The first thing that gets me really excited about winter and December in general is Christmas and, more precisely, Christmas markets. There is something about them which makes me feel so festive and puts me in a great mood.
Linz is Austria’s third-largest city, although it is not as famous as Vienna or Salzburg. However, it is worth the visit if you find yourself in the north of Austria one day, or if you are a fan of electronic arts and modern art in general.
Exactly one year ago today – the day that I started to write this post – I went to the IAEA Staff Association ball in the stunning Hofburg Palace, in the centre of Vienna. This has probably been one of the highlights of last year as it was truly an extraordinary experience.
Last September I moved to Vienna for a few months, and during this time I tried to travel as much as possible in and around Austria. My very first weekend there was thus dedicated to Austria’s third-largest city, Linz.
