Looook what Beatrice found!!! Wow!
I always state that I am not a horse person (I once was on a pony and instantly disliked riding animals) but there is just something about those elegant and strong animals that is fascinating.
When the Mister and me strolled through Burggarten we were surprised to see Lipizzaner with their foals in an enclosed area.
This one foal was so cute and nearly was always by his mums side!
The horses are a great way for advertising the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, which already is a huge tourist attraction but some extra cuteness never fails 😉
I finally tried out this place, having cycled past it a lot of times. It is located on the Donaukanal, just next to Badeschiff. It’s an American style BBQ restaurant. Something I really enjoyed was their selection of IPAs!! Hello, and YUM!! Indian Pale Ale is hard to come by in Vienna in general, and they had a cool selection. Not that cheap though, with the Sierra Nevada on the bottom end of the price scale at 4,90€. But worth it. Unfortunately I didn’t whip up my phone to take a picture of the food.. But I can assure you it was yummy! I had the pulled pork sandwich with kimchi, and a side of rocket and tomato salad. To die for. Portions are not huge, but they fill you up. And I guess that’s the most important thing about eating. This is the view when you’re leaning back satisfied, sipping your beer after a nice meal. I can recommend this place, yes.
It’s still months away from opening, but some of the platforms already have traffic. Here is a view towards Arsenal, Which is right on the edge of the new station. This place is massive. But then, it is going to be the main international train station in Vienna, which is smack in the middle of Europe, so I guess the size is justified. In September they are opening the shopping mall in the station, and the station itself will be fully operational in December. Go trains!
