Highlights of this trip were Christmas markets ,
Meissen factory, German beer and sausage, and El Greco, which is surprising.
And 2 of us were fascinated by Klimt's works. Actually, it may be only me.
Some of German Austrian food is good.
Also, the national library in Vienna was impressing.
We had a hard time to find restaurants in Salzburg and Graz.
End up, we ate so-so foods there.... Don't Austrians eat out much?
