Today has been another hot and sunny day and we started by taking a trip to one of my favourite places, the train station to pick up our set of tickets. As usual, I managed to skip the queue and it went well without any problems. It was then time for Superbunny to experience the U-Bahn that would take us to the sightseeing bus tour that we were hoping to be accessible. We caught the bus from Karlsplatz and it took us around the old city for about an hour, it was magical and very informative as to the history of Vienna. Oh and the music was very enjoyable too as we travelled around the city, it really set the mood! The buses themselves are wheelchair accessible with fold down ramps and you are able to hop on and hop off at any given point so it’s a great way to explore the city.
After having lunch in the most fanciest Burger King that I’ve ever seen, we decided to visit the Vienna Operahouse. We were unsure about the accessibilty but after a short while we found the accessible enterance where we were greeted by Nelson who assisted us throughout the whole guided tour with the various lifts etc. The tour was very informative and most areas bar one were fully accessible. What I found interesting was that the Vienna Opera Theatre is sponsored by Lexus and Samsung and they had their own engraved pillars which contradicted the old architecture before it.
We then found our way back to the hotel and returned to the train station to collect more tickets for our journey in a few days time from Budapest to Katowice in Poland which went without a hitch again.
Tomorrow we travel to Budapest using the same train company that brought us to Vienna so hopefully everything should be fine, I’ve probably jinxed it again now! When we arrive to Budapest, we will catch the only accessible metro line to our hotel which should be interesting.
See you tomorrow 🙂
