Binny’s Vienna Diaries – Day 4

Binny’s Vienna Diaries – Day 4

Our last day in Vienna was a pretty chilled out one. We woke up leisurely, packed everything up and headed out in search of refuge in a cosy cafe for lunch.

We decided to go to Cafe Mozart, as I am a fan having played some of his pieces for some of my piano exams back in the day. 

Caffeine was much needed and it was absolutely freezing so I ordered a latte.   
Amit went for Chocolate Mousse on sponge cake for lunch. Ahem. To be fair the cafe had a massive display of different cakes and desserts it was difficult to resist.

 
As I am more sensible (!!) I tried a spinach and cheese strudel which was gorgeous. It came with a garlic herb dip which just took it to the next level.

   
  

We then walked around the central part and did a bit of shopping.   
Soon we stumbled across the market place so wandered around looking at the different shops and restaurants within the market area.

Cheese was massive!

   

Loved the variety of fruit and veg in this stall.

  

There were lots of Christmas goodies too.  
 

I saw a spice stall but the lady was against having photos taken so unfortunately can’t share.

It was so cold we then went to look for the closest Aida Cafe and went in for hot chocolate and cake. Pictured below is a hazelnut torte with walnuts on top.
   
 

After that we headed back to the hotel and had a look at all the art on display. My favourites are pictured below.
   

We had a fabulous time in Vienna and it was a lovely time of year to experience it as it was so festive. It is freezing so best to have a thick coat, scarf and gloves and boots. It does add to the winter charm as everything looks magical.

We got to see the Christmas markets at Schönbrunn palace (pictured below) and had amazing food (Sacher Torte and sweet and savoury strudels). Would highly recommend it as a winter city break.

There is lots to see and do and you can also take a day trip to Salzburg. We didn’t go this time round but definitely next time.  
We are now off to Lisbon for a couple of days where it will be warmer and sunnier!
