Hi you! Yeah it’s me, long time no see 😉
Well I am back with a bunch of fresh energy and inspiration. As you have noticed I was pretty AFK lately and I have even had some weeks where I did not even post a photo on Instagram… Whoopsy daisy. Anyways, I’m back – hopefully for good now! I am having a lot of content ideas so let’s just do it! Kay?
Today I am going to start off with a long long blogpost about my trip to Vienna last month! It was a long weekend full of good food, laughter, amazing palaces, parks and more. Curious yet? Let me show and tell you about my three days in Vienna! 🙂
I am now also on youtube! Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel 🙂
On Thursday afternoon me and babe Marieke boarded a Transavia plane from Rotterdam-The Hague airport (former Zestienhoven) to Vienna. I was a bit nervous and it was all a little bit with a double sided feeling as originally I was going to spend my time in Vienna with my mom. Unfortunately life is what happens while you are busy making other plans, but mom and me will now visit Lisbon very soon 🙂
Okay got a little bit sidetracked there. So on Thursday evening we landed in Vienna and took an Uber to our hotel. Tired as we were from our flight we just decided to stay in, get comfortable in our hotel and take a peek into the welcome package we got from the Vienna tourist office!
Waking up after a good nights sleep we enjoyed a delicious breakfast with homemade waffels, cakes and more sweet stuff. As soon as we were ready to go we walked to the metro and took the metro towards Vienna’s city centre. Having no clue were to get out exactly we figured that the Stadtpark stop would be pretty close to the actual stadt 😉
As soon as we stepped out of the metro we slowly started falling in love with Vienna’s beauty. The Stadtpark was beautiful – and we only saw a tiny bit of the total park! 😉
By the way, the whole weekend we used the Vienna city card which gives you unlimited acces to the public transport system of the Wiener Linen and a discount at a lot of sights and more.
After we took our first 50 or so pictures in Vienna we walked towards the city centre were we first walked a bit through the shopping streets before visiting the Stephansdom and climbing the 343 steps of the highest tower.
With shaky legs from the climb – the view was absolutely worth it – and a little more walking through the city centre we decided it was time to treat ourselves with some cake at Cafe Sacher! 🙂
Time for Sacher torte!
With filled up bellies we did some more exploring and decided to not take the touristic Ringstrasse tram but DIY-ed the same route with normal trams. Afterwards we sort of got hungry again so we went to the Palmenhaus restaurant next to the mesmerising Schmetterlinghaus!
To finish our first day we decided to go to the Prater funfair where they have a huge old school Riesenrad (Ferriswheel) from which you get an amazing view over the city.
On the second day we visited the magical Schloss Schönbrunn <3 I’ll show you a couple of my favorite pictures here but I’ll tell you more about Schönbrunn in another blogpost!

A little sneak peek into the Schönbrunn palace.
We also visit the Karlsplatz with the beautiful Karlskirche and the Le Loft skybar at the Sofitel hotel, where we had drinks and the best view over the city!
Our last day already but we had some fun last minute plans! On Saturday evening we had decided that we just had to see a show from the Spanische Hofreitschule, and so we did! After our last delicious breakfast, we headed towards the city where we walked to the Hofburg and the Hofreitschule.
Did you know that the Spanish Riding School in Vienna is the oldest known riding school in the world? It exists since 1565!
Inside the Spanish Riding School
After we saw the show we had Italian for lunch, such a shame we did not even eat a real Wienerschnitzel… A reason to definitely go back! 😉 And we ended our trip with a visit to the Belvedere museum. Where I will tell you more about later, but I’ll show you a little sneak peek before!
I’ll tell you more about my three days in Vienna and especially Schönbrunn and the Belvedere in my upcoming blogpost where I’ll share 5 (or more) reasons why you should visit Vienna!
Vienna stole my heart and I can’t wait to go back with my mom next year <3
Have you ever been to Vienna?
