Sunday on the Wiener Weinberge

We had three days in Vienna with very different weather. Saturday was grey and rainy, Sunday was filled with snow and wind, and Monday was fresh and sunny.

On Sunday we went to the Mountains not far from Vienna. It is only half an hour of public transport away. Mellie brought her sled and Fleur had her very first sled ride. In the mountains it was really a winter wonderland. So many people went there with their kids to play in the snow. The day really made me appreciate the mountains. Coming from Denmark it is not something I grew up with our ever experienced in my childhood, and it has been over 15 years since I was last in the snowy mountains and had a day like this.

When we arrived we took a walk up to something called Am Himmel. Here we had a cup of coffee with all the other people eating soup and warming up after being outside. Afterwards we took the sled for a spin and went back down to the bus stop. Here we had lunch in one of the cafées overlooking Vienna, that was beginning to be slightly visible after it stopped snowing.

It must be so nice to live in a big city and still have the mountains so close, that you can go whenever you feel like it.
