So Much to See Vienna

I always like Vienna, but I can never stay long enough. There are too many museums to visit; too many palaces to see; too many stunning churches and thought-provoking historic sites, too much music to hear, too much good food to eat. How does one choose?

I arrived by train from Zurich, Switzerland, using a Eurailpass. Traveling by Eurail from country to country has always seemed to me to be the easiest, most pleasant way for a sightseer to go. 

The cherry trees were blooming pink along the Lake of Zurich as I set out. As the train climbed into the mountains, snow began to appear. First it was in patches near St. Anton, and then, at higher elevations, the birches were bowed under it. Having left Zurich in the late morning, I was in Vienna seven hours later. After enjoying a Wiener Schnitzel dinner and a good night’s sleep at the four-star, 144-room, Falkensteiner Hotel am Schottenfeld, I was eager to see the Vienna I had not yet seen, and, of course, old standbys I have seen and loved. It was about a 20-minute walk to the city center from my hotel.
