Photography: Margarita Shut

I feel a little bad about all the radio silence here but I need to finish a thesis for the University of Vienna that has to be ready by the 20th of April. So, apart from the photography love, I am still a student who deals with thesis and deadlines. However, I always try to find a bit of time for a little stroll in the center of Vienna during the day and I promise to myself that I can always study at night. This time Margarita joined me to that little stroll, and as she always carries her photo camera with her, she snapped some photos of me. I thought I should share the photos she took on The Viennese Girl blog to show you how spring looks like in Vienna.

Which is the best time of the year for you? Which is the best season to visit Vienna? I have always wondered how spring is in Sydney, or in Tokyo, or in Singapore… Maybe because I have never been to those places, so I am just a little bit curious, as always! But soon I am going to discover how spring is in Munich.

Although I have shared many Vienna travel tips on The Viennese Girl blog, I still receive emails from people asking me what to do and where to go during their stay in Vienna. Recently, a friend of mine (pictured in the photos above) visited me for 2 days in Vienna. As it was her first visit to Vienna, before her arrival, I was thinking of how to make the best of those 2 days for her, so I wrote down a 2 day program. If you are in Vienna in December, here are my recommendations, according to the program my friend and I followed:

1st day:

We started the day with a breakfast at Cafe little Britain. Then we went to the city centre, and roamed around the streets during the daylight. I showed her the most central streets like Graben, Kohlmarkt and Kärntnerstrasse. Afterwards, I brought my friend to see the view of the city from the top of Stephansdom. After that we went to Beaulieu for a little snack and to warm up our body as it has been cold, very cold outside. That was probably the most beautiful part of the whole day, because of the very Christmassy atmosphere in Palais Ferstel, where this french bistro is situated, and I ordered my favourite baguette with salmon and a rose lemonade, as always. So the day couldn’t end here without paying a visit to a Christmas market at Spittelberg. After the Christmas market, we ended up at the bar of 25 hours Hotel sipping wine. We headed back home, but of course if you still have time and energy, you can visit the Christmas markets in Rathaus, Maria-Theresien-Platz, in Museumsquartier and in Karlsplatz or maybe some of them…

2nd day:

The day started with breakfast at Nascha’s. We simply loved it and we had to fill ourselves up with energy for the long day ahead us. After breakfast, I took my friend to Belvedere. Here, you have 3 options: visit the museum, visit the Christmas market and the gardens. We went back to the center on foot and head over to Sacher Hotel for a Sacher Torte. Then we had two options: either visiting Schönbrunn or going to a restaurant for Schnitzel. We opted for the second option, as it was cold outside and we preferred to stay indoors. My friend wanted to check out that famous Viennese dish, the schnitzel. Last stop of the day was at the bar of Sofitel for some cocktails.

I hope you got some nice ideas from this blog post…ah wait: don’t forget to visit Naschmarkt…♥

Not far away from where I live, there is a cafe called Kaffee von Sascha, which is run by an adorable couple from Ukraine. Kaffee von Sascha is not like the other cafes in Vienna. Sascha is passionate about making coffee for his guests while Nina makes the T-shirts that you will see hanging on the wall and they are both proud and happy to run a concept store that combines coffee & fashion.

Although I went there alone, I felt welcomed and comfortable. While I was chatting with both of them, I took these pictures to share with you on The Viennese Girl blog.

I left the Kaffee von Sascha with a T-shirt that portrays a cute dog and really can’t wait to wear it in my summer holidays in Greece. Don’t forget to visit them if you are in Vienna. I personally loved the table next to window and not only their coffee, but also their strawberry smoothie and all the other delicacies they treated me.

Renting a motor boat in the Danube is my favorite summer activity in Vienna and if there is also ice cream somewhere around me, then we are actually talking about a dreamy Sunday experience. This is how I personally like to spend my Sunday afternoon in Vienna (well, if I cannot be somewhere in the Greek islands🙂 ). With a good company and definitely not in the city center. And there are some houses right next to the Danube with a boat outside and it looks like a little Venice (with a certain dose of imagination of course 🙂 ). And little before the nightfall, we ended up strolling around Augarten (which reminds me of the parks in Paris) and later on, had dinner on a wonderful terrace at the Augarten restaurant overlooking the beautiful park.

What is the best way to spend Sunday afternoon for you? ♥

Himmelblau

There isn’t a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon rather than catching up with dear friends in a super cute cafe like Himmelblau, which means azure in English.

This was actually my second visit at the Café in Vienna. I remember the first time I visited it was back in summer, you can find my summery visit here.

This time I took some pictures outside in the Kutschkermarkt and later on I jumped into Himmelblau to warm up. Our coffee was served in azure cups. We made ourselves comfortable and uploaded some spontaneous photos of the three of us on Instagram.
