Just a normal day, a normal ride on the tram, during the less busy hours of the day.
I rode past the skating course yesterday… calling it a rink would be a bit of an understatement, as they’ve made a nice track through the trees with lights and decorations. Looks nice eh? 🙂
If you want to see the main sites in Vienna, but don’t feel like forking out for a tourist bus, you can get a day-pass (unless you already have one with Wienerlinien, then you don’t need to do anything more) and take the the D-line from one end to the next. It passes most of the important things in Vienna, and goes at a leisurely pace. You’ll pass the important theaters, the parliament, most of the museums, the opera house, Belvedere castle, Fernwärme Wien (a building designed by Hundertwasser)… Really, if you want a hop-on hop-off line that doesn’t have an extra price tag, and that is also not full of tourists – it’s the perfect choice. 😉
the Vienna street car museum is located in the third district. Incidentally right next to a really nice heurigen in the city.. that I still haven’t been to! Actually haven’t been to either of them… I’d better get onto it!
The annual transport fee in Vienna is really low compared with other capitals in Europe. Without any reduction it’s 32 Euro per month, which is an absolute bargain when you consider that a single journey costs 2 Euro. It’s issued by Wienerlinien, and is valid on all trams, buses, subways and ‘schnellbahn,’ which are regional trains that pass through Vienna. Threre is a boundary, but you can travel quite far away already with it, as far as Liesing when you go southwards! And, they don’t care what kind of picture you use.. lol. This picture was taken at a party. 😉
