Field Trips

One of the things that I have really appreciated about the academics at IES Abroad Vienna is the numerous in-class field trips that we get to do. One of my classes, Vienna: Past & Present, has a field trip to a relevant site in Vienna every Wednesday, and a couple others have used class time to take us to really cool places like the United Nations and the nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf.

We visited Karlskirche (St. Charles’s Church) with Vienna: Past & Present.

My Political Geography class took a tour of the Austrian parliament building when we were learning about the Austrian political system.

A set of regulation underwear at the nuclear power plant.

The control center at the nuclear power plant. We got to press a lot of buttons.

These are just a few of the cool places I have been with various classes.

The field trip experiences have not only helped me get to know Vienna better as a city, but has also set my academic experience here apart from classes during a normal semester at home.
