As I mentioned before, I’ll be a tourist guide for students who just moved to Vienna, or would like to (re)discover Vienna, this semester.

Unit 1 of the “Wien-Tut” was an easy walk from our University’s main building at Karlsplatz to Stephansplatz (aka, the city center) and then we had a coffee and talked a bit about what they wanted to see in the next unit.

Well, that’s the extra-short version of it. Along the way, Boki and I showed them the Opera, the Albertina museum, the Crypt of the Habsburgs, Stock-im-Eisen-Platz, and my personal favourite in the first district: Blutgasse. The unanimous feedback was that the students want to see more of the unusual sights, sites and sides of Vienna, just like Blutgasse – so we decided we’d go see Zentralfriedhof cemetery next.

It’ll be great 🙂
