Hello fellow jet-setters, we are in Vienna, Austria!
Vienna lies on the Danube Canal and is about a four hour train ride from Salzburg and a nine hour train ride from Zurich.
You can easily walk the pedestrian-only Kartnergasse. Kartnergasse is the Rodeo Drive of Viennaâlots of shopping! Stop by âtheâ? landmark in Vienna: St. Stephanâs Cathedral (Stephansdom). Then head out of the city slightly to visit Schronbrunn Palaceâthe summer home of the former Empress Sisi. Be sure to read our Destination Guide on Vienna for more information on this High-Baroque city! When youâre ready to lay your head to rest, head to the journeyPod pick, Grand Hotel Wein. Pamela Anderson and Placido Domingo stayed here recently. The touch-screen telephones in each room are literally âcommand central.â?
journeyPod met with Celine Brigg, the Public Relations Manager of the Grand Hotel Wein.
Check out the unique sounds of Man Bites Dog and their song âPalace Of Dreams.â?
