In Vienna every man's home is his dungeon from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Vienna is a city of flats, and at 10 p.m. the common entrance door of each block is closed and bolted. Thereafter persons passing in or out must pay a fine of 2d. to the concierge until midnight, and 4d. from that hour to 6 a.m. To go out to post a letter costs 2d., and the same amount to return. To prolong a visit to a friend after 10 p.m. means 2d. to get out of his house and 2d. more to enter your own. A natural result of this irritating tax is that of all capital cities Vienna is earliest to bed.
