tichy in vienna

If I want to be honest to you, I would say that the 10th district is the only district in Vienna that I don’t like to visit. But when the discussion comes to “where do we find the best Eismarillen knödel in the city” we take the metro and we get off at the last station “Reumanplatz” in the 10th district. There you will find Tichy.

The ice cream shop is “hilarious”. A little bit old, the waitresses wear pink uniforms and they run here and there to serve the customers. It is crowded especially when the weather is sunny, and the Eismarillen Knödel works its way into my heart!

The waitress asks me in German: How many of them would you like to have?
The answer is three. Three Eismarillen Knödel a day, keep the doctor away!

I never thought that The Viennese Girl blog would reach out such a prestigious news organisation like BBC NEWS, not even in my wildest dreams. My friend from London, Helen Soteriou, who works as a business reporter for BBC news wrote a very interesting article about Sacher Torte. I am very excited and feel honoured being a small part of it. Thank you Helen, I am looking forward to meeting you soon in Vienna.

Whenever I go for a stroll in a Viennese garden and, to be more specific, to Schoenbrunn gardens, I have a neighbor who keeps telling me, “stop doing all the touristic things, you have been living in Vienna for three years and there are many other things to discover and places to go.” So, according to my friend, visitors of Schoenbrunn are mostly tourists and I guess locals who live close by. Schoenbrunn palace to Vienna is like Versailles to Paris: the most popular sight in Vienna. It’s huge, magical, and ideal for taking some pictures with my friend Elena.

If you are curious to see how does this place look like in the winter, have a look here!

As you know, the Viennese girl goes everywhere and spies on everything. I have visited this bar many times, during the day but in the night as well and I think that this blog should include a post about this unique place.

Some impressions:

The lift that brings you to the 18th floor is like a dark and black box with a white ceiling, some people are scared, and some are impressed.

I guess the highlight of the roof bar is the colorful ceiling. You have to see it from outside in the night. It something that catches your eyes and makes you wonder: “what is that?”

Βe careful on Saturdays night, because you will probably need a reservation. They will not let you enter in, if the place is full.

One thing that is very disappointing is that they only allow you to sit next to the window only if you go there to eat. Dear Le Loft manager, can you do something to change this? Thank you in advance.

Public transportation in Vienna

Public transportation in Vienna

Studying at the University of Vienna is nice, working in Vienna is nice as well, but having a chat with a nice girl on a sunny careless Sunday is more than amazing. Simple things in life are the best. We should always appreciate them and not take them for granted. Elena and I went for a coffee and then to Schönbrunn palace. You might have already seen some photos that we snapped together on my account on Instagram.

The photo of this post, gives me the chance to write a bit about how much I like the public transportation in Vienna. Having lived in the capital city of Greece for years and after experiencing limited public transportation in a very big city, I can say that the public transportation in Vienna turns the city into a playground. Having a car is useless. Public transportation here is fast, convenient, and punctual. I never had any kind of difficulty getting around Vienna. It is obvious that people who work for it do their best for the others. I shouldn’t forget to mention that the metro runs around the clock on Fridays and Saturdays and on the eve of public holidays, which makes going out at night easier.

My favorite metro stations? Schönbrunn station and the Stadtpark station, they look actually similar. The Stadtpark station was the first metro station that I saw when I came to Vienna, so I guess I have a special emotional connection to this station. I still remember that day, when I got off, and didn’t know which direction to take.♥
