Asalle in Austria & Germany, Pt. 6

Asalle in Austria and GermanyPart 6 – A Trip to Vienna

In my next letter, I will tell you more about the Deutscharbeitsmappe (German Work Book) I am using, courtesy of the Österreicher Integrations Fonds (Austrian Integration Fund). But before I sign off, I must tell you about last weekend’s trip to the capital of Österreich.

Wien is truly one of the most beautiful cities I have seen! I wanted most to go to the Spanische Hofreitschule, and I was lucky enough to take a tour and catch a performance of the magnificent Lipanzzer stallions and their dedicated riders, who carry on a 430 year-old tradition. I also visited two of Wien’s many palaces, Schloß Schönbrunn and Schloß Belvedere. On Saturday evening, a friend and I bought student tickets for a ballet, Coppélia, shown at the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera House), for €10 each—and we had our own box! Standing tickets were €3 and €4 each! Needless to say, Wien drips with culture and it is accessible to everyone.

I promise to write again soon, and in the meantime please let me know how things are at home!

Alles Gute,

A.
