Today I made the season’s first visit to the Christmas market at Karlsplatz. The market here has a lot of art stuff and jewellery.
It also has some quirky stuff, like this home made, bicycle powered carousel. It’s really quite charming. :)
I was quite mesmerised by these lovely creatures of light that danced and moved around the market. They were so incredibly soothing.
I stalked them for quite a while. :-D
It’s pretty busy during the day at Schottentor Ubahn station. This is the stop for the largest university in Vienna. :-)
So the season has started! I stumbled upon this market in Mariahilfer strasse yesterday, looking very festive in spite of the unseasonably warm weather. :-)
People don’t seem to mind!
Well. This morning at least. I walked some of the way to uni in full rainwear, feeling like a champion :-D
My morning walk was, as always in this city, a fairytale. After all these years living here I just like it more than ever. :-)
Today is the opening night for many Christmas markets in the city, I accidentally stumbled upon the one at Wien Mitte as I had an errand there. Hurrah! This is the nicest time of the year!! :-D
So we got a small Indian summer almost, even if the temperature is “only” around 18 degrees. I have loved these days very much. Being able to stroll home through the lovely streets of Vienna without being cold at all. Yummy. I took this picture of Belvedere a morning where there was next to no wind. :-)
