dieser Fahrt eine traumhafte Abendstimmung.

Heute war der erste Programmpunkt die Wachablöse beim Buckingham Palace; Danach besichtigten wir im Rahmen einer Hop on – Hop off – Tour verschiedene Stationen wie Hyde Park, Trafalgar Square, St.Paul`s Cathedral und Tate Modern. Die anschließende Fahrt auf der Themse rundete das Programm ab.

Die Besichtigung des Towers, dessen Entstehung auf Wilhelm den Eroberer zurück zuführen ist, stand heute auf dem Programm. Danach genossen wir die tolle Sicht von der Tower Bridge und besichtigten „The Tower Bridge Experience“ mit glasklarem Blick auf die darunter fahrenden Autos auf der Brücke. Am Nachmittag war eine Fotorallye angesagt, wo verschiedene Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Kew Gardens, The Gherkin, The Shard, Westminster Abbey, Piccadilly Circus mit Eros-Brunnen, The Temple und vieles mehr mit Selfies zu belegen waren. Das Highlight des Abends

Zunächst wurde das Kuriositätenkabinett von Ripley am Piccadilly Circus besucht, wo rätselhafte Gegenstände (believe it or not) ausgestellt waren. Anschließend genossen wir in Covent Garden die vielen Straßenkünstler und prämierten die schönsten Selfies der Fotorallye. Danach waren wir beim British Museum. Ein Besuch des idyllischen Camden Town beendete den letzten Besichtigungstag.

Mit sehr vielen schönen und stimmungsvollen Eindrücken und viel Wehmut flogen wir von London Gatwick nach Wien Schwechat. Mit dem Wissen, dass uns London wieder sehen wird, landeten wir in Wien. Es war eine sehr gelungene und vielfältige Reise.

Our trip to London

On April 7th, 2015 our class, the HL3A and two of our teachers, Mrs. Fürst und Mrs. Neugschwendtner took the plane from Vienna Schwechat Airport to London Gatwick. After arriving at our hotel in Kensington, we still had time to visit the ´London Eye´ to enjoy the stunning view of London by night.

The following day we watched the changing of the guards in front of Buckingham Palace at 11 o´clock and then we started a ´Hop on – Hop off Tour´ round London where we stopped at several sights and places, including Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, St. Paul´s Cathedral, Tate Modern, the Shard, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. At each stop, one of us gave a short presentation about the sight. To get another view of the city we took a boat tour on the river Thames. Later during that day we had some time off to visit Oxford Street for some shopping.

Our second day began with a tour through the Tower of London which was close to our next meeting point, the Tower Bridge Exhibition. For the afternoon our teachers had prepared a scavenger hunt. Therefore we split up into smaller groups and travelled to three different sights in the city. We had to take photos of ourselves with the sight in the background. Our first stop was Westminster Abbey. After taking the photograph, we headed for Kew Gardens. When we arrived, everything seemed very quiet and calm. The atmosphere was relaxing, and we had warm and sunny weather. When we looked at the nice surroundings and the pretty houses, we thought that only the wealthy Londoners could afford to live in such a place. We tried to enter Kew Gardens itself, which is a park, but it was already closing. So we just bought ice cream and took the photo.

After that we went to the Swiss Re Building, which is widely known as ´The Gherkin´ and which is recognized as one of the most distinctive skyscrapers in the financial district of London. In the evening we visited the musical “Wicked“, which was one of the highlights of our journey.

A thrilling museum was on the agenda in the morning of our third day. We went to see all kinds of weird and rare discoveries in Ripley´s museum. To recover from this strange experience we spent some time in Covent Garden and enjoyed strolling around there. It was also a good place to get some presents for friends and relatives.

That afternoon some of us took public transport to get to Camden. It is a unique part of London – we think the people, the things they´re selling and the whole atmosphere is a lot different from the other parts of the city. When we arrived,we could choose what we wanted to do. Of course most of us went shopping, but a few just wandered round the streets, watched the street artists, who were entertaining people on every corner or just went to a pub to have a drink or something to eat.

After about an hour and a half we decided to leave Camden, although some peoople wanted to stay a little bit longer. We think we can say that Camden was one of the best places we visited.

Time flew, but we think we used it well to get a first impression of the city of London. However, it´s definitely necessary to go back and see more of it.
