|Metro ride and beautiful scenery|
Today's major plan was to take the metro and travel around Vienna, then attend a musical show. One of our friends living there, had recommended us the Volkspor (the people's theater). For budget travelers with kids, it was quite an affordable place to look for concerts and shows. They have an online easy access reservation procedure and we were able to buy standing tickets for all of us (costing 3 Euro per person).
We were not sure how long the kids will last since most of the musicals were 3-4 hours long, so it wasn't too risky to try this one. We took the metro and arrived to another district.
The Volksoper building was easy to find and the staff helpful and well-organized. My 5 year-old was looking around, interested in the huge space and was looking forward for the start of the show.
After 15 min of standing, we gradually occupied the vacant places in the gallery and enjoyed the rest of the show from there. Even though, it was in German, it was easy to follow and the singing and dancing as well as the beautiful stage set-ups were all worth it.
