Austria-Hungary

Post #1 by PredsFan77 » Tue Nov 29, 2016 7:50 am

Hey so I am looking at going to Vienna/Bratislava/Budapest for 6 days. Where should I focus my time? Leaning towards 3 nights in Vienna including a half day in Bratislava then a night in Budapest before flying to Munich or Rome to head back home. Should I do it more 2/2 instead?

Yeah I need to burn up some time before the end of the year and flights are a little difficult to find places to go and this trip is one I have been wanting to do.

So Day 1 afternoon - day 3 evening Vienna and Bratislava
Day 3 night - Day 5 afternoon Budapest

I think it's manageable.

At the risk of hijacking the thread, how would you folks rank European cities to visit? Criteria can vary of course, but let's say in terms of food, arts, culture, nice architecture, etc.

Architecture, food, sights:

Paris (it unfortunately has many parisiens)
Berlin
London
Budapest
Prague

I'm excluding Istanbul from Europe otherwise I'd put it as 2nd. And I haven't been to Moscow or Rome but looking forward to it.

Many people dispute me placing London low. And those people are uncultured brutes.

I'm looking at you dog.

Too bad we lost so many travel threads when the crash happened. There was good info there.

I was thinking of going to London and Amsterdam this summer. Now I'm thinking maybe dropping by Budapest too.

Skip Bratislava. It is a quick one day jaunt from Vienna to buy cheap alcohol, etc. for locals, but nothing special. If anything, half a day.

It depends on what you want to do in Vienna. There are lots of museums to see and depending on how much you want to do there. Budapest is nice, and maybe it was just my time there, but a day or two at most is sufficient. It's a nice place to see the buildings and eat the food.

Things to do in Vienna (you can get from pretty much any tourist guide):
- Kunsthistorisches (Fine Arts) Museum and the Naturhistorisches (Natural History) Museum which are across from one another
- Schönbrunn (and less so the Zoo attached)
- walk around the Hofburg palace
- walk around Stephansdom
- Rathaus (has a Christmas market at this time of the year, and a skating rink where you can embarass locals with your ability to skate)
- Staatsoper (opera house) and see a show
- Belvedere palace (usually in spring/summer to see the gardens) if they have an interesting art show
- Hundertwasserhaus and/or the tower at Spitelau (an expressionist architect)
- I'm not sure if they still have the works of Gustav Klimt anywhere or if that old lady stole them back from the museums, but they are worth seeing in person.
- there are also some wineries up in the hills of Vienna (heurigen), but that is more of a summer thing.

was never a fan of berlin, but i agree with the banana's order on things otherwise. i'd substitute rome for berlin and then round out the list with vienna/munich after prague, but before budapest. barcelona is probably up on that list somewhere. madrid lower down. after madrid is probably amsterdam and brussels.

there are other lesser cities of interest that fill in and around these cities.

I'd have madrid before barcelona personally, also have paris before london (for a first time visit). Amsterdam before brussels. Never been to berlin. Rome is further down for me. Athens/greek islands is a cool trip too. Some of the smaller cities/towns are also quite worth it.

Thanks. Sounds like I'm in the ballpark then. Was just going to Bratislava to check Slovakia off the list. Was just going for a half day to the old town and back to Vienna.

For Vienna I was planning on hitting the art museum early one day, really impressed to see their large collection of Brueghel, and the palace later that day.

How is the coffee house experience?

I think it varies based on personal experience. I'll give you an underrated/overrated:

Underrated

Madrid
Brussels
Florence
Edinburgh
Dublin

Overrated

Paris
Rome
Amsterdam
Prague
Venice

About what you expect: German speaking countries

I always have difficulty comparing English speaking countries to non-English speaking just because the experience is so different.

But top 5 is probably

London
Madrid
Edinburgh
Dublin
Paris

Why do you guys rate brussels so highly? Found it to be a souless snoozefest with decent architecture. And I was there visiting uni friends as a student and went out/discovered the city a fair bit.

I really enjoyed the art museum there. And the Kunsthistorisches museum is a great place to go. It's big enough and has a lot to see, but not overwhelmingly big so that you feel rushed to see everything.

I'm not a coffee drinker, so I didn't do the coffee house thing as much as I could have. I did have a couple places that I liked to go regularly and had tea and ate pastries.

My favourite, if you are around Stephansdom is a place called Cafe Diglas (http://diglas.at/). If it's still good, I really enjoyed the chocolate-banana squares they had there. It was also good for people watching.

There are a bunch of others, but I'm no expert.

me too. i was visiting a friend between my time in vienna and frankfurt (i took a few weeks off to travel before starting the new job). brussels is nice to look at, and probably a nice place to live, but a little on the boring side.

if i had to do it again, i would just go and do a trapist beer tour.

It's like Paris architecturally without the asshole Parisians. Great food, great beer, and a few interesting things to do. A really nice long weekend trip.

Also left off Strasbourg as a really underrated place. The overlap of French/German culture is pretty unique. Plus the food and drink are outstanding. I still get cravings for tarte flambée

I was going to do a semester in Strasbourg back in the day. Then decided to do post grad abroad and pulled out of Strasbourg a few weeks before going to save the moolah for the post grad.

That would have been a fun life experience.

I liked Rome more than Paris, but importantly I did not go in peak season. I imagine the crowds would ruin the experience otherwise.

Better food and more interesting architecture.

Greg's nuts (on Rome having better food/architecture than Paris). Peak season is a good point re: Rome. It gets chaotic and loses a lot of its charm (same with Florence).

I've been to London too many times so I find it ordinary.

My top 5 major cities are:

Paris
Budapest
Prague
Rome
Athens

Other places that are great:
The Greek islands (Santorini, Milos, Crete, Rhodes)
Dubrovnik
All of Switzerland
Cinque Terre
Turkey
Belgium

I loved Florence, definitely underrated. I'd add Copenhagen and Lisbon to that list. I went to Denmark for new year's ages ago and it remains probably my favourite city ever.

Also, you guys are crazy with Edinburgh love. Glasgow is where it's at, just beware the knife wielding 11 year olds.
Edinburgh is the place to go if your in Scotland for a day or two, but if you go for a month or more, it needs to be Glasgow.

It should be noted, January is the absolute worst time to go to Copenhagen. Aside from the fireworks fun and the glug, it's a freaking cold and nobody goes outside so it's like a ghost town. Yet I still loved the city.

Scottish people?



Actually, my wife was doing some anthro research on post-industrial cities. I was unemployed at the time and figured, "why not?!?". We were there for 6 weeks. She lived in Glasgow for two years before we met, and her family is all from there, so it's not like we went in blind, lots of old friends there.

We did go to London for 3 days, bethnal green/brick lane area.

No, we were there just before the referendum... and Scotland was overwhelmingly for staying in the EU anyway.

It was anthro. She was looking at how people navigate in a post industrial, service focused, tourist driven landscape. Interesting stuff as tons of cities are dealing with trying to rebrand themselves as gentrifying creative class destinations. (Creative class being underemployed barristas who make shitty art and work 20 hours a week.) Truly a struggle for our generation.

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock. So long Holly.

And I did get hassled over my passport entering Austria this time. Might've been different trying to get back into Germany.

They're asking for visas for travellers from the Democratic People's Republic of Trump?
