Wien, Wien, nur du allein

Wien, Wien, nur du allein
Sollst stets die Stadt meiner Träume sein!
Dort, wo die alten Häuser stehn,
Dort, wo die lieblichen Mädchen gehn!
Wien, Wien, nur du allein
Sollst stets die Stadt meiner Träume sein!
Dort, wo ich glücklich und selig bin,
Ist Wien, ist Wien, mein Wien!

On a whim I have decided to go to Vienna for a week during my three week vacation. I found a good apartment through airbnb.com and I cannot wait to start my journey!

Instead of taking a plane (with all the hassle that brings), I will book a train ride from home to Vienna. Almost 12 hours of train travel, but without the stress that flying brings me.

My itinerary can be easily found using the various national train sites, and I have transferred it to a google map:

Train trip to Vienna > 1000 km | 12 hrs

Train trip to Vienna > 1000 km | 12 hrs

My exact plans in Vienna are not set in stone, as I expect the city will tell me what to visit and see.

For now my reading list contains the following titles:
