Description

I stumbled on the one day, and it was awesome! Exploring a city is filled with connetions. Where you realize that the 'Naschmarkt' that everyone tells you to go to is really the same place you had been going to - you just didn't realize the name.

Stumbling onto Karlsplatz via Ubahn was one of these experiences for me. First, the station is great fun. It is massive, because there are entrances at each of a number of far corners.

The exit towards Karlsplatz is like an underground garage. You could drive cars right now a ramp and into the station. You stroll up and you are in a gorgeous park and in the middle of Vienna.

I love the Ubahn in part for the dramatic reveals that you get. The best is coming up the Stephansplatz exit. You ride up an escalator, and then look up, straight up, and the spires of St Stephans reveal themselves, at first high, impossible high and then you ascend to street level and it is still massive, but then there are some near human features. You can see the door, and the ground for reference and you are not lost entirely within the heavens.

Donauinsel has another reveal. Especially in the whispy snow and grey sky which i had. You glide to a stop, get off the train, and then you are in the MIDDLE OF THE RIVER! Really.

There is a fantastic park, a great Christmas Market, the Naschmarkt and Seccession are across the street
