Wienwoche (14.02. – 18.02.2011): Our week in Vienna
We are back from Vienna! Thirty of us from 4a and 4b and Mr Pfalzer, Mrs Weinberger
and Mrs Kamleitner stayed at a youth hostel in Hirschengasse, which is not far
away from the centre of the city. We had a whole floor to ourselves so we could
play ping-pong, table football, watch TV or play games without any disturbance
from other groups. The drawback was that our rooms were on the sixth floor, so
we did a lot of walking up and down the stairs.
programme was really interesting: We visited a lot of Vienna’s famous sights
like St. Stephen’s Cathedral or Schönbrunn Palace, the Parliament Building or
the Kaisergruft, the burial place of the Austrian emperors and empresses. We
also saw a lot of Vienna’s modern buildings like the Hundertwasserhaus, the
Ernst Happel Stadium or the Danube Tower where we sat down for a refreshing
drink in the rotating restaurant.
our visit at the ORF-Zentrum - the headquarters of the Austrian Broadcasting
Corporation - we made a tour through the studios and made funny experiments in
the Blue Box Studio. A train ride to Schwechat took us to Vienna International
Airport. We passed the second of three security checks when we were on our bus
tour around the airport area. The third was at the beginning of our visit to
the Vienna International Centre (“UNO City”) when we left Austrian territory
for an hour and a half.
evening entertainment we went to the UCI cinema centre at Millenium City. We
watched a romantic comedy on Monday and a thriller on Tuesday. On Wednesday
evening nineteen of us stayed at the youth hostel to watch a football match or
play games, and eleven of us went on a tour of the inner city which led us to
the skating rink in front of Vienna City Hall. On Thursday, our last evening in
the city, we watched a musical at the Raimund Theater. It was really wonderful.
After that we went to a fast food restaurant and we returned to the youth
hostel at midnight.
visit to a baroque church - the Karlskirche - gave us the opportunity to go up
with a lift to watch the recently restored frescos. On Friday afternoon a coach
took us back home to Neustadtl. We arrived there in the evening quite exhausted
but full of impressions from a wonderful week in Vienna.
