Grinzing is consciously old-worldly like Niagara on the Lake but it's charming anyway. We walked up the hill looking at the baroquish buildings. It was very very hot and we got very very hot, so we slipped into the Beethoven Heuringen and (horrors) Dewi had a BEER while Eufron had the obligatory spritzer. The beer was ok but the wine was too sweet.
When we’d cooled down, it was back again to Schottentor, onto the 44 tram, and
then we decided to go to the end of the line and back. Unfortunately the tram
didn’t go quite to the end of the route: the driver was not returning as it was
the last run for that tram. Instead, he tried to be helpful and took us to the
nearest 43 tram stop, which he thought would take us to our hotel.
Then back to the
hotel, exhausted. Too tired to eat supper, we fell into bed.
