Austria 10 June: Vienna

in the capital

Good morning Vienna! The majestic capital of Austria greeted us under a blue sky!

Our gratitude to "Harry's Home Hotel" for supporting the Peace Run. We really enjoyed our stay!

...the imperial city...

We arrived at the private school "Infinum". Also a school class from the "Rothenburgschule" joined in. It was quite hot indoor...

...so we went outside!

Much better!

The kids turned the running into a Peace Run Marathon!

At least ten times back and forth....

Thank you for the enthusiastic meeting!

The Islamic school "Avicenna" was next!

...the kids lined up for "High Five"...

...the principal received the torch....

Thank you "Anicenna" for the joyful meeting!

...if you ever visit Vienna, the traditional "Sacher" cake is a must!

Our next meeting: the "Swedish School"!

We met the kids in a small park near the school...

...a short run...

...and a spontaneous relay run with the kids....

Thank you for the fun!

...a quick meeting...

...sightseeing in Vienna: we went up on the "Cobenzl"

A great view over the city!

...a group picture with the statue of the founder of the Peace Run, Sri Chinmoy.

Mr. Auer, landlord of the Cobenzl and a good old friend of the Peace Run....

In the evening we honored Mrs. Grete Laska, former deputy Mayor of Vienna, with our "Torch Bearer Award" for her tireless effort for the city of Vienna and her citizens!

Thank you for your service to humanity!
