Five Things I Dreamed about Vienna

Vienna, known as the City of Dreams, for there was born the world's leading psychologists who likes to analyze dreams, Sigmund Freud.

So, here I will try to 'describe my own dreams', of Vienna. :)

credit: flickr

1. Leisures at green areas.

There is hardly another city in the world where you will find more green areas than in Vienna. There are so many city parks in Vienna. The Stadtpark, the Burggarten, the Volksgarten (part of the Hofburg), the Schlosspark at Schloss Belvedere (home to the Vienna Botanic Gardens), the Donaupark, the Schönbrunner Schlosspark, the Prater, the Augarten, the Rathauspark, the Lainzer Tiergarten, the Dehnepark, the Resselpark, the Votivpark, the Kurpark Oberlaa, the Auer-Welsbach-Park and the Türkenschanzpark.

My dreamed is just sitting around on one of those parks, reading a book, or listening to musics, while having some fresh air. We have not much city parks here in Indonesia. But we do have jungles. But, we won't 'sitting around reading a book' in jungles, right?!

2. Cycling around the city.

As we all know, the city of Vienna prides itself for being particularly bicycle-friendly. I will choose this recommended route:
Tulln to Klosterneuburg: Take you bike on the train from Vienna to Tulln; there, do some sightseeing in this nice little town and start your tour along the Danube. Some 20 kilometres further down, you arrive Klosterneuburg, yet another pretty place. Here I recommend to stop by for a Heurigen wine tavern and do the final 5ish kilometres to Vienna by bike or catch a train that takes you back.

3. Music and dance.

As music is one of Vienna's legacies, for that I dreamed to be able to enjoy as many works of legendary musicians there. Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, and a lot more. Not to mention the opera and the balls. I dreamed to be able to witness the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra someday, and visiting one or two balls at nights.

(Want some Philharmonic Orchestra, click here: New Year's Concert 2012)

4. Luxury chocolate cakes.

It's called Sachertorte. World's most delicious chocolate cake. Or that's what they say. :(

(for you who loves cake-making, this is a great book: Austrian Desserts and Pastries: 108 Classic Recipes)

5. Cheap flights to Vienna.

Since Vienna has this rank as the best living standard in the world, of course i dreamed to exactly live at Vienna.

There are 99 cities which flights to Indonesia, and one of them is Vienna. They have cheap flights from Vienna to Indonesia, but i haven't find any cheap flights from Indonesia to Vienna. :(
