Visit to Wien written by my son
Hi to my mom’s friends! I couldn’t wait to write another blog post. Did you read my post from last year? (click HERE) This time I took a longer train ride to Wien, Austria. I stayed for three days. This post is about just Wien, so I’ll call it part one, because I visited other places as well.
I toured the Hofburg Complex which is home to the Austrian National Library, an armor museum, and an instrument museum:
All the armor is so cool:
My Favorite in Wien is Schönbrunn Palace:
I also visited Karlskirche. I got to take an elevator onto a platform inside of the dome!
Another pretty church is Schottenkirche at night:
Taking notes of what I ate. I ate a broth with noodles, carrots, potatoes, and squash. But I only ate a broth because I wanted to eat a special Wien dessert called “Kaiserschmarrn”.
|Taking a break because my feet were BURNING WITH PAIN from too much walking.|
My second favorite place in Wien is Stephansdom. This is the most iconic building in Wien, and probably the best crypt ever. I love creepy things!
Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) is also where I ate the second food picture:
I have only two food pictures from Wien ;( The first one I’m eating the Schnitzel
In the next photo I’m eating dumplings with sauerkraut and roasted pork.
And this following wallpaper in a store made me think of my mom. Do you know our plates?
I will also write another post about two other places I visited. If I put Wien on a list of my favorite places I ever visited it would be #3 under #2 Paris and Prague as number one but above Salzburg. Wien also had some very enjoyable food. Here are some food suggestions if you ever go there: of course Wiener Schnitzel and Kaiserschmarn (it means literally translated “Emperor’s Nonsense” which I think is funny)
I hope you liked my post because I’m writing another one for next Monday.
Like my mom says “Tschüss” but this time from me.
You are a young man after my own heart! I too love Vienna, and could easily live there.The food, the architecture, and the people – all so civilized..
Great post, thank you!
Thank you!!! 🙂
i love hearing from you, noa! great recap, and you are SO your mom’s son with your love of the creepy- but what can i say? i love it, too! and YES that wallpaper is SO your mom- good call! look forward to your next post! 🙂
Your trip sounds so wonderful. I want to know more about this Kaiserschmarn. Yes, I see the similarity with the plate wall and wall paper. Oh I make roast pork and sauerkraut frequently, it is one of my favorite dishes. Although I take the easy way and just toss some potatoes in mine. Looking forward to more posts from you.
Kaiserschmarn is chopped up pancakes with raisins and applesauce.
Great post…makes me want to visit! Looking forward to the next installment next week! 😉
You are a natural! You need your own Blog!!!!
Very smart in saving room for dessert, I would have done the same thing.
How lucky to have been to so many wonderful places! Can’t wait for Monday and your next Post!
OMG Schnitzel is my favorite. Imagine my surprise when I came to the US first and went to one of those Wienersnitzel places only to discover it was a fast food chain with no Wiener schnitzels in sight. I was so disapointed. Beautiful pictures!!
What is a Kaisersmarn? Is it some sort of Kugel?
Great post! I’ve always wanted to visit Austria! The pictures are beautiful! I wish they had food like that in the States!
oh my gosh- so cute!
i love that you are having your kids explore the world at such a young age. there’s so much to learn and I feel like your mind and heart are opened the more you travel!
Great post! Looking forward to hearing more next week!
Someone sign this kid up for a travel/food blog! 😉
Beautiful country. I love seeing those fantastic churches and buildings! Fun post, looking forward to next week. Can I travel with you? Ok, I will just do that through your posts! Thanks.
This is great!! I lived in Vienna for three years and will always consider it my second home. I really enjoyed hearing about your trip!!!
It sounds as though you are having a wonderful trip. I love the photos of all the beautiful architecture. Thanks so much for sharing with us. (And yes, the wallpaper reminds me of your mom’s kitchen, too!)
