The Cobalt team in Vienna

At the beginning of the month, we were on team building in Vienna. We visited the city’s highlights and had some #cobalt fun.

Friday, September 2, the day we arrived, we went to take a look at the Danube and the Donauturm, which is the highest building in Austria. Later on, we found a great place where we had some burgers and watched “The Crazy Roaring Sixties Show”, a live band playing classic rock tunes.

The Schönbrunn experience

The second day of our trip started with a tour of the Schönbrunn Palace and gardens. First, we went to see the front yard and the Palace, then we went up to the Gloriette, where the royals used to serve breakfast.

On our way down, we stopped at the Schönbrunn Zoo. This is one of the few places from the world where you can see giant pandas climbed up in trees and chewing lazily on bamboo. Also, we took a look at the Amazon rainforest recreation and at the lovely polar bear, which was having its swimming time. Take a look!

For lunch, we tried the famous Wiener Schnitzel at a local place called “Zum Bettelstudent”. It’s as good as rumor has it!

Our team at the Prater

After lunch, we headed to Prater, Vienna’s amusement park. On our way, we took a look at the amazing landmarks from the Ringstrasse, such as the Opera house, the Hofburg Palace, the Museums Quarter (short MQ) and finally the impressive St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

Finally, we arrived at the Prater, where we tried out different roller coasters and had some fun in the bumper cars. The Boomerang was the first roller coaster we tried. Later on, we found out that it was the only one which did not use shoulder straps and that had a top speed of 85km/h. Check out the video from when we were riding the Boomerang.

Preparing for the “race”

To relax after the busy day, we played Dixit. We had to match our “dreamy” cards to a short description invented by the storyteller. You can see the result below 😄

Sunday, before we left Vienna, we went to Kahlenberg Platz. Fortunately, the sky was clear and we could enjoy the view from 484 m high.

And finally, us, the cobalt team, in our brand new t-shirts, stating: “If you’re waiting for a sign. This is it.” #cobaltsign
