Home Hotel Romischer Kaiser Sights in Vienna Architecture in Vienna Markets in Vienna Meals in Vienna Art in Vienna


We arrived at our hotel, the Hotel Romischer Kaiser, in a pedestrian-only part of Vienna. The taxi driver backed down the pedestrian-only street to deliver us to the front door. He didn't know there was a back door more accessible to motor vehicles. It was very quiet.

We went to the Mozart concert in the Music Verein.

The next day we walked to the Belvedere Castle, south of the old city. More sights. More architecture.

We discovered the Nasch Markt on our way back and had lunch there. More market pics.

That evening we had dinner at the Cafe Fauberg with Horst and Rita, a couple Steve and Leslie had met in NYC. It was the first of many delightful meals on this trip.

And Shirley connected with Ingolf Wunder, a young pianist interested in coming to the United States to continue his studies.

We visited the Vera Sacrum, where Steve wanted to be photographed with this painting. More art.

We also visited the Leopold Museum followed by lunch in Museum Plaz. More art. More sights.

We toured the Jewish part of the city with a wonderful guide.

We took a cab to the Schonbrunn Palace. The grounds were much more interesting than the interior. More sights. More architecture.
