We did it! Thank you!

Well, after months of uncertainty, I'm happy to report we had a wonderful time in Austria! There was definitely an added stress traveling during a pandemic, but once there, it was magical :) All things considered, the trip had very few hiccups. And, we got to see my daughter, which was the whole point of the trip.

I want to thank all of you who helped me with details the last few months, especially with helping me decide on a hotel in Vienna and choosing which concerts to attend. Staying at Motel One by the Opera House was the best choice, as it turned out that was probably my favorite area of the city! The Tonkunstler Orchestra concert at Musikverein was a major highlight of the trip!

Oh yes, the Motel One Staatsoper is in a great location both for the sights and public transit. I've always appreciated their generous breakfast spread, which would keep me going for hours. I'm curious what they're doing for breakfast during the pandemic?

Glad you had a great time and a nice visit with your daughter!

Good to hear about another successful trip during the trying times of Covid.

CWsocial- we actually did not do their breakfast. We spent many mornings running to the nearby SPAR (we love going to grocery stores in other countries!) and one morning we found a place for probably the best breakfast I've ever had! Sadly, I can't remember the name (it was south of Karlzplatz)

Thanks for your report. I just booked the Motel One Staatsoper myself.
