what you don't want to see
as bright and taken care for many historical old buildings in the inner city in vienna are, you can find there many large unaesthetic on the computer constructed blocks like the meiselmarket building, which should represent a ship but is only a senseless amount of stones with the coronation of mac donald's signs shining like christmas decoration the whole year.
i will spare you a picture of it! ;-) you can find a lot of such buildings yourself if you open your eyes and go a little out of the centre with metro or bus or tramway.

Although I didn't go there, I have been warned about the Prater Amusement Park after dark. Apparently it attracts a lot of unsavory characters at night. Perhaps this has always been this case-If you've ever seen The Third Man you'll understand.

If you are in a hurry in the middle of Vienna and there are no cafes around, you can use public WC, but remember to carry some small coins with you, as you'll have to pay 0,50 euros per visit.

In the widest avenues you can find this red lanes for bycicles. The traffic lights have signs for pedestrians and for bikes.
When crossing this avenues, take care and look for cars and bikes.

Vienna is a relatively safe place to visit, and probably one of the safest cities in Europe. Just don't look like a tourist (with the camera around the neck and maps hanging out of your pocket, etc) and you will end up with all of the belongings (like your wallet) that you came with!!!

Traveling in Austria during the spring and summer season
can be a problem for allgergics - if you react to 'Pollen' ,
try out the site

Visiting the Wiener Prater may be a funny thing during the afternoon, there's much
to see, various attractions and people selling sweets (Zuckerwatte, glasierte Aepfel,
Krachmandeln etc) BUT it is no place for girls or children in the evening/night, always
go in groups, and if know some well built male to accompany you, the better.
It's absolutly safe here! No...
It's absolutly safe here! No dangers. You can drink the water from the water pipe (actually we have one of the best water of all), you can eat every food, nobody gonna kill you or rape you. So, if you wanna go for a walk in the middle of the night then GO! There is also no district where you shouldn't be. You can walk every where around.

A single night bus fare cost oS15.There is a fine for passangers who are caught without a valid ticket,and on board inspections carried out at various times.
For Austria: Don't throw trash from out of you car.You will get a ticket from the police. Very expensive!
Schonbrunn Palace, the Imperial summer residence,is a quaint little getaway of some 1,400 rooms.
Mozart played his first concert here at age six.
Vienna has Architectural Treasures wherever you look.

Craned Neck Disorder
Vienna causes you to have a craned neck as you stare at all the wonderful facades of the buildings. The elegant girl facade from a building on the Graben reminds me very much of a Mucha painting.

Don't wear black shoes when walking through Schoenbrunn Park. The ways are whiten with chalk and you will have white shoes when leaving the park.

If you buy too much stuff you may find it hard to carry it all home. The solving can be taking the shopping cart home. ;-)
