Megan Doyle - “Venturing to Vienna”

Megan Doyle

Megan moved to the UK after starting her studies at the University of Hawai'i. After travelling and working in many countries, Megan went on to study International Events Management at the University of Brighton. She graduated in July 2016.

Austria is known for it’s scenic cities: Innsbruck, Salzburg, Gratz, and Vienna. Vienna is regarded in history for its place in WWI, with large monuments, old buildings that survived the war, and a strong culture. 

This city suits international students because of its’ location in Europe, the wild nightlife, and the diverse cultures that have diverged there. Vienna has a few international schools and universities, including the University of Vienna and  Vienna University of Economics and Business. The city really enticed me because I have always heard about the green buildings of Vienna and the diverse culture of Austria. I was really intrigued by how much German culture has influenced the country.

The best way to get to Vienna would be by buses that can be booked on goeuro.com. This is the cheapest transport route to the city, costing between 6 and 10 euros if booked in advance.

Some of my favourite things to do in Vienna are: 

The Prater

This park at the edge of Vienna is renowned for the vast attractions for all types of thrill seekers. The rides and attractions are all reasonably priced for students.

Take a Free Walking Tour

Walking tours are one of the best things to do in Vienna due to the remarkable history of the city. This company also organises bar crawls...

Visit the Treasury

The Treasury in Vienna is like no other. It holds ancient artifacts of the country’s descendants as well as history 

Justice Cafe (JuztisCafe)

This cafe has one of the best views of Vienna. To get to the top, you must go through metal detectors as it is a government building.

 After a coffee at the Justice Cafe, it’s time for the bus to Brno!
