You don’t need to have a disaster just to pay a visit to one of Vienna’s better hospitals!
Fake a minor disaster and head to the AKH (Vienna‚Äôs general hospital) for a body check from the handsome doctor on night shift. Get a date, meet interesting personalities and examine the ghastly outcomes of real accidents. Be careful not to get lost in this labyrinth that is Europe’s biggest hospital; this man has patients to see and places to be.
The means of a happy ending is concrete planning: the Austrian ambulance is reachable under the telephone number 144. Waiting for arrival is sometimes necessary. Walk-in patients can make it via the U6 (Michelbeuern Allgemeines Krankenhaus).
But note: coming for a peek can be taken very seriously by some and is usually considered an act of delinquency. And dating a doctor comes with many spin-offs.
Tip: try to keep your visits brief; all sense of time diminishes in the windowless halls of the building. You wouldn’t want to miss your date now, would you?
