Berlin to Vienna

May 2, 2014

I landed at Tegel on Friday morning, three days before my meetings were scheduled to start in Berlin -- still not sure how I would spend those three days. My original plan of flying to Sarajevo had fallen through, and having tried unsuccessfully to change my plans to travel later, I hadn't made other plans.

But the idea of traveling to Vienna, to try to learn a little more about the original crown prince Rudolf resonated with me. Outside Tegel, I found a bus going to the Hauptbahnhoff. There, I asked about Vienna. A train was leaving in 45 minutes, allowing enough time for a warm pretzel and cappucino before settling in for a beautiful, all-day ride through Germany and Bohemia.
