Vienna: Day 3

Our last day in Vienna was constrained by a 16:30 departure time. After some deliberation over how to spend our last 5/ 6 hours in Vienna, we eventually decided to make our way to the city centre for the last time on our trip.

We caught the U-Bahn to Volkstheater, the station right next to the museum quarter. It took us a little too long to finally make our way round to the front of the Natural History Museum (Some silly chains prevented us from passing nicely around the side of the building).

We again enjoyed free admittance to the museum in which we spent the next couple of hours wandering around. I particularly enjoyed their exhibit on the Rosetta Space Probe mission, especially the scaled down model of the comet that it landed on. However, the rest of the museum was almost as enjoyable, though I did find their collection of snakes just a bit unsettling.

After wandering around the museum, we made our way back to Ulrich’s for lunch (Rather uninspired, I know, but when the food is as good as it was it was rather hard to resist). Again, no photos but I enjoyed my pulled beef burger, though it was incredibly rich in flavour.

We then headed back to the hostel, picked up our bags and made our way across town to the bus station. We definitely weren’t up for missing our bus again and thankfully we boarded it this time. I’ve never been so pleased to see the inside of a bus in my entire life.

To top it all off, we were able to enjoy panoramic views of the Austrian and Slovenian countryside in the evening light, a sight to behold, I can assure you. If you have any thoughts or questions please feel free to leave them in the comments!
