... main course we were able to order a yummy Italian pizza. Finally for dessert, they gave us a crème like pudding topped with melted fudge. Sooo good. After dinner we walked over to the Coliseum and got to see it at night. That was so cool, since some of the best pictures I have seen of the Coliseum come from when it is lit up at night.
Sunday morning a group of friends and I got up at 5:30 am. We wanted to get into Rome nice and early to go to mass and then go shop at this ...
... br> We learnt all about making schnapps, and alcohol in general, and the various styles the OVSM make. Apparently is very easy to make schnapps at home, but just as easy to blow yourself up! In here is a bottle of Jack Daniels, signed by Mr Daniels himself.
We then head to the fun part of the tour, taste testing. The bar is lined with the top 10-15 schnapps the museum is most proud of and we are able to taste as many as we like. ...
... fabricated for use in more common ceremonies. These crowns would sometimes exceed the royal crown in beauty and splendor. After the king died, his personal crown would most often be destroyed, which is why few exist today. I spent about an hour and a half perusing the interesting artifacts of the treasury before moving on to my palace apartments tour.
I lined up for the tour outside of what many posters had advertised as “The Sisi ...
... the security check (no body scanner for me, yay) I was in the gate area, which unfortunately didn't hold many shops. I still got to buy friends for Felix, meaning a yodelling Baby Stasi and a Lederhosen wearing Teddy bear. Oh and I got a girly Magazine for the flight and a German Terry Pratchett book for boredom or if the films wouldn't be good.
The flight was not the most comfy experience due to me sitting in the last row in the aisle ...
... noon and we were excited to visit some other sights in the city!
So - back to the Stephansdom stop, and the center of town. We were planning to climb the church tower, but decided on some lunch first. There were many sidewalk cafes to choose from and we decided to go for something lighter - we had some "Mediterranean" salads with grilled tuna and chicken which was delicious with our Gruner Veltliner and Weissbier... There are over 300 steps to climb in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kaiserin Elisabeth Vienna
Located just few steps from the St. Stefan (and the Metro station by the same name), the hotel is really in the centre of the City.
Love Love Love this Hotel!
I paid 100.50 Euros per night for this hotel by booking on the internet. I thought I was going to get a shady little place that was away from the city center. Instead I got this fabulous hotel. It is right off the ring. The staff and excellent. I had booked a tour and was late getting back to the hotel and they held the tour pick up for me. The breakfast in the morning was very ample with both hot and cold choices. The room was very charming. I would stay here again in a heart beat.
This is a great hotel. It is right off of Stephansplatz, Kartner Strasse, and close to the Metro. We had a large room with king and 2 twins for our family of 2 parents, 18-year old son and 14-year old daughter. Room was large and comfortable. Bathroom was nice, no separate enclosed shower. The tub had a movable shower head, single sink. The breakfast was included and it was great, lots of bread and fruit choices, 2 hot items that changed every day, yogurt, juices, coffee, cold meats. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Their restaurant recommendations were perfect. We would definitely stay there again. It is close to everything.
Loved the Kaiserin Elizabeth
We picked the Kaiserin Elizabeth through the Internet and were delighted with this hotel.
It is a very sweet, intimate, cozy hotel with an excellent location and charming, helpful staff. The breakfasts were ample and varied. It was truly a home away from home and all six members of our group would welcome staying here again.
Cannot say enough about this fabulous hotel! The staff, the elegance, the breakfast and the location where absolutely perfect. I would return again.
Loved the HKE
Spent 5 nights at the HKE in October 2003. Hotel is wonderful. Great location. The front desk staff was very helpful. We had a suite, so we had plenty of space. No safe in the room, so had to use a safe deposit box, but this was very easy. Breakfast was delicious. Free computer use as well. Would highly recommend this hotel.
Really liked this hotel
We were very happy with our stay at the Kaiserin Elisabeth. The hotel is perfectly located, right near the Kartnerstrasse and St. Stephen's Cathedral. We stayed in one of the junior suites at 214 Euros per night, but we were given one night free over a winter weekend bringing the rate way down. The room was great, very large and a beautiful bathroom. The breakfast (included in rate) was truly superb with choice of pastries, meats, and fruit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.
