It’s that time of the year again; the transition from summer to winter started as expected. Our summer here in Austria was more than strange but it seems like autumn will be as usual; a bit chilly with fresh air, clear sky and a sea of colourful trees. Yes, autumn really has arrived … and I’d like to share two of my favorite autumn spots/activities in (and around) Vienna:
Lainzer Tiergarten & Hermesvilla: The Lainzer Tiergarten used to be a hunting ground for the Habsburger. Today it’s a famous and well visited place for delightful excursions. What’s really lovely about this place is that your trip can either be topped with a yummy lunch/coffee at the café or a visit to the museum in the Hermesvilla (or both of course). Emperor Franz Josef I gave this chalet to his wife Empress Elisabeth (better known as “Sisi”) because she was a huge nature fan and wanted a place for her own. Not bad huh?
A walk in the Viennese Woods: I’m also a big nature fan and since I’m lucky (to also have a huge chalet … haha) to live near the Viennese Woods, a walk through this colorful setting is one of my favourite autumn activities.
