Final Adventures in Wien

Katherine (Nina) Jones
May 27, 2014

During my final weeks in Vienna, I wanted to take full advantage of what the city had to offer or, as IES Abroad likes to say, “squeeze the juice.”

I went with two friends on a day trip to Bad Vöslau, a thermal spa about thirty minutes outside Vienna. “Thermal” turned out to be a loose term, but it was a beautiful day and we were able to enjoy a quick swim and some Austrian wine.

Almost sunset at Bad Vöslau.

Wandered around Zentralfriedhof, which is a giant cemetery that apparently hold more dead people than currently live in Vienna.

Beethoven’s grave.

And, one of the most Austrian activities of the semester: dinner and wine at a heuriger.

The restaurant part of the heuriger.

Other activities, for which I do not have pictures, include picnicking at Schönbrunn one last time, going to a board game bar, and touring Schönbrunn Palace.
