I'm going to Vienna in November - and will definitely have to check out the Habsburg places within short traveling distance. (Only a quick weekend... sadly)

When I'm approaching a water jump, with dozens of photographers waiting for me to fall in, and hundreds of spectators wondering what's going to happen next, the horse is just about the only one who doesn't know I am Royal!

Besides the palaces try the coffee houses, Demels, Kaffee alt Wien, Cafe Landtmann, and Sluka.  Hotel Sacher offers the famous Sacher torte, mit schlag.

In Vienna the Spanish Riding School, the Schatzkammer in the Hofburg, and Kaisergruft (the royal graves) are all worth seeing.

Lainzer Tiergarten

The Hermesvilla, built for Kaiserin Elisabeth, who didn´t liked it, but I do, because of the Jugendstil and Klimt

And of course the Oper!!!!





Tickets can be difficult to get at times, but it is well worth the effort to attend.  BTW, standing room is so civilized too.  One waits online for these tickets
to go on sale  on the day of the performance, and it is easy to get into conversations with others waiting.  In fact if you need to leave to grab a bit to eat people will hold your place on line.  Once you get into the standing room area (directly below the Royal box) there are rails to lean on and you hold your spot by tying  a scarf.  Very civilized, at least it was a while back.

And this is the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth and 100th anniversary of his death.  As director of the Vienna Opera, his name is indelible with the Opera legacy.
