When visiting Vienna, you might be amazed at the crowd of tourists pouring into/ out of cafes, museums and shops. Nevertheless, such crowd is not tiredsome.
I marvelled again at the hostpitality of the Viennese people. I love the way they carry on with their lives calm and serene. And the way they are willing to help you out, even without you asking for it. I had the most wonderful experience with a Viennese woman. I was lost and I was taking the map out of my backpack. She was parking her bike and seeing me, she told me something in German. As I looked at her, seemingly not understanding what she said, she switched to English and asked me if she can be of service. I told her the name of the street I was looking for. She directed me to it, wished me a nice day and left.
Besides views, either from Belvedere Palace or Danube Tower, Vienna has many other wonderful things to offer, such as: lounges where you can have great cups of coffee, restaurants with exceptional food, chocolateries, a great variety of museums and parks, markets and most comfortable and easy to use means of transportation.
