A beautiful city filled with incredible interiors, typically European buildings and a tram system that led me to consider relocating to Austria indefinitely. Though short, as many of my city breaks are, my counterpart and I managed to squeeze in many activities into the quaint three days. Museums, lunching’s and Christmas markets, Austria failed to disappoint.
Though a typically European aesthetic, Vienna’s buildings are frequently covered in graffiti, similarly to Shoreditch. The ‘wall art’ brought a sense of familiarity and homeliness to our trip as it’s so common throughout London. Having chosen the perfect location for a hotel – centered in Vienna – my freunde and I had no trouble darting around the city for fun and interesting things to do. Granted I’ve never visited Vienna before this venture, but I would imagine that Christmas – and the lead up to it – is the best time to visit the city as there are an array festive activities available to both tourists and locals. Warning: this piece features many photos of the back of me, but as you know it’s all for the aesthetics.
