Vienna – Day 7

Our last day in Vienna. This trip has gone incredibly fast. After making our luggage, we return to the central station and put our bags in some lockers. We still have a busy day ahead of us before we leave to the airport. This morning is all about Secession. The Wiener Secession is de physical embodiement of the architecture style and was designed by Joseph Maria Olbrich. We visit the museum and learn all about the building and the Beethoven frieze through an audioguide.

A little bit further down the road is the Majolikahaus, a building designed by Otto Wagner. The facade is very impressive, so even if we can’t enter, it’s still worth walking over there.

In the afternoon we focus on the work of Friedensreich Hundertwasser. We eat our lunch at the fountain in Hundertwasser Village, after which we walk to his museum. Here is an exposition of a lot of his artwork. Here we can experience his organic design first hand. Corners are rounded, floors seem to dance beneath our feet. Not a straight line in sight.

We have some time to spare and decide to relax in the park of Belvedere Palace. We talk about all the impressions this trip left us, but eventually it’s time to leave. We end our day, and our adventure, at midnight in Brussels Airport.
