Austria: Suffocatingly Beautiful Vienna

When I first arrived in Germany, I couldn’t even utter a German sound. There was this friendly chap, who could speak fluent German, and didn’t mind to teach me that difficult language. Subsequently, he even invited a Cambodian friend and me to stay at his friend’s place in Vienna. This was how I ended up visiting this beautiful city in Austria over the weekend (02.09.2010 -06.09.2010) ~~

To give you an orientation of Vienna, here is a map of the city, which I tore off from the local tour magazine. As you can (probably) see, the famous Schloss Schönbrunn is at the south east corner outside the inner city (see the small zoom-out map at the bottom right hand corner), while the Riesenrad is in the north east, on the other side of the Danube Canal (Donaucanal, colored as blue in the map) :

Two full days are enough to tour around the important sights in Vienna. (more…)
