Inside Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s cathedral) in the middle of the city. This place gets a lot of tourists at all times of the year. Must be a bit testing for those attending mass regularly.. but then, it is definitely a church worth seeing.
Every year there’s an event called the Vienna Night Run, where people run 5 km to raise money for operations for blind children. This year the tees were purple.
Everyone has dogs in Vienna. And they take them everywhere too… I was surprised when I first moved here, and saw dogs in clothing stores, all over the city also during the day, small, big… all sorts of dogs! It’s quite nice, apart from all the dog shit…. (dogs are not allowed in supermarkets).
Waiting to cross the street at Spittelau.
The Museum of Natural History is a place well worthy of a visit. It’s in a really beautiful building which was built around 1850 (some details can be seen in this picture). They also have an impressive Dinosaur display, but this is part of the entry area. Today it was open late.
Along the Danube Canal, it’s allowed for anyone to spray/paint/draw whatever they want on the concrete surfaces. This guy is spraying something up on the bridge pillar. @ Heiligenstädter Lände
Yes, it is the Austrian word for storm, but it also refers to young wine that has yet to ferment. Which the Austrians love to drink. And it’s Sturm time now!
There are a few of these around Vienna, which is the first city I’ve ever seen them in. Great if you get a flat tyre on a Sunday, when absolutely all bike stores are closed (along with most other stores; only restaurants and bars are open on Sundays, as well as a very few dairies and supermarkets).
The most popular place in Vienna during summer. Even late in September, one week before they close they are really busy. Ich liebe Haselnuss!
Seeing as we don’t have a beach, the canal and the river are popular hangouts. In the last couple of years a number of ‘beach bars’ have popped up along the canal.
This used to be a car bridge (I think). It’s the bridge over from Heiligenstadt to Donauinsel, and beyond.
Marketlife is still alive when it’s raining. Radatz is the place to go for gourmet meats and the like. This is a small market in the 3rd district; Rochusmarkt.
This morning on their way somewhere…
On a beautiful day like this it’s perfect to walk down from Kahlenberg to Grinzing, passing all the wineries on the way.
Waiting for the subway at Spittelau
They still have labels. It was decided not long ago that the cigarette companies will have to do without colours and designs, and just have white packaging with health warnings. so I suppose the machines may change in the future too.. I don’t smoke, but I like the lit up display.
At the canal. This guy is down there just about every day… I’ve rode past him a lot this summer while taking my bike to and from work. He’s always fishing. I always wonder when I see people fishing down by the canal if they eat what they catch. One day I should ask someone..
Either way, it’s a really nice piece. I see a man.
95 Metres high. Somehow it’s very quiet up there.
I got intrigued, because he used no protective gear. I asked, and he just said ‘not needed, the bees are quite calm.’
