Städtetrip Wien | WDR Reisen
And hey presto – in the midst of pomp and splendor. And you have never been to Vienna, Uwe? I have never been to Vienna. Can you believe that? In this great, liveable city! But you already think of a few clichés, right? Wiener Schnitzel, Prater, Viennese Waltz … .. and Sisi, and coffee, and Sachertorte and great buildings, and Hofburg, and … hah, marvelous. We discover that now, we two. And special stuff, for example, these little traffic light guys there. Let’s see what they look like when it turns green now. Oh, look here, the classic, a Fiaker. But: 50 euros for 20 minutes. Therefore … Our concept is yes: two for 300, that is The two of us are out and about in the city for two days and 300 Euro We have to think carefully about where to invest the money. I would say, we give the classic now, we look for other things, right? Man, you do not always get everything on a picture. Good Morning! And further! Uwe look, our Vienna motto. Great, with blue sky and gold. Good morning, why are called the Paradeiser, the tomatoes? Paradeiser, because they come from paradise, right? What’s this? No idea, any giant root … Manioc! That’s right, there it is. All these delicious particles. They call the Naschmarkt “belly of Vienna”. Mine is already growling! There is the “Neni”, there we wanted to go now. Israeli Café, totally hip in Vienna. Looks great. Oriental breakfast … Good Morning! But you are not Neni, right? Neni are the four letters of my sons, I am the Haya. So, what’s a hit here is the Shakshuka, it’s warm. It warms and satiates, it is pleasant, a bit spicy, I love it! Well, then we do that, and once. Thank you very much! That was exactly the right choice. That’s so nice when you realize that we have chosen well now. These are the sons, right? There are my sons, yes. I would like to invite you to see how I make Shakshuka. Uwe, you come too. This is this oriental cuisine with hummus and beans, Shakshuka we have finished, I bring it out to you. Now we need the pita bread, and then it will be spooned out. Shakshuka. Have fun. Totally my thing. Camera down. The hammer here are always these insanely high ceilings. There, look. That’s a bit like in Berlin. Prater within sight and now a very special hotel for us. Hello. Can we check in? What’s your name? Tamina Kallert. And Uwe Irnsinger. Her room is room 102, first floor, and breakfast is at seven o’clock, until eleven o’clock, over there. And what exactly is the idea behind this house here? People who have no experience can also work here. That is, these are all people who came from other countries? Former refugees are? They work here now? Exactly. Exciting! Okay, see you later! It could be that these are the people who do this. The exciting moment … The entrance schonmal very spacious. Light. Big room. Look – crochet look. Take a quick look on the balcony … Oh look, that’s very nice. Everyone runs to St. Stephen’s Cathedral – we run into the Karlskirche. Hello. What do you have to pay for here? Lift, church, museum, all together. Church, museum, and lift? Yes, the lift goes up to the frescoes and you can look out the window at the top. Lift to the frescoes … eight euros? But we
wanted to see that now. Is a lot, but now we are here. Yes. And our budget is still pretty fresh, we still have. We have to take a look at the costs. So, two people. Impressive, right? Yes, and up close, you can see how it is painted. And how that shines, these golden … It’s … unusual. You can go further, look, up there! Screaming is uncool. Human. The highest point. The city at your feet. Look here, there is St. Stephen’s Cathedral. There’s the competition. That’s this … Wait a minute … Ice cold, that comes from the high mountains directly to Vienna. Since they are all very proud of it. That’s why we’ll have no costs for water. Then let it taste you. Here comes down such a cooling beauty fog. In the middle. Everything is so well concentrated in Vienna. What are they doing in there? They cook. Let’s have a look? Are you coming with me? Hello! You have a deadly timing. What is being brewed here? What does it look like? Why the disc? That’s like being in the zoo. This is called in Austria “spit protection”. We produce food, we do
now just sugar. Sweets. Exactly. You are in a candy factory. One would like to get in touch with it now. Come over. Once inside. Can you even grasp how that feels? Oha. Oh. Shit, how did that happen? Why do not you have that with you, but with me already? Because we are craftsmen and know what we do. Then you realize that I have no idea. So, please, a pair of scissors for you. Very much. And now? In the middle. The order is correct. Turn first, then stretch. Roll slowly. Exactly. And from now on, gravity works for us. How big should they be? So yes. Has something, yes. Now we have to try them too. Uwe, too? Sugar!! Do you even know which house we are in? No, I stumbled over here Can I introduce myself. We are in the first skyscraper of Vienna. I can take you up to the roof and we’ll take a look at the city from the top. Is that an idea? Sure, we’ll do it. Fresh air! But this is still a dwelling here, right? This is a large residential building, 240 parties in the house. And is still used as a normal home. And who lives there like that? In the old days, as it was built in 1931, it was the residence of the stars. It was the first skyscraper in Vienna. Curd Jürgens, the whole actor in Vienna, and there was strangely only … So, and now you have the best view of Vienna. That’s awesome! So I’m flattened. But if you want to go up here as a normal mortal, you have to first buy 5 kilos of candy, right? Since you have to ask the house. You can already ask the administration, if you can get up. But I’ll tell you, if you ask the porter nicely, we could not even go to the twelfth floor … Twelfth floor … … then that will certainly be possible. Can we run around once? Look here, St. Stephen’s Cathedral … Glorious. A secret, this terrace here. So, twelfth floor and the gatekeeper friendly smile. I really like that in Vienna: standing room for the opera! Very cheap! You stand, but you have the great opera spectacle for very little money, I think for five or ten euros. Let’s try that. Would have to fit in time. To. Good evening. Is the opera already running? Yes, it’s just a break. Is it possible to get a standing room after the break? I think so. But the ticket office is closed too. Do you do it again during the break? Do not think so. That’s so nice that you can see the whole opera on the standing room. Just have a look. Is beautiful? Is it worth it? Yes, yes. What is it? Khovanshchina. The Russian opera. Mussorgsky. Mussorgsky, exactly. A very powerful opera. Come on, let’s try it. Thank you very much! Ui. You go already? Ha! Uwe – a card. Hm. Are you going? And I eat a sausage outside. General admission ticket. Ground floor. Hach, I’m happy. See you soon! Now I have a standing room. This is what it looks like. Everyone can stand there, very comfortably. Right in front of the stage. Now the curtain is going up. So, Uwe, caught. How is the sausage? I got me a sausage – super delicious. You have to try it. Alright, I’ll smooth it out. Exactly. Should I turn off now? I tell you…. A fervor in this Russian opera! And now a sausage. What do you eat here now? Bosna, with coriander. Bosna? What’s this? Bosnian sausage? Still something to drink? Great beer to share. That must be in there now. Now let’s just push it over … Oh. Bottom up! For the benefit! Man, what an evening. Now comes the big special sausage … Sip beer … And? Great! This fresh coriander, a bit of spicy curry … Bottom up! Looks great up there. Totally different atmosphere now when it’s dark. Caution post. Guat’s Nächtle at the Badeschiff. That could also come from Swabia. We want? Clear! Are we still allowed? You may still, yes. Are we too early or too late? Too late. We are in the postseason now. Of course, our prime time is midsummer. So in the midsummer is very, very
difficult to get a place with us. We’re lucky now. Now you are lucky. Do you have anything with Gin with you? Of course we also have something with Gin. We can offer you something very special. We are a young collective, we make our own gin from the juniper berry. We always try to experiment with drinks a lot, For example, the Kaluko was created as well. This is a homemade iced tea, consisting of nine ingredients, almost no sugar in it. Even without gin a very refreshing drink. May I pour you something? Exactly, absolutely. A gin, and I take the variant without alcohol, this refreshing. So, once without alcohol and once with. Snow White and Rose Red. Once, oh, how was that? This is difficult. Goes. Wow! Is good? Oh, that’s good. That’s great and not too cute. Super. Sundeck. So you can end the day after all. Yes, we have made up for it, I think. That was really nice for the beginning and tomorrow? Tomorrow, so I will not go away before
we did not eat a schnitzel. We’ll get it, I think.
And I really want to go to the coffee house. You know, they do not say I want a coffee. Ne? Melange … or brown … Fiaker or we’ll take a look. Sounds good in any case. Come to me. Look, I’m swinging … In the pool. In the pool, exactly or in the city? Tata, the Hofburg, is not that a great picture? Wow! We are almost alone! I feel like Sisi. Look here, a little bit of orientation.
We’re here now, right through the Michaelaplatz got through here,
then here comes Spanish Riding School, Treasury, Hofmusikkapelle … a huge area. Do you know what this is about? English? You speak english? Ah, the Vienna Boys Choir. It’s now? Yes. And it’s for free? Okay, man of the Wiener Knabenchor sings, that’s why they’re all lining up here. Uwe .. we keep watching, right? Little farms and then it’s going to be this way again. Such a big place. This smells wonderfully like roses. And how. Ah, and look here, sponsorships. Keep smiling, Mum, Bussi, your kids. There are still some roses free for one
Sponsorship, Uwe, what would that be for you? What should be there? The moment is eternity. Now to the royal and imperial court sugar baker. Coffee house, I mean without that it does not even work in Vienna. Look here, a dignified entrance. Look here, all the pies …. Good morning, are those Sacher cakes in there now? Links are Sachertorten. The big ones? Exactly and the others are Annatorten. What are annotations? Annatures are quark bisquit, that will be sliced
Then you can see the tortilla in the bottle This is orange juice, grape sparkling wine and rum and then they are filled with
Parisian cream and the difficult one is on the second floor above,
there it will be covered with nougat. And the Annatorte is doing that now
Sachertorte competition or how? No, at all not, I can live well together, the two. Which tastes better? The Annatorte. We want to see something there
still happens behind. Here is good? Oh yes, that’s nice. Then you can see the background. Great thing. So now, can you recommend us something? I would say a melange. A melange? A melange and a beautiful Annatorte to. Yes Perfect.
We’re glad. Anna Demel cake … Look, here you come in, thinks clearly
Sachertorte must be with whipped cream Now there’s an Annademeltorte. Have we learned something else? Have we learned anything else, right? Oh, it starts. Yes, here we have the annotations. Oh, send. And now as a comparison, that’s the Sachertorte. Okay, so it’s a bit simpler now, ne. That’s a bit simpler, that’s right. And now the melange. It is exactly like that. Can we still get those? Yes of course. I like to get it. Tata, so now. Yes, you can do that. I’ll try Anna. That goes straight to the hip. Nonsense, they always tell. Very fine. So Annatorte can quite take the Sachertorte. For the benefit. For the benefit. It was great here, really. To know the world of the Demel. Yes, if I may give you a hint, yes, then visit the Capuchin Crypt. Capuchin crypt, oh, the curious Vienna. And there he shines in the most beautiful weather
Stephel, the landmark of Vienna. Look there … is so blatant … Hello, good morning, where are you going?
Horses? They go to the Winter riding school for morning training. Are these the Lipizzaners? Yes of course. The famous Morning training, where to … can you … can you have a look? Of course, come with me. Right now? Yes. Uwe, come on. That’s awesome here. Look, this is a worthy place. Wow! That’s nice. That’s training now, that’s morning work, as it’s described and that but you should not confuse with
a demonstration. That’s on the weekend? Yeah, that’s Saturday, Sunday and we have to do that
Always prepare for the horses Demonstration and have to spare for horses. They are trained to be on the Weekend really fun at work
to have. And then we feel it ourselves. Yes, but these are all spectator seats up here? That’s all that is about 1100 seats and in the morning
There are about 2000 people here. Oh, what we again experience here in Vienna. Court stables and now it’s the hip museum district, that must be absolutely. Wow … Look, let’s see if we can get hold of such a couch. Such a great idea right? So no visit to Vienna without the Museumsquartier MQ. Can hang out here all day, no. That’s how I imagined it. Really chilly. Yes, chill, that’s the right word. … within the seventh district, look here at the Museumsquartier we are now. Hip, trendy, popular… The colder season. It’s nice. But budget, you know. Yes I know. Can one even remember that way? Hello. That’s great here, so high spaces. Yes, that’s from an old factory. Old factory? Yes, there were shoes made and now it’s been vintage store for three years. Okay, and how’s it going? Quite well. So we have just unlocked, guests will come soon, let’s see. And here in the quarter … how does that develop when you realize that more and more is going on? It has developed a bit as Prenzlauer Berg as in Berlin. There are many small boutiques, small cafes … really colorful mix actually. Yes, colorful sweater too. Yes. Great, even knitted? No. It’s awesome here, 24 hours ticket for seven euros 60th So you can everywhere with train and Bus ride and the cool is yes, here on
this ring route with the 1 or with the 2, You can actually see all the great buildings of Vienna in passing. Can you get an overview here. Shall we get the city planner out .. are you sure we’re right here? Trust me, Tamina. 10th district, so what’s the point … that should be one of the gourmets of Vienna. The gourmets, here somewhere ..? Yes, here, ah gusto. Aha, good, hello. Oh, that’s too. Hello. Good day. Please come in. Can you get in? Yes, of course. Precious Saurer … And that is the centerpiece here? This is our business as we say in Vienna. Mhm, the business. And so we put out our different vinegars here. In fact, completely john-berry. And where is everything produced now,
can you still look a little bit more? Here in the first row are the oils that can enjoy tasting, not filtered nothing everything left natural.
Here we have stored various pure vinegar also our drinking acids, which are drinking vinegar, which one can take as a digestive, without alcohol. These are now fruit vinegar, pure handwork. So we tap with the hand in bottles Manually, it will be by hand
labeled, there are no machines us yes. So I want to have mine
Employees also have more feeling yes. This haptic moment a bottle
attack, smell vinegar, too tasting is quite different than running through the machine. Yes. Uwe, which one would you like to have now? Look, here I think is the price range that we still have can afford. Well, I would say
Currant was that, that was real too Well. Yes. Yes? is that the? Yes. Exactly. That costs 15 euros, do you still have that in the budget? yes, we just have it in the budget. Excellent! The Imperial Crypt …. Impressive, right? Yes. It’s a bit scary that they are all in there. Elisabeth Amalia, that’s the Sisi. This is the Sisi tomb and that’s probably why it’s decorated so nicely. Consort of Emperor Franz Joseph the First
and crowned Queen of Hungary. Exactly. Man, there is … the Sisi grave. So, Uwe, and now is time for Wiener Schnitzel. Look, Skopik and Lohn, here we are. Here
Eat Wiener Wiener Schnitzel and we too now. Are you two? Yes. May I help you. I can see it here. How big is that? The Wiener schnitzel actually the same size, that’s two pieces, so if you’d like to share that, that would not be a problem at all. Did that happen? Yes of course. Should I bring that to you? Yes. Would you like to drink a small sip of white wine? Yes. And cheers, on this beautiful city. Look here, what an invention. Yes, this is practical for the office
use, then you can then play. What’s that? These are aircraft trolleys that we convert into furniture. And as a bar table here so to speak .. For the office, if you need a short break. Okay and in there you can still stow something or how? Exactly. Since you can …. or as over there in the display because of the Terrace, for the kitchen with wooden board. Do you have a little ball for us? Where do I have to go? That works too. But the table is at an angle … 1: 0 for the locals. Come in, the Prater. There is not much going on yet. We’re rocking this now. That would be something for us, do you dare? One day … let’s do it. Thank you very much. Sun. Five euros, five euros. The highest chain carousel in the world. We want? Hopefully the Wiener schnitzel will not come up again. It goes up …. oh no oh no … the evening sun !!! What has cost us Vienna: We have
just fed 90 euros 20, the beautiful Hotel room was for 65 euros.
We have comparatively much for Admission issued, 66 euros. In the tram
we left a total of 28 Euro 40. And our souvenirs cost 15 euros. All in all, we only spent 265 euros 10. Great, is not it? For the very last time the legendary Ferris wheel. Yes, I just have to get it back. Where is it? There it is. How did you like Vienna? Casual, cool city. Yes. And definitely, two days are great. What were your highlights? My highlights were Definitely the schnitzel and the vinegar brewery. The guy was awesome. Mega informative. Pleasure, that’s what they can do here in Vienna. I also loved this mix of traditional town, a cozy town. The opera tickets, the standing room … I was not there. Yes, it was great anyway … And then the cool casual too, Donaukanal how one chills so cosmopolitan, museum quarter one could have stayed for hours. So I thought it was a great mix, our hotel was great, is also a recommendation really, you can support. Should there be more often. And it was fun too. So we’ll be back and loved it. Until next time.
