i think that vienna is underrated: people just see the traditional, proper side of it. it’s actually a very cool, happening place if you take time to discover it.

the following events are all taking place currently in vienna.

– artist olafur eliasson brings yellow fog to vienna

– frida kahlo at the bank austria kunstforum

michelangelo’s drawings and picasso in albertina

– rodin at the belvedere

– next week is vienna art week

photography month

– if u plan to do this, you will need the vienna card. unlimited public transport use as well as a lot of discounts

also, my personal top 5:

1. museum quartier

2. neubaugasse

3. ramien on gumpendorferstrasse, for amazing asian dishes and relaxed atmosphere

4. on saturdays, early morning – the flea market, then breakfast in naschmarkt, then go to mak (free entrance on saturdays). they have a great bistro where you can have lunch.  then walk around the city, perhaps go see hundertwasser’s buildings.

5. everyday must end in flex

and now I’m thinking: why am i not going myself?…
