Vienna – Day 3

Some of us decided to go to Grinzinger a place known for its Heuringers.  These are basically farm to table restaurants.  They can only serve what they grow and only new wine.  We got on the subway to the end of the line and then took a bus to Grinzinger, a town full of these restaurants.  It was quiet and it seemed it would be better to go in the evening.  However we were there and found a place that was open.  Of course we ordered new wine because that is what this area is noted for. We also ordered appetizers.  More and more people came in for lunch and we enjoyed everything we had.  The pictures show the partially eaten appetizers because I forgot to take a picture.  Too soon it was time to return to the hotel to collect our suitcases.  We had decided to take a boat from Vienna to Bratislava and it was only a short walk from our hotel.

The boat ride was great. Only an hour and 15 minutes long but with a totally different perspective from the train. The Danube is a working river and we saw all kinds of barges and river cruise ships.  We landed in Bratislava and had a trek over cobblestones to our hotel.
