Hi traveler, I am Ricky, an Italian traveler, for my second step of my long journey across Europe of Diary of Interrailer, I want to tell how I spent my three days on Wien between 6th to 8th of August 2017.
Day 2 to 4
Where to go?
Wien Central Station
How to move?
From Switzerland to Austria:
Where to sleep?
I slept and I spent my days my day in Wobats Hostel of Wien (The Place), one of major hostel chains of Europe.
Espacially in Wien there are two wombats hostels, but I chose the one far away from the city center and I took a lot of time to find it during a rainy day.
So I will give you the maps with the route if you’re interested to book a room there from the Wien Central Station to Wombats Hostel.
Anyway, I think these hostels are well-equipped with every kind of comfort, in this hostel where I was I had found a small pub as well and games room, so, for this reason, I like the life in a hostel.
My first day in Wien
Meanwhile, I was waiting for the ending of rain I spent my time to rest after a night without to sleep on board of overnight train.
In the evening I had dinner in a restaurant close to hostel, when you get out of the main entrance, turn o right and after the corner, turn again to right and you should find the resturant called “Der Hannes” where I ate this delicious Goulash of Wien, on suggestion of the barman of hostel.
Here you can find furthermore details on Der Hannes on TripAdvisor.

The second day in Wien
The day after my arrival in Wien, it was finally a sunny day, so I decided to join on walking-guide tour with other guests of hostel and this amazing local guide who was taken lent of a safari 😀
By the way, after a couple of hours with her, half of participants escaped bored and annoyed, and me too, I decided on a tour alone for the main attractions of the city.
Meanwhile, I was walking I found the majestic royal gardens, and they look like pretty lush and flower landscapes.
After the view of Royal Gardens, I had wandered for Wiener Staatsoper, the famous theater opened in 1869.
I remained outdoor, so I get lost so much of its history, but it is very beautiful outside as well.
I know is a place where there are museums where they are collected Imperial Treasury but I don’t have time to visit anything, due long queues and I prefer to wander for the city and enjoy good vibes of the day.
The third day in Wien
I don’t do so much, because that day I had an appointment with my ex-colleague of my office before leaving the city for another step of my Interrail trip.
So after my three days stop in Wien it is time to start again for the next destination: Prague!
See you at my next stop to Prague in Czech Republic my dear interrailer 😉
