London, Vienna, Prague Trip Report -- Part 4 First Evening in Vienna

Jump to last reply

Trip report Part 4 – Vienna Monday Evening

By the time we settled in to our Vienna hotel, it was about 4PM. We took the #1 tram from Matzleinsdorfplatz, just down the street from our hotel, to Karlplatz. At Karlsplatz we took some pictures in front of the Karlskirche, an interesting building combining roman revival columns and a baroque dome. The weather was sunny but chilly. I was trying to get to Am Hof, as another poster had mentioned that there would be an Easter Market there. I thought about walking from Karlsplatz, as the hotel clerk had suggested, but decided, instead, to take the metro to Stephensplatz. That would be the route we took every day, tram to Karlplatz then metro. When we exited at Stephensplatz, we asked directions to Am Hof and started walking that way.
Along the way we came to Michaelerplatz. When I got there I knew I was in glorious Vienna. With the magnificent Baroque Hofburg Palace entrance framed by the giant statues of Hercules in front of us and the beautiful Michaeler church with it's polygonal Gothic bell tower, to the left, I’m not sure I was ever in a more beautiful place architecturally speaking. Then the bells of the church started ringing, adding to the beautiful atmosphere.
We also, took a look at the Roman ruins, and read the story of the Loos building (the windows have no 'eyebrows') and continued walking around. We walked on Kohlmarket, my wife was impressed by the name brand stores, and Graben. There was a blind man singing. We could not find Am Hof. We started getting hungry and read in the guidebook about a couple of restaurants. I realized that to find them, I had to find Am Hof first, as the guide directions started from that point.
We saw two older well-dressed gentlemen walk by and I took a chance that they knew the area and spoke English, and asked them for directions to Am Hof. They asked where we were from. I said New York and one of them said he had been there more than 40 times. They pointed us in the direction of Am Hof. Then I thought I’d just ask them where the restaurant was, instead. I showed them the names of the 2 restaurants we were considering and the gentleman told us which one he preferred, so we went to eat at Ofenloch.
It was a wonderful restaurant, very elegant with great service. My wife had the Viennese Soup with Noodles and a Veal Dish. I had some kind of bone marrow dish which came with soup. My wife had a couple of glasses of wine and I had a couple of beers. We shared an apple strudel. The meal was great and it came to about $83 including tip. After that we walked around a bit more, we bought a sausage in bread from a kiosk and took it back to the room for later. I like the high quality sausages available in Vienna. One thing I took note of is how uncrowded Vienna felt as compared to London.
