My Summer trip (5) ~Vienna~

                    
               Vienna

We came our goal ,Vienna.
We had dinner at the oldest restaurant "Griechenbeisl" that has "Mark Twain Room". The room's celling or wall are filled with signs of a lot of famous people,such as Mozart,Beethoven or Schubert,Strauss.    a sommelier guide us there,singing a passage of Mozart's opera. His voice was nice, truly. We tried some traditional dishes, WinnerSchnitzel, Gulasch or Zwiebel Rostbraten and Kartoffelsuppe. As we can't read German menu , we ordered them by  pointing pictures in a guidebook. This is a good idea.

Do you know which sign is Mozart :at Griechenbeisl
Next, Palace Schonbrunn. What a big!  It's Habsburger. I was surprised with it's bigness.
I could see reason that Marie-Antoinette married into King of France . The garden was so large that we stopped visiting there.

We went to  have a cup of coffee of Vienna at cafe "Gerstner KHM" in Kunsthistorisches Museum. Decoration of this cafe was fantastic. Marble pillars, geometrical figures floor and they take in a part of museum decoration.  The work of Bruegel  or Rubens,etc were displayed.

It's hot day on that day and we were tired.So we wanted to take a nap on the grass in the park as many people were doing. It's cool in shade under trees and comfortable. After taking nap for 30 minutes, my husband said " This guidebook is saying that there are ticks in grass of Vienna".I jumped out of grass.


before a concert in St.Stephansdom









We checked a big supermarket or got Sachertorte.
We had dinner at the roof restaurant  in hotel hastily as we planned to go to listen to a concert at St. Stephansdom next door. It's Italian but dishes tasted nice. We thought this is the best savor of all dishes we had in this trip.It amuse me a little.






There were nothing big concert on that day in Vienna ,too.  So we listened to a chamber concert in St.Stephansdom. The sound reverberated  in dome well and  "Aria on G string" as an encore was right in the dome. I thought Virgin Mary and angels on the top of the altar are satisfied with this pure melody every night.




We  could tasted supreme beer around German and Austria.
It's good to be able to see culture or people  in Germany and Austria. I didn't know that countries in the center of  Continent are so attractive. Because I didn't  know about history around here well, such as Habsburger or Bayern Kingdom, etc. Also I didn't  know  that  Japan  is  larger  than  Germany.
I forgot to take battery of camera. So though we took two cameras but we couldn't take one of them after Rothenburg.
I couldn't get used to Cent Euro and I couldn't calculate tip smoothly.
I want to come  to enjoy Vienna more again.

Thank you for reading this for long time.

I'm hooked on Mass music now. How wonderful it would be if I could listen to such music at such churches you visited!

Thank you for comment,Cosmos.
I think it will be fine. Doms of church ring out voice of Mass or a pipe organ. Maybe, Sarah Brightman held a Christmas Concert at St.Stephandoms.I watched it onTV.

An excellent record, in text and pictures. Although I was born in Europe, Vienna waits for me.

Thank you Marc for "Vienna waits for you." So since you were born in Europe, "Vienna waits for me"? I saw sights in this video and I remembered some sights in the distant memory. Time flies. Why don't I realize, Vienna waits for me.
