Vienna – Kunst, Klimt & Kaisersachen



When I asked a friend of mine what there was to do in Vienna, she replied with: Sachertorte. Und Kaisersachen und so…

meaning Kaiserthings and such…

This, I found, was a pretty accurate description of my trip to Vienna, Kaiserthings referring to palasts and monuments associated with Kaiser Franz Joseph and his wife Sissy.
