Early morning start, my last full day in Vienna. I was planning to catch a performance of the Original Hoch- und Deutschmeister band at 10:45 on the corner of Kohlmarkt and Graben. Unfortunately, due to the weather (it was once again raining!), their performance was cancelled. I guess another lazy breakfast was in order, this time at Café Korb. And as the weather did not improve, I made my way over to Karlsplatz for a visit to the Wien Museum where they had a great exhibit: The Metropolis Experiment - Vienna and the 1873 World Exhibition.
After 5 days in the city, I guess I was all "looked out": I had seen so many great and wonderful things, I found that I was simply tired. One last (long) ride on tram #1, a rainy walk through the Prater forest and some final photos of the Riesenrad: this city is great, but it was time to say goodbye.
Another stop at a good café, right next door to my appartment, and I was done.
