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 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.

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.
When you are sightseeing in Vienna and not paying attention to the bicycle paths you might get hit by a passing bike
You should be very careful in Vienna around easter... the rabbits grow hard shells and wheels, it's really quite scary!
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. ;-)
You could get addicted to Vienna... On the picture is the lounge in the Kunsthistorsches Museum(Museum of the Art History).
Spittelau (fernwärme wien) This is 'just' a power plant but the design something really awesome! Nice that Vienna is investing a lot to district heating...
I swam across the Danube, but must say it was very cold and once on the other side, I wished I'd only went half way . . .
