Trip Report – Part 5 - First full day in Vienna

We started the day as usual with the walk to outside the Evangelist Church outside our hotel, where we catch the #1 tram to Karlsplatz. I decided we would go to the Naschmarkt. Up until now I thought the name was Nachtmarkt, and was wondering why it was open in the day time. Now it makes more sense, the Nosh Market.

Nosh we did, the first thing I saw was the giant triangle Borek. My grandmother used to make borekas when I was young, they were triangular and made with phyllo dough, and had a potato and spinach filling, as well, but her’s were about a fifth of the size. I bought one and split it with my wife. We also bought a bag of nougat pieces, which I ate too many of. My wife wanted to try the olives with chili peppers , but she didn’t like them , so I pulled out the chili peppers and ate all the olives.

We walked some more and went and sat down inside the café DoAn. It looked like a lot of locals were having their lunch break there. It was very reasonably priced. We looked over at what the 2 young guys next to us were having and we ordered the exact same thing. A skewer of grilled chicken breast with mango chutney , my wifes was with some indian spices and basmati rice. It was very good and I recommend it.

After that we stopped in at the Museum Café and had a couple of desserts, a chocolate tort and an apple strudel drowned in vanilla sauce, and some coffees with schlagobers (whipped cream.) You’ve got to love those Viennese cafes. I remember when I was young and worked in a catering hall, at the end of the banquet they always brought out the Viennese Table, filled with assorted pastries, now I know why it’s called that.

I don’t remember the exact order we did things after that but some of the things we passed were the Opera House, The Secession Building, The Albertina Museum, The Sacher Hotel, The Memorial Square where there is a monument commemorating the Nazi takeover of Vienna, Graben, St Stephensplatz, The Plague Column, St Peters. The more I watch my video, the more I appreciate how beautiful it all is.

My wife shopped in Humanic and bought a pair of boots. After that we walked through the gate into the Hofburg courtyard and walked past the Hofburg Palace , marveling at its enormity.

It was late afternoon and we were deciding whether or not to try to go to a Heuriger. I saw the D tram and decided to go for it. We got on the tram and rode all the way to Nussdorf , we didn’t see anything there so I asked a lady how to get Heigelinstadt and she told us to go back a couple of stops. We got off the tram in Heigelinstadt, but no one seemed to know where Pfarrplatz was, so I found my way over to the Heigelinstadt metro station and from there followed the guide book directions onto the 38a bus and over to Pfarrplatz.

We took some pictures in the charming square and walked over to the Beethoven house for more pictures. We came back to the square and looked into the back yard of the Mayer Heuriger, but no one was sitting out there, it was too cold. We thought about leaving but instead looked inside the building , and lo and behold there were a lot of people in there.

We got a table, my wife had the dumplings, I had the boiled beef we knocked off a bottle of some Mayer Riesling wine. There was a man playing the Viennese waltz on an accordion. Another enjoyable meal.
