[Austria] Austrian National day-Selfie with President! 奧地利國慶日

I still remember last year when I see some friends who were in Austria posting pictures with Tanks on street, the first thought was “What Happened”! Are you as surprised as me? That’s how they celebrate National day!

Here are the things you can do on their National day:

還記得去年看到朋友分享路上開著坦克車的照片時,閃過的第一個念頭就是大事不妙了!你也跟我一樣驚訝嗎?這就是奧地利慶祝國慶日的方式!

以下是我推薦在國慶日可以參加的活動


Close contact with Military Arsenals/與軍事設備近距離接觸

In front of Rathaus people get the opportunity to see, touch and even climb on the tanks. What’s more, if you are curios or you have questions about them, there will be friendly soldiers to answer your questions. People get to know more about the team, how and who are keeping them safe.

在Rathaus前面會有各式的坦克車,直升機…。人們可以和這些平常沒機會看到的軍事設備有近距離接觸,也看到好多小孩子都爬到坦克車上了!在人群中可以聽到軍人們親切的提醒民眾可以拍照,也可以看到他們在細心的解答人們的疑惑。在這樣的氛圍中「人民的保母」這個詞很自人的就會浮現,人們可以更清楚的了解是誰,用什麼樣的方式保衛著自己家園。



Selfie with the Federal President/ 與總統合照

On this day, the door of the Federal Chancellery will be opened and welcomes everyone to come and say hi to the president. You get to shake hands and chat with the president in person, and what’s more? You get to take a selfie with him! Are you as amazed as me? I know that many countries are friendly and welcoming, but I never know that they can be this welcoming.

國慶日這天聯邦總理辦公室會對外開放,任何人都可以來和總統握手,把你想說的任何話跟他說,甚至還可以和他自拍!還有比這裡更友善的國家嗎?


Visit museums/ 參觀博物館

National day is also a good time to visit museums. There are many federal museums with free entrance fee or with discounted price.
