Right inside the heart of Vienna’s inner city there’s a calm hidden spot, perfect for having a short break between two sightseeing checks on your Vienna-to-do list, just waiting for you. Despite its central position this place remains a peaceful one and I’d highly recommend you stop by to have an urban picnic or just to round up your Albertina visit with some moments of admiring the city panorama from the inside.
Also if you’re just about to end a classy evening in Vienna’s opera house this place represents a good destination for a short late night stroll, as when it’s dark already, you can see the opera building itself in its, in my opinion, most beautiful appearance: illuminated by dozens of dimmed lights.
The way to get there is also kind of interesting: instead of taking the elevator or escalator that leads you right up to the place itself you shouldn’t be too lazy to climb up the big steps leading to the museum. Changing from time to time, their design is dedicated to one of the exhibition’s artists, so maybe you’ll happen to walk upon one of many artists’ masterpieces such as Magritte, Kandinsky or Matisse. Right now you can hop on of the colourful boats of les Fauves, just try not to get soaked!
