Postcards from…Vienna

Before visiting Vienna, I thought it was just going to be pretty buildings and an Opera House. Although I only had a short time in the city, I quickly realised it has so much more to offer than just some fancy brickwork, and it’s the reason I’ll be heading back there at some point in the future.

I couldn’t quite put my finger on what I loved about the city, but just being there I felt so cultured and I knew that I had to find a postcard with a bit of everything about the city. Although I couldn’t find one with all the greats, this one definitely reminds me of how pretty the city is!

My absolute favourite thing about Vienna was Hundertwasser Village. I’m a huge fan of the  Spanish architect Gaudi, and this place just reminded me so much of his work. Bright colours, different shapes and something that was fun to look at. I had to grab a postcard of this place, but sadly I didn’t get one that showed the shopping area opposite which I actually loved even more than this building. I would definitely recommend stopping by here if you’re ever in Vienna, not just because it’s something different, but because it is so different to the architectural style found in the rest of the city.

    Wonderful post. I saw the Vienna you described–all baroque castles and opera and a bit of Klimt thrown in. I like your take on this vibrant city. Thanks.

    I’m heading to Vienna in a few days, this looks so different than the average building I may just pay it a visit, thanks! 🙂

    • I’d definitely recommend it, especially as it’s only a short walk from the centre. There’s a ‘shopping centre’ – a few shops – opposite that I absolutely loved. I popped to use the toilet while there, and they have the strangest voiceover playing while you’re in there. If you go, let me know what you think! Have a great time 🙂

    I only got to spend one day in Vienna which wasn’t nearly enough. Definitely a place I want to return to so I’ll keep this tip in mind, thank you!
