Inner City Tour to Vienna’s Heart
It was our language assistant Malia’s last day at our school, so we planned a tour in the first district. Our goals were Herrengasse, the Opera, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the National Library and many more, where we gave Malia some information about these famous Viennese sights. We told her something about the sights in English because she is an American student, who only understands English and a few words German.
First we took the tram to Schottentor, where our first sight was. It was Herrengasse and our classmates Aris and Tiffany told us something about the different palaces and the Freyung square. After this our teacher Ms Dallinger told us something about the Café Central.
Then we went to the Sissi Museum, where our classmates Kübra and Andrea told us about Swiss soldiers. Then we walked to the National Library and near by the Museum of Fine Arts to the Opera. We went through Kärntner Straße to a church which is the oldest in Vienna. After we had heard a short speech about the church, we went to the most famous sight in Vienna: St. Stephen’s Cathedral. In front of this holy cathedral Domi and Conny held their speech and after this interesting speech about architecture and the history of the dome, we went to an ice-cream parlour at Hoher Markt. An Italian family runs this parlour, which has already won many prizes only for the delicious ice-cream.
