The most memorable experience in Austria was seeing and getting (slightly) involved in the immigrant journey, which I’ll write about in a separate post.
Other things I did while there included riding public transit, as I tend to do.
You quickly realize how tourist attractions often aren’t unique to one city. The Badeschiff of Vienna literally has the same name as the one in Berlin; it’s a floating pool in a river you otherwise wouldn’t want to bathe in.
I was very impressed with the Viennese opera, not for any of their performances, but their accessibility. While the best tickets cost upwards of $200, they have day-of standing room tickets for $5, as well as an outdoor screen with loudspeakers so you can watch for free from just outside the venue. Economists might call this price discrimination, but I’d say it’s a great way to give everyone a chance to watch and listen.
