Huge world war 2 remnants. Too well build to be destroyed (economically), one is converted to Aquarium. Berlin and Hamburg also have these.

A nice aquarium. Nicely arranged, with many things to see. If you have visited any average or big aquarium, then you won't see anything new. Quite expensive for what it offers

There is nothing at all, around the Flakturm that tells you anything about how it was buildt, who buildt it, how many used it during airraids and so it. As if it doesn´t exist. It is an impressive and indestructable building

Amazing climbing wall lesson with Christina. Couldn't believe I got the chance to do it. One of the coolest things I've ever done.

An important reason to visit the Augarten. Is a stark reminder of the devastation and dark times of WW2.

I stopped by both during a leisurely walk around the aurgarten. The cylindrical one ('amargasaurus") had less visible bombing damage than the square one.

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
