Even though it was a chilly two degrees when I visited Austria’s capital, I quickly fell in love with this gorgeous old city. Here are a few reasons why…
The giant horse statue outside Hofburg Palace! P.S We were staying just across the road from the palace.
St Stephen’s Cathedral – the symbol of Vienna.
Construction of the gothic church started in the 12th century!
Taking a sneaky pic with Mozart in his Vienna residence.
The lovely wintery streets of Wien. ❤
Vienna is chocolate heaven. What other city has a chocolate drink and a chocolate cake named after it?! Just mention ‘chocolate’ and you’re speaking my language. So as you can imagine, my trip to Vienna wasn’t complete without a Vienna hot chocolate AND a Vienna chocolate cake in a fancy hotel. This leads me to my first European holiday rule: one can NEVER have too much chocolate!
Up next: Munich! The land of meat. Seriously… it’s no place for vegetarians!
