Breakfast and we set out to discover the fascinating history of the city. First stop the stunning Vienna State Opera. It is one of the most famous and oldest operas in the world. His orchestra consists of members of the Vienna Philharmonic, considered one of the best in the world. Built in 1869, by the architects August Sicard von Sicardsburg and Eduard van der Nüll in a neo-Renaissance style, it was Vienna’s first opera house. While in the early years it was not particularly popular with the city’s public, today it is one of the most active opera houses, with 50-60 companies giving over 200 performances a year. We continue our walk along the famous pedestrian street of Kärntnerstraße, with its luxury shops, cafes and about halfway down the street we will come across the famous Hotel Sacher, founded by the son of Franz Sacher, who is said to have created the famous Sachertorte in 1832. In front of us is Stephansplatz with the Cathedral of St. Stefanou. We continue with the always impressive and busy Graben pedestrian street with luxury shops, cafes and patisseries. About the middle stands out the Plague Pillar, which shows an angel and a saint overseeing the extermination of a witch who symbolizes the plague. The impressive complex was built after a deadly plague epidemic in 1679. Right and left, streets lead to hotels, cafes, shops, etc. Bogner is also impressive with branded storefronts (Louis Vuitton, Prada, YSL, etc.) and Kohlmarkt (Armani, Gucci, Tiffany & Co, Dolce & Gabbana, etc.) which ends at Michaelerplatz. Free time for shopping and Viennese coffee!!! At noon we will all have lunch together at the most famous restaurant in Vienna, Figlmüller, to enjoy the authentic Viennese schnitzel and in fact in a very filling portion!
