2014 Vienna Program Day two


Hi again,
on we go with the second part of the meetup program here in Vienna

SATURDAY, 20.09.2014 09:30

Street, food, architecture, culture,…
It’s all in the bag for a great day in Vienna. Charge your batteries, check your memorycards and out we go!

Meeting point is right outside the underground station “Kettenbrückengasse” of the line U4 at 09:30 in the morning.
There are two exits, we use the one signed “Eggerthgasse” and meet upstairs at the exit doors. Take care, there will be many people around. The reason is the largest “flea market” in town, which takes place there every saturday.

As we walk towards the citycenter, we will eventually reach ““Naschmarkt”“, which is an open air food market with specialities from all over the world. Colorful, tasty, flavoury food awaits us while we stroll with the crowd along the food stalls and vendors. Some of them seriously shopping for the weekend, others just to breath in the atmosphere.
Going on we cross Karlsplatz and reach the famous “Ringstraße”. Along this boulevard you can find a lot of important buildings, such as the Vienna Opera House, the Parliament, the Burgtheater, the Vienna City Hall (in September Circus Roncalli puts up its tent right in front of it, maybe a motif for us), Museums, the University of Vienna and many more.

We walk along the street and here and then we look into a park or we make a short detour to take in the view from different angles.
Around noon we will reach the very center of Vienna at Stephansplatz overlooked by the monumental “St. Stephen’s Cathedral”. Around there we will look out for a nice place to get us some lunch.

After that I will guide you through the narrow streets of the first district to the Stadtpark. There we will meet Mr. Johann Strauß, the King of Waltz himself. Could be a nice background for our group shot. We then pass by the Konzerthaus and visit the “Hochstrahlbrunnen” at Schwarzenbergplatz. Back into the first district we walk towards Kärntner Straße, and from there to the Albertina, a museum with a good view at the “Opera House”. And finally I will take you to a surprise location, which is something, that no “normal tourist” will be able to see. I’m still negotiating this but it looks very good so far, that we will get it going.
So as you can see, there should be something for everyone inside the package ;-)
Don’t miss it!!

Be there!!
