Wiener Blut – 10 and 1 on top

Got home from a dinner last night with my lovely neighbors and friends from the “street” and had to think about two questions:


I have been so busy with planning our move, and being to melancholic about leaving Nebraska that it never crossed my mind until now, to think about what I am going to do first in Vienna – here are my first random thoughts (more to come – I am pretty sure):

  • I think about FOOD right away. Extra-Wurst-Semmer´l and some real dark bread.
  • a typical warm summer night, eating ice cream and strolling around the 1st district with all those historical landmarks and end up at the MuseumsQuartier with all of my friends.
  • surprising my husband – once more – with a romantic picnic on a rental boat at the “old danube” including sunset and mosquitos!Vienna Danube Picnic
  • going to a fully packed, totally sold out movie theatre (have you seen my Instagram with my husband sitting alone at the movie here in Nebraska?)
  • roam around NEUBAUgasse and looking for new spots in town. Taking a picture in front of our old apartment.
  • riding the tramway and listening carefully to the announcement … “Endstation Hietzing, umsteigen zu den Linien U4, 60,  bitte alle aussteigen”. waiting for the "bim"
  • taking the kids to the “böhmische Prater” (amusement park from the late 1880´s) and riding the “Raupe” and my favorite marry-go-round.
  • a night out dancing and eating a “Käsekrainer” at 3am at one of the remarkable Würstlstand (Hot Dog Stands). Süss oder scharf?
  • Coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee … every authentic coffee house from Diglas, to Prückel, to Sperl, everywhere – for sure not at Starbucks.
  • promenade along the crowded “Naschmarkt” – Fleamarket and looking for some finds and chocolate at ZOTTER.
  • sitting on a blanket at the city hall square, drinking a glass of wine, and listening to classical music. Hello Vienna.

  1. You’ll be shocked to find that the guy who used to do the announcement on the trams and subways has retired, and the voice is now a female one! 😉 The old voice is still on many trams and buses though. Just the subway that is fully updated by now.
