Vienna Excursion (weekend trip) 7.12.2007-9.12.2007 [canceled: too few participants]


You're going to see Austria's capital city Vienna during a whole weekend from Friday afternoon until Sunday evening. We will stay in Vienna at a nice hostel which is not far away from the center of the city. So you have the opportunity to explore Vienna at night with us or your friends after the day program!
We will take the train to Vienna on Friday afternoon, and we will be back at Graz on Sunday evening. We will stay for two nights at a hostel (breakfast included). On Friday evening a small, nice, non-touristic Christmas market with its mulled wine or a punch (glogg) will provide a gentle entry-point to Vienna's nightlife, which we will afterwards explore together. During the two following days you will get to know Vienna by enjoying the activities we have selected for you and exploring the city on your own during your free time.
