of the Austrian traditions as well that made us not that shock but curious I guess.

Palais Palffy

Palais Pálffy

Palais Palffy is a Cultural center & Art museum with lavish rooms for hire in a former aristocratic 1400s mansion. This was our first destination after that break. I thought it would be easy to find but we ended up circulating the whole area to find it.

It looks majestic! despite the night-time coming so soon at 3:00 pm I still manage to make this photo quite clear. I’m really impressed how they build this one cause the windows were symmetrically inclined to each other.

Pinocchio

As you all know, Vienna is the City of Opera. They also have Pinocchio Opera spectacle which made Pinocchio popular in this city. When I saw this toy store I was directly attracted by the puppet that looks the real Pinocchio puppet.

I reckoned those days where I watched this movie on cartoons and even the one made on film it was really touching and a lot of sentimental lessons to learn not just as a kid but in general.

Film Museum

While walking in the AugustinerStrase at the end of the road we found this another interesting place where Film Museum located. On its right side there’s this special stairs marked with Monet and Picasso on it. This place called Albertina.

We continued to the right side, next stop is to go home/hotel but as I’ve said we always have this tendency of passing by some attractions on the road. The first one was the Mozart Statue in a park it was on our way to take our metro and we saw it.

We all know that Vienna is artistically and intellectual legacy shaped by its famous residents including Beethoven, Sigmund Freud, and Mozart. It’s amazing to see how Mozart looks like well not in person but in a statue allure.

Getting to this place was truly an experience. Not just it’s full of christmas market all around but the decorations are pretty nice as well. Maria Theresien Platz is the center park between the two big buildings such as Museum of National History and Fine Arts Museum.

Finally, We weren’t going home yet, despite the non-appearance of sun, it didn’t stop us to explore wider. Those Christmas light indeed are enticing, with those candlelit charming glow of it makes you feel like it’s really happy and a jolly place to be.

After a long walk on this second day stays in Vienna City Centre is decisively comes to an end. We’ll now go to grab our metro in Volkstheater station to get to the tram stop station.

In all fairness to Vienna city centre metros, they are clean and tidy as always! litters weren’t shattered anywhere. People are law-abiding citizens, it somewhat reminds me when we were on our way to Votivkirche. 

While we were at the crossroad, people were really waiting for the street light to turn green even if the road is empty they still waited until people can officially cross the road.

At last, we arrived at Rathaus station and we are now getting our next mode of transportation Tram! but before that, we bought some special Austrian bread freshly made I’m sure we will love it.

It was a great tour here in Vienna City Centre, I can’t wait to show you what happens on the next day! For now just a suspense more for you. Thank you for reading our story hopefully you’ll follow me and my hubby’s next destination spot in Vienna.

      Hey Elizabeth, oh the the Austrian bread was delicious, we brought it with us at the hotel and ate them there as our supper. I know we don’t eat so much at night so it was a great deal not to spend too much at the same time.
