Walking through Vienna – and its bookshops!

I haven’t had the time to write a proper entry since I’ve been away for the past week! Me and my parents went hiking in Tyrol and now me and my dad are spending the next two weeks at my grandma’s house in Vienna: and today was our first full day full of adventures!

Lunch at Café Landtmann

We ran a bit late, so instead of getting breakfast, we ate some traditional Wiener Schnitzel mit Petersilienerdäpfeln und Preiselbeeren (which are potatoes and a special jam that comes with Schnitzel)!

If you ever visit Vienna, go visit this traditional Kaffeehaus where you can eat the traditional meals such as Kaiserschmarren and Marillenknödel! Moreover, they have the best cakes/strudels for dessert or if going for brunch!

Bookstore Frick

Right in the heart of Vienna and only seconds away from the Stefansdom, or Steffel how the Austrians call it, this old bookstore has everything you can dream of: English, Spanish, French, Polish and of course German literature with a variety of Austrian specials!

I bought two books: firstly, because it’s a tragedy I can’t take any longer, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone because I don’t own the English copy, and then The Rivers of London which is a fantasy/crime series I am absolutely thrilled to finally read! I’ve read the first few pages and the writing is awesome, funny and smart, the story promising and the protagonist interesting!

The Albertina – from Monet to Picasso

We visited the permanent exhibition where all the famous painters (mainly Austrian, German and French) from Monet to Picasso, so recent art can be found and I loved it!

That’s it – I hope you enjoyed this different post and be sure to visit the spots if you ever visit Vienna! Happy reading!

I'm a huge fan of Draco Malfoy, I love scones and tea time, I don't like horror movies and obviously I'm a huge book nerd.

    1. Oh no, I’m so sorry!!! I was able to travel only because I live in Europe 😦 I still hope you’ll have an awesome summer and maybe you’ll be able to visit France next year (hopefully!)
      Happy reading!

      1. Thanks! it was a student exchange program since I’m learning French at school; the program director said she’d keep everyone’s application for next year though so that’s good. If worst comes to worst, I’ll have to wait until summer of 2022 when coronavirus should be over. It’s just super annoying
