Lippizaner Happiness im Burggarten

#wovparkcollection, In Vienna

Es ist wieder die Jahreszeit gekommen, wenn jeder nach „Wie geht es Dir?“ direkt fragt, wo es auf Urlaub hingeht. Als ich letzte Woche spontan „ Ich hab‘s nicht so mit All Inklusive Buffets und Massentourismus zur Hauptreisezeit.“ geantwortet habe, war die Stimmung auch gleich am Nullpunkt. #sorrynotsorry, aber das ist meine persönliche Empfindung.

Viennas parks are always a joy. This weekend we have the pleasure of a beautiful little market festival in addition. Right infront of the modern architecture of the 25hours Hotel in the Weghuber Park, and the Palais Trautson serves with the classic sight backdrop.

Viennese Phrases to know: Fiaker

In Vienna

My favorite shot of the week: White Fiaker Horses in the city center of Vienna on Michaelerplatz infront of the entrance of our majestic Hofburg. A thing every tourist should have in his photo album when leaving Vienna: Fiaker and viennese architecture.

I am living in Vienna, so buying a ride on a Fiaker is not a usual thing for residents. But I had the pleasure once, and I remember, I felt very special in the carriage. It is kind of that ‚princess for a day‘ moment.

But what is a ‚Fiaker‘?

A Fiaker is a horse-drawn four-wheeled carriage for hire. You will find some at any touristic corner of Vienna. In the 19. century there were about 1000 horse-carriages available, while today only about 10%-15% are offered for hiring. You can book your ride online in advance. I would recommend checking prices and carriage, when in Vienna. Regular Tour-Prices start at 90 Euros for 40 minutes for up to 4 people per carriage.
