    Stop At: St. Rupert's Church (Ruprechtskirche), Morzin Platz on Ruprechtsplatz, Vienna 1010 Austria

    St Rupert’s Church is 13 centuries-old and is made from stone taken from an ancient Roman settlement. Home to the oldest stained-glass window and the oldest bells in Vienna, the church is dedicated to St. Rupert of Salzburg, the patron saint of the Danube's salt merchants. Though the church went through several renovations, one window, which depicts Christ on the cross with the Madonna and Child standing below, has been standing since the 13th century in the vaulted apse. The church houses a series of atmospheric concerts of ancient music in the summertime, with evening performances in July.

    Stop At: Backerstrasse No. 2, Vienna Austria

    One peculiar and incredibly old mural to check out can be found on Bäckerstrasse, a street with charming interior courtyards. In the 15th century, many houses presented religious and historic portraiture, but some were decorated with humorous imagery. Found on the façade of the Hasenaus (“Hare House”), the mural shows a wolf and a cow that wears spectacles playing a game of backgammon. Some say the scene is actually part of a previous painting depicting medieval life, while others think that the mural is an allegory for the conflict between Protestants and Catholics.
