Kiki In Vienna

What can be better than traveling to a beautiful city for a weekend getaway? Answer: Doing it all while barely spending a dime.  Or shall I say zehn rappen.
My husband and I spent three days in Vienna.  Which meant traveling eight hours (each way) by train from Zurich. Yes, 16 hours round trip was a bit much.  But we were lucky enough to travel premium class paying only 15% of the actually cost for two round trip tickets.  And I found a nice, clean, CHEAP hotel one block away from the Museum Quarters.  (Not to toot my own horn, but I am pretty good at finding quality, inexpensive hotels)

I liked Wien the first time I went, and was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and service oriented the Austrians are, ie, in comparison to what we get here in Switzerland.
Did you pig out on Sachertorte?.

No, I didnt eat Sachertorte. I saw Sachertorte being prepared at a bake off competition once. I didnt know that it was an Austrian dessert. Now Im upset that I didnt have any :(

Great pics! I especially like the panorama shots.

I'm really hoping to get to Switzerland one day. Seems that I have to plan well ahead because from Holland it isn't so cheap.
