I flew to Vienna just before the Madagascar trip, arriving Wednesday evening, flying home early Sunday morning (April 10-14). The main reason was to take part in the opening event at the Vienna World museum for the first ever NEPAL ART NOW exhibition which will be running all summer there.
Here’s the link to the exhibition which is utterly worth your while: https://www.weltmuseumwien.at/en/exhibitions/nepal-art-now/
I stayed in a lovely AirBnB in the 7th district (with the collest “retro vibe”).
See photos below of the cool neighbourhood and in the last row pics of the the first big exhibit on contemporary art of Nepal at Weltmuseum Vienna (700 m2 of fabulous art)
On Thursday I roamed about, all over the center of town, first in and around Hofburg and later the 7th district, greatly enjoying myself (and happy that there was no rain!)
Friday turned out to be a wonderfully sunny (but cold) morning which I spent at Schönbrunn Castle, right outside of Vienna. I was surprised how easy - and quick - it was to get there.
But first I enjoyed a great breakfast in the Turkish neighborhood (see third row):
Thursday afternoon I was back in the city and saw many more interesting things:
On Saturday I had signed up via AirBnB for a vintage shopping tour and I went back to Weltmuseum for a talk&tour with renowned artist Ashmina Ranjit.
Bye bye, Vienna … the last evening: the bread machine across from my AirBnB, retro charm at the Filmhaus and dinner at DAS MÖBEL café
