After a great translators’ conference it’s time to explore the city and the country.

Day trip to Melk Abbey and Wachau

BP18 Translation Conference Vienna, 21 April Melk day tripAn obvious and easy day trip from Vienna takes you through the Wachau section of the Danube, an hour West of the capital.  Here you can visit the old castle of Dürnstein where Richard Lionheart was once held.  The group will continue upriver among vineyards by bicycle and boat, then finally reach the highlight of the day: the Melk Abbey, imposing over the river.

Details of the tour are to be confirmed later.

Sightseeing in Vienna

You may join a walking or a biking tour, or visit the cultural riches of the city at your pace, according to your taste.  Vienna offers a wide range of must-see spots, from the the Spanish Riding School to Hundertwasser’s house, from the Schönbrunn Palace to Klimt’s paintings at the Belvedere, and many more.

Sunday flea market

It’s hard to find a better way to kill a Sunday morning than to stroll along the antique market at Naschmarkt – you can easily combine this with a visit to the nearby Secession building.
