Monday 29th and Tuesday June 30th

After the students all spent an exciting weekend with their host families, we started off our Monday morning with a visit to the Hundertwasserhaus, a colourful apartment complex in the heart of Vienna. We then visited the KunstHaus, in which paintings by Friedensreich Hundertwasser are displayed. After lunch, we spent several hours at the Prater, an amusement park in the center of Vienna. The students went on rollercoasters, played arcade games and finally rode the famous Riesenrad (Ferris Wheel), which has become an important landmark in Vienna, and featured in the famous old movie, “The Third Man”.
Today, we spent our day at Schoenbrunn, the Habsburg summer residence. We started off by taking a tour of the palace, before exploring the beautiful palace gardens. Then, students explored the oldest zoo in the world, which is located within the palace grounds.
