The Danube and More in Vienna
Hundertwasserhaus is an apartment building based on the idea and concept of Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser co- developed by architect Joseph Krawina. It has a lot of colorful pillars and colorful patchwork of walls. The unconventional and controversial design has attracted a lot of tourists. We also visited the shopping arcade across which was intentionally built to relieve the tenants from the bulk of visitors they receive everyday.

|Best mode of transportation to explore the city|
|We went to this hill overlooking a wide expanse of vineyard. Wow, Beer in the morning!|

There are some evening cruises available too as you enjoy waltzing after dinner. Or fancy a day cruise exploring the inner canals heading up to the divided river by man made Danube Island or Donauinsel which offers various activities such as picnicking, cycling, water sports. May it be a short tour or a day trip to Germany and the Black Sea, there are many cruise liners to choose from.

It was our last day in Vienna before we all took our flight the next morning to the majestic alps of Innsbruck.
Have a gorgeous Saturday!
