Four Fulda High School students and ten adults toured Austria, Germany and Switzerland beginning on June 24th. They returned home on July 3rd. They traveled through Education First Education Tours.

Students who made the trip included Maddie Dibble, Myah Holinka, Jeremy Welling and Taylor Kenney. Adults on the tour were Stephanie Strenge, Lori Goedtke, Jenny and Brian Gerdes, Trudy and Karmel Holinka, Ann and Meg Witzel, Stacey Dibble, Roxanne Kenney and Rachelle Hayslett.

The group flew overnight to Austria and arrived in Vienna where they took a walking tour of the City. They visited the Vienna State Opera House and attended a concert of Mozart’s Music. While touring the Vienna Opera House, they were able to see the Emperor’s personal opera box. “The city is known for its art. At present there is quite a bit of graffiti everywhere which our tour guide said is a new form of art that the city is trying to embrace,” Strenge, organizer of the tour, explained.

The tour of Vienna included seeing the wide boulevards (the Ring) commissioned by Emperor Franz Josef in 1857, a ride past the Parliament, City Hall and the Hofburg which was where the powerful Habsburg family dynasty prevailed, and Schonbrunn Palace where Marie Antoinette spent her childhood.

After spending two days in Vienna, the group traveled to Salzburg for a walking tour of the Old Town, which is known for its baroque architecture. Salzburg is the home of musician Wolfgang Mozart. It is also is noted for its attractive setting and scenic Alpine backdrop, which Strenge, Goedtke, and Jenny Gerdes created a very “Stunning, beautiful landscape.” “We saw cows wearing bells, and a farmer herding cattle on a very, very steep mountainside,” Strenge commented. “Right across from our motel was a herd of goats who were wearing bells.” “We could hear those bells all night long as the goats moved,” Jenny Gerdes added.
