Days 1 & 2 — The trip to Vienna; the Votive Church, the St. Stephen's Cathedral

We left Innsbruck and traveled by train to spend six days in Vienna.

table outside Votive Church
This is a monument to the European Union.

The Votive Church was closed that day; we did get inside later during the trip.

But, in the meantime, we went into St. Stephen's Cathedral. Inside, colored panels hanging over the windows tinted the air.

St. Stephen's. They're cleaning the exterior; you can see the difference between the front, which is done, and the sides.

We then went over to St. Peter's Church.

St. Peter's Church
The exterior of St. Peter's. This picture was taken from just outside Sparky's, where we ate several times. It's an Austrian/Caribbean/American bar about 20 meters off the Stephansplatz.

Hotel room
Our room. Neither of us wants a Holiday Inn-type of experience while abroad. The Pension was clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and centrally located. The staff was polite, and breakfasts were included.

Next: Day 3 -- Upper Belvedere; the Leopold Museum; and the Kunsthistorischen Museum
