Venue: Vienna, Austria
Only Registration Includes:
If you could give your heart to a city, which city would you choose? The city of Vienna captured my soul and my heart belongs to it. It is a serious-looking city, full of right angles and old historical streets. It screams majestic, and you can almost see the phantoms from eras past travelling through the air in gorgeous gowns . Vienna is worth a visit for her face and culture is as old as Europe herself— from her cuisine, street performances, and architecture.
Vienna is full of food contrasts. On one side of the street is Vienna's street food, on the other side are fancy restaurants. The sausage stands came really handy, whenever I took a long walk and wanted something to eat while sight seeing. They usually serve a proper sausage like Käsekrainer, Bosna, and Burenwurst with fillings like pickles, sauerkraut, and caramelized onions. There are so many gourmet and quality restaurants all over Vienna that sometimes it is hard to pick. Once I went to a Viennese tavern, called Wirtshäuser or Beisln, where I had a simple hearty comfort meal, that included some great crispy skinned pork, sauteed sauerkraut, and a cold potato salad. I enjoyed it very much! The other one I explored, was the restaurant of contradiction between the extravagant and the fun. They served Gulasch (similar to steak tartare), basically raw meat. Even though it was fancy and I felt like there was royal blood running through my veins, I ended up not eating it, but I paid the full price for it. However, it was a great experience and I would love to go back and enjoy more edible food.
Vienna is a city of wonderful music and freedom of art.
