Vienna, Austria

On Thursday, July 11th we rode east to Mitterbach, a small ski town near a pretty lake.

On Friday, July 12th we rode into Vienna and took the underground into Vienna and a beyond to find a bank and laundromat to do some washing. That evening we found a great outdoor restaurant on the Danube river in a lake type area in walking distance from our hotel.  The Zur Alten Kaisermule was established in 1893 and we went back again on Sunday night too as the food was excellent and cooked on an outdoor barbecue.

On Saturday, July 13th we took the underground into Vienna and did a bus tour in the morning and then walked around Vienna.

Me with Mozart.  :D

Saturday night we went to see the Vienna Mozart Orchestra.

On Sunday, 14th July we went on a Danube river cruise which was interesting when we came to the lock and had to wait for the water to rise.

Sunday after I went off to the Hundertwasser museum and village.  I first heard of artist and architect Hundertwasser in March 2011 when I was at the Flora Bowley workshop and some of the ladies there recognised my work as being similiar to Hundertwasser's work. My painting is on the left and some of Hundertwasser's paintings/postcards on the right.

No photos were allowed inside the museum.

On Monday we left Austria for the Czech Republic, so that's the next blog...coming soon I hope.

Auf wiedersehen from Dreden, Germany....have a great weekend.
