I just started a German course on Neuer Markt, and that takes me down Kärntnerstraße every morning. It’s a good feeling to have something to get up for every morning!
Last weekend I did the second Stadtwanderweg, which turned out to be absolutely fantastic. We spent about 5 hours in total, including a lunch break and some sightseeing. This path is starting and ending in the 19th district, close to Neustift am Walde.
View towards Neustift am Walde
Jesus is always watching over us wherever we are walking in Austria.
Blindschleiche, we think. Hard to say. Does anyone know?
The Habsburgwarte on Hermannskogel, built in 1888. This is the reference point of the land measuring in Austria. They decided to make this the reference point in 1892 already.
The explanation in German.
And it had a smashing view over Vienna! And Klosterneuburg on the other side.
We stopped and had lunch at Gasthaus zum Agnesbrünnl, which is located close to a water source which in the old days was claimed to have healing powers. It was extremely picturesce.
We also went past Cobenzl.
And looked at the life-circle of trees.
Lots to see, beautiful views and a chance to get ice cream on the way, I have to say I can recommend Stadtwanderweg 2!
So I have been very quiet lately. But a lot has happened, which explains my absence. I moved apartments and now live with a very cool guy, I finished my doctorate, and the unemployment services are coursing me in how to get a job. All of this combined has meant that I have checked out a bit.
So, behind the sound barriers and trees across the street here is my new home. It has yet to get a kitchen installed, but we’ve been dealing ok with it. In other words, we have a microwave oven. And live next to an all you can eat buffet…
The 22nd is different. It’s quieter, greener, people have gardens, and there is an abundance of Hofer shops.
Also, instead of having a view to the next building outside you see green things. Trees. As a person growing up on the countryside I’m absolutely loving the change. so, now I will more frequently show you places in Transdanubia. Although I am still in the city almost every day.
