I have twin daughters of 27, Juliet and Natalie. Back in 2005, I took Natalie to Berlin just before she sat public exams in German - a rather nostalgic visit for me, since I spent a month in Berlin in 1965 when I was 15.

What one does for one twin must, of course, be done for the other. Juliet and I had always agreed that we would visit Vienna, but the question was when. As it happens, it only took 12 years (!) for us to arrange things - she’s getting married next March, so I thought I must make good on my promise before then.

As a result, we travelled to Vienna last weekend. Happily, this also coincided with the opening of Vienna’s traditional Christmas Markets. To a considerable degree, these Christmas Markets are just a really great excuse to eat a lot and to drink loads of Gluhwein - warm red spiced wine which is a wolf in sheep’s clothing to judge by the hangover I woke up with the next morning!

Vienna also gave us the opportunity to meet up with one of the faithful band of Paneristi, Christian Bauer who, in typical Paneristi spirit looked after us brilliantly. We were also delighted to meet Christian’s wife, Silvia. Christian and Silvia, thank you very much!



Hoping I can get Imgur to work for me, here are some more pics - Vienna is a city of magnificent buildings and a great place to walk. Saturday saw me walk 17,000 paces, compared with my usual daily average of about 2,000. Slob? Moi?

Sampling the Gluhwein


Vienna Town Hall by night





Christian with his 372, me with my 162



Christmas Market




Supper. What else do you eat in Vienna if not Wienerschnitzel?



And guess what? We found Wagner, a local AD




St. Stephen's Cathedral



Walking around the city. The Town Hall by day




The Parliament building



Other impressive architecture



Saturday lunch, Schnitzel Cordon Bleu and Spaetzle



Saturday afternoon, Christian met up with us again (this time sporting a 233 Dot Dial) and we visited the Hundertwasser house, a most peculiar building designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a bit reminiscent of Gaudi in Barcelona



Saturday evening saw us at the opera - The Magic Flute at the Volksoper, then Sunday lunch at Figlmuller, the place for schnitzel. Have to confess this one beat me...




And that's just about it. Thanks again to you, Christian - we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you.

If you've got this far, thanks for sticking with me!

What one does for one twin must, of course, be done for the other. Juliet and I had always agreed that we would visit Vienna, but the question was when. As it happens, it only took 12 years (!) for us to arrange things - she’s getting married next March, so I thought I must make good on my promise before then.

As a result, we travelled to Vienna last weekend. Happily, this also coincided with the opening of Vienna’s traditional Christmas Markets. To a considerable degree, these Christmas Markets are just a really great excuse to eat a lot and to drink loads of Gluhwein - warm red spiced wine which is a wolf in sheep’s clothing to judge by the hangover I woke up with the next morning!

Vienna also gave us the opportunity to meet up with one of the faithful band of Paneristi, Christian Bauer who, in typical Paneristi spirit looked after us brilliantly. We were also delighted to meet Christian’s wife, Silvia. Christian and Silvia, thank you very much!



Hoping I can get Imgur to work for me, here are some more pics - Vienna is a city of magnificent buildings and a great place to walk. Saturday saw me walk 17,000 paces, compared with my usual daily average of about 2,000. Slob? Moi?

Sampling the Gluhwein


Vienna Town Hall by night





Christian with his 372, me with my 162



Christmas Market




Supper. What else do you eat in Vienna if not Wienerschnitzel?



And guess what? We found Wagner, a local AD




St. Stephen's Cathedral



Walking around the city. The Town Hall by day




The Parliament building



Other impressive architecture



Saturday lunch, Schnitzel Cordon Bleu and Spaetzle



Saturday afternoon, Christian met up with us again (this time sporting a 233 Dot Dial) and we visited the Hundertwasser house, a most peculiar building designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, a bit reminiscent of Gaudi in Barcelona



Saturday evening saw us at the opera - The Magic Flute at the Volksoper, then Sunday lunch at Figlmuller, the place for schnitzel. Have to confess this one beat me...




And that's just about it. Thanks again to you, Christian - we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you.

If you've got this far, thanks for sticking with me!










Looks like you had a great trip. I found Vienna to be a very interestimg city.

I have twin daughters of 27, Juliet and Natalie. Back in 2005, I took Natalie to Berlin just before she sat public exams in German - a rather nostalgic visit for me, since I spent a month in Berlin in 1965 when I was 15.

....and I did warn you that the schnitzels in Figlmuller's were big!

How was the opera? One of the things I want to tick off my bucket list is seeing an opera there, if not actually conducting one there?!

Hope to meet up again soon in London, Simon?
