  3. Stuart Allen says

    Great video guys! Glad you are enjoying Vienna!

    Another great place to visit in Vienna is the Gustav Klimt first kiss painting located in the Belvedere Museum! It’s a beautiful palace and the painting is a bonus.

    Also the Karlskirche Church is amazing too!

    Have a great time!

  4. Paul Green says

    Loved the video. Have been to Vienna three times and, most recently, in May where I did the sights from the film Before Sunrise. You pretty much captured the essence of Vienna. I also would recommend a tour of the parliament building. Stunning infrastructure And, if you are into that sort of thing, very interesting

  5. Jan Eskil Flåm says

    Amazing video! Great shots! Have a like from me!
    Makes me want to travel again : )
    I also made a video of my around the world travels:

  10. Bruno Gambini says

    I loved the video! It reminded the time I have been in Wien, more than 10 years ago. Have you been to a waltz concert? I remember to have gone to a place named Kursalon, where we could listen to great music, dance waltz and drink some good champagne!

  11. Sten hård says

    Speaking about cutlery Sam, I've noticed in your vlogs that you have, shall we say an unorthodox way of holding your utensils. While not wanting to make you feel bad, people do judge (and here I am pointing squarely at myself). Maybe compare your style to Audrey's, her style is on point.

  12. asia32b says

    Vienna!!!*_* one of the most beautiful towns!♡ so good memories:)

  13. Nicole Tomaski says

    Wow a long video today but awesome vlog either way and what a beautiful country thanks for showing all the amazing things.

  15. Sara1FiM says

    Looks like you guys had an awesome time. Did you know about vienna pass? you get entrance to loads of attractions, museums and can take buses around the city. Def worth it and saves a lot of money.
    I looove Austria but found Vienna my least fav place to be honest, I did like it but found Salzburg, Innsbruck, Tirol and little villages in Alps soooo much nicer and worth visiting. Austria is so gorgeous in general.

  16. Ilaria A. says

    The cats look like Sphinx to me. Nice video!

  17. Space Hobo says

    Good thing Sam got that little nap outta the way…..:-)……and Audrey, accentuating each syllable of audio rendered reading menus out there in the foreign, is a treat…:-)

  18. Trevor says

    Lol I was thinking before you said it that looks like the Ferris from the third man with Orson wells 🙂

  19. Slab Bulkhead says

    I'm leary of anything called the "oozing sausage".

  20. Clement Ng says

    Haydn, mozart, beethoven, schubert houses, eszterhaza palace castle, kunsthistorisches , belvedere? Sigmund freud….

  21. Clement Ng says

  32. Daniel&Naz says

    oo.. i like.. it was like a recap 🙂

  33. Paul Ricchiuti says

    Hello Sam, Audrey and anyone viewing this post – trying to plan my 10 day summer vacation (wife, and 2 kids ages 11 and 6), and while looking for various travel advice, came across the Sam and Audrey travel videos, and enjoyed the overviews of Poland and Hungary.

    We are flying from New York, and the 10 days includes travel time.

    We mainly like to tour the old towns, historically significant landscapes, and culturally significant architecture.
    Want something for the kids as well; not necessarily an amusement park, but something interesting and fun for them.

    Destinations considered are one of the following:

    1) Poland – Krakow and Warsaw
    2) Austria – Vienna and Salzburg
    3) Czech Republic – Prague and Cesky Krumlov
    4) Hungary – Budapest and Eger

    Any recommendations, especially what would be fun for the kids, is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

  34. myselfecemp says

    Vienna is a beautiful city, but I find it extremely boring.

  35. Mylon Ash says

    So the sausage looked really good to eat until Audrey announced that it was "pus sausage".  All righty, none for me please.  LOL

  38. R Lee says

  39. Claudia Berger says

    Ich bin Wienerin in 3. Generation. Und Ich kann euch Touristen sagen….Je besoffener Ihr seid, desto besser findet Ihr die Wiener Gastronomie!
