A long weekend away to Vienna.

View 1998 Vienna on nzhamsta's travel map.

These four days were spent wandering around the city centre, including a trip out to Schönbrunn Palace (Schloß Schönbrunn), and the main city cemetery (yup, the Zentralfriedhof is a tourist attraction with many famous graves, Beethoven, Mozart etc).

I also went for a day trip to Baden, a spa near Vienna. Nice small place, but weather not very friendly.
