Vienna & Architecture: a visitor’s view, 03-06 November 2012

Vienna greets you with music… Wall sized scores like this of ”The Merry Widow”, Franz Lehár, [operetta that premiered in 1905], welcome you on arrival at the airport.

Which, by the way, ticks all the pluses: welcoming, organised, clean, perfectly equipped with comfy sofas to lay down, you poor stranded traveler, or sit and surf for hours in the free wi-fi spots, just enough shops and cafes and delis…. just right full stop.

Then, you take the CAT [City Airport Train] non-stop to Wien-Mitte, a very convenient station, linked with subway, buses and taxis, and, here you are, surrounded by the most gorgeous buildings, from Baroque and Greek Revival style, to Otto Wagner’s Jugendstil and the class-of-his-own Hundertwasser! In-between you are usually in awe of the wide boulevards lined with these massive, yet elegant constructions.
