The Genuss Fest is an annual food festival celebrating all things Austrian and culinary. The entire park was dotted with white tents each labeled with a sign signifying which state they are from. There was cheese, bread, meat, wine, and a whole lot of it! I bought a few things to take home with me and also some cheese for dinner that night. My friend John and I settled on an food tent from Tyrol for lunch. He had Käsespetzle, which is pretty much cheesy noodles (but so much more) and I had Grötzl with Sauerkraut salad. Grötzl is sort of like hashbrowns but mixed with bacon and other types of pork. It's all top off with a sunnyside up egg. Needless that meal kept me full for lunch and dinner.
That night I went back into the Innere Stadt with my roommate Sophie to go to PopFest - an annual pop fest of course! It was held right in front of Karlskirche over the fountain; with all the lights and the music it was a pretty cool scene. We met up with Sophie's friend Magdalena who was so much fun!
