A very short trip to Vienna

Last October, I finally had a chance to visit Vienna for a business trip. As it was a Monday morning meeting, I flew to Vienna on Sunday morning from Paris. I arrived at Vienna international airport and took a taxi to get to the hotel. It costs around 50€. The hotel is located pretty close to the River Danube and 2 km away from the city center. The hotel itself was pretty vintage, I had single bedroom with a small shower and toilet.

Here’s the address:
Hotel Urania
Obere Weißgerberstraße 7, 1030 Wien, Austria

After checked-in and put the luggage, I decided to walk to the town to get some lunch, and find this very nice Korean restaurant on my way to the town center.

It was surprisingly good and it wasn’t expensive at all if I compare it to a Korean restaurant in Paris.

Here’s the good address:
Yori Korean Dining
Wiesingerstraße 8
A-1010 Wien, Österreich

I had their homemade limonade for 4.9€ and a bulgogi set for 13.90€ .

I was actually glad that they forgot to bring me the dessert , otherwise I wouldn’t be able to taste this popular cake shop in Vienna, ” DEMEL ” a salon serving specialties such as cream cakes, scones & strudels, with shady terrace since 1888. You need to queue at least for 15 to 20 minutes before getting your table.

I actually went there, because my colleague said that I should definitely come here, and he recommended me to taste their Apfelstrudel or Chocolate cake. As I didn’t want to regret not choosing the right thing, I ended up buying both of them.

After having tea-cake stop, I continued walking and strolling around the town center. It was quite busy Sunday, eventhough most of the stores were closed. I didn’t stay up late, as I didn’t want to get tired for the meetings, so I went back to the hotel before sunsets.

I woke up the next morning pretty early as I wanted to buy some souvenirs just in case I wouldn’t have time before I flew back to Paris. I decided to google the nearest souvenirs shops, and suprisingly found another tourist area, which actually located just 5 minutes away from the hotel. The place called Hundertwasser Village. It was built both on the inside and the exterior by concepts of artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser during the years 1990 and 1991. The building was used as car tyre factory before that time. Since then, this building is flooding by visitors as one of popular tourist attraction in Vienna. (Source: click here)
