What to do on a Monday in Vienna

Mondays are often difficult for a traveller or tourist as usually art galleries and museums are closed. But in what Vienna is concerned, there are plenty of things you can do in the first day of the week. Here’s how to make the best of a Monday in Vienna.

Have fun in Prater

Prater, Vienna is indeed the park where you can spend hours and hours having fun! I have shared with you some tips regarding Prater and I also told you that the giant ferris wheel in this amusement park is a NOT to miss experience!

Shopping

Yes, Vienna has a lot to offer from this point of view. A whole street with many shops from various brands waits for you. I’m talking about Mariahilferstrasse, a place you shouldn’t miss when in Vienna, especially during sales period! I admit that one of my holidays here was during such a sale time, so yes, I dedicated some hours to shopping on Monday, even if I am not the shopping traveler type. But I did find some really beautiful clothes at some stores that weren’t present, at that time, in Romania, my country. I’m recommending this to you! Vienna also has some malls – so you have a lot of places to choose from!

Visit the famous churches

I am truly recommending them to you. Vienna has many lovely churches that are discovered with interest by people from all over the world, regardless of their religion.

My top three churches are Karlskirche, Saint Stephan’s Cathedral (Stephansdom) and Peterskirche.

Ankeruhr (Anchor Clock) – the public clock with human figures

In Vienna there is a clock that marks each hour with a special figure from history. At noon you can see all the figures for all the hours;) Yes, it is only at noon when that happens, so make sure you make your schedule to include it.

Near this clock you’ll find Jungferngasse – the street so short it has neither door nor number, a place I’m also recommending it to you.

City tour by carriage/bus

If you don’t have too much time in Vienna and you like tours, make sure you book one for the day. I would recommend you a long one with a carriage, but you can also choose from a wide variety of bus tours.

At sunset, during summer, be at the colourful fountain

Vienna has a beautiful colourful fountain and the light show begins at sunset. I’ve presented you the fountain here – and yes, it is indeed lovely to stay on a bench, with a breeze blowing your hair and watching the light show.

Travel tip: Make sure you get there while there is still some light available, so that you could take a look at The Red (Soviet) Army memorial „Heldendenkmal der Roten Armee”. It is worth it 😉

End the evening in Danube Tower

Enjoy a well deserved dinner in the restaurant in the Donauturm – it takes about an hour for a complete tour of the city from the tower’s height 🙂 If you already had dinner, then you can simply enjoy Vienna by night. Find out from this article more about the Danube Tower in Vienna and tips. Oh, be sure to be at the tower at the latest 10PM in order to have time to go up and have the dinner – the tower closes at midnight. If you only want to admire the view, then beware that the last group goes up at 10.30 PM.

Of course, you can also choose to go to the movies – if you understand German, as all movies are dubbed.

You can also enjoy a walk in some of Vienna’s parks and also on the Danube island.

Austria’s capital has, as you can see, plenty of activities for anyone who is Monday in this city. What did you choose or would you choose for a Monday in Vienna?

    I’ve only been once to Vienna and it looks like I missed out on some great highlights. I definitely have to go again one day.

    On Sunday afternoon, February 26, Krickstein accepted the courts against Carlos Moya, 1998 French Open champion plus a person in Spain’s 2004 winning Davis Cup team, topped the South African Airways rankings on the ATP Champions Tour this season. Outcomes of the match were 64, 64 with Moya defeating Krickstein and selling it to end up being the first player to say a place within the finals

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
