Our explorations took us to the spa town of Baden, which is situated just south of Vienna. The train ride took about 20 minutes and the scenery was lined with vineyards and farm land. Walking through the beautiful town was wonderful and had a side of sulfuric smells to go with it every now and then. Overall, we would definitely be back to test out the baths when the weather cools down.

And of course, a town in Austria is not one without a church.  In Baden, it was another St. Stephens. It has both Gothic and baroque architectural features and dates back from the Romanesque period. This is also home to the first performance of Mozart’s “Ave verum” in the 1792. It has some beautiful stained glass and one of my favorite organs to date!

It didn’t surprise me that this little town was dotted with all sorts of water features.

After seeing Monte Carlo in Monaco I don’t think anything else can compare to it, but this is a still pretty impressive looking casino.

These were also randomly placed around town, which I thought was adorable!
