Last full day in Wien

The weather today fit the saying in London: ,,Don´t like the weather? Wait 5 minutes``. It changed constantly, ranging from cloudy and 16° to warm, sunny and 22°.

After breakfast at Café Prückel came a visit to the Zentralfriedhof (cemetery).

After that, I decided to go to the Alte Donau (old Danube) where our summer house was (has been out of the family now for over 10 years) and see what´s going on there (the new owners need to keep things a bit more tidy). Then back into the city center, visited the Secession briefly, enjoying a Mélange at the Theater Café across the street, and that was the day.

Jspira, So glad to hear that you are still enjoying your trips. When you get tired of all that traveling, just let me know so that I may fill in for you. Was your old summer home situated on that beautiful lake you have pictured? Here's to a continued good time!

Ja, the lake pictured is the Alte Donau (Old Danube), specifically the Untere (lower) Alte Donau. No houses are on the Alte Donau, but ours was right off the promenade/walkway that goes along the shoreline.

Indeed. But just to be clear, this is the OLD Danube, which is a lake or tributary, not the river.

Danke... the Old Danube is actually much nicer than looking than the Danube. It is great for swimming, boating, etc. whereas the Danube is really more commercial and not for recreation.

Other than the fact that there were no hotel rooms, it also didn´t fit into my schedule in terms of which city I needed to be in when (i.e. Vienna at END of trip for drop-off). I did beat the Mercedes McLaren team INTO Budapest as those trucks didn´t go past 80 km/h.
