The Last Day of the Course

Today was the last day of the German course. We had a short test and were learning more about genitiv. It won’t be my favorite 🙂
In the test I only had a few mistakes, mostly because it is hard to remember all these words. This is why I started to watch TV, I recognize the words there and I remember them easier then.

I really liked the course, it is very detailed, our teacher answered all our questions and was patient with us. The location was excellent, easy to reach, close to the Mariahilferstraße.
It is great that I see every day that I improve. I speak better, I understand the people more. Even my husband noticed that.

The course is over so this is my last post, have fun and good luck with German!

Cemetery of the Nameless

Cemetery of the Nameless – Friedhof der Namenlosen.
It is a very small but special cemetery in Vienna. The bodies buried here were washed up by the nearby river Danube because of the strong currents of the river, however it changed when the Vienna Harbour was built. Most had drowned in it, many had committed suicide.
They could not be buried in the Zentralfriedhof because of religious reasons.
It has two parts, the old one is abandoned and completely overgrown today – it was flooded frequently, so they opened another part which can be visited today.

It has a special atmosphere and a little chapel. It is a little tricky to find, hiding in an industrial part behind a new dock and huge grain silos. It is definitely worth a visit. It can be reached by bus 71 from Enkplatz, until the stop Wien Hafen. Then it is about 10 minutes on foot, in the industrial area. (Please check the exact location before you go, we managed to get lost first time)
