Another touch of luxury on our APT river cruise that took us from Passau to Salzburg and back to Linz in carriages fit for an emperor with excellent refreshments, service, comfort and quality operatic entertainment on the return journey. What a wonderful day.

second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative

take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
