Hey guys! I'm headed to Vienna this Fall to study for about 4 months. I'm hoping that this turns into more of a 4 month backpacking adventure instead of a normal term, but I'll see where things take me. I know next to nothing about the city in which I'll be living and would like to know what you all liked best about Vienna and the area around it (day trips, etc.). Any recommendations for places to see on the weekends? I know it's still about four months until I get there but I'm anxious (and it's final exams week right now and I'm doing anything I can to procrastinate!!)

Thanks a lot

I've never been, but I've been dying to go to Bratislava. Cheaper than Vienna, since it is in Slovakia and very nice town with great party atmosphere.

Also plan a weekend away from your studies to go to Siofok in Hungary, preferably as long as it is still summer and the party is still on.
