Through the summer, the opera house has a goodie for those who like opera. They screen live feeds of the performances that are showing. So, on a nice evening, one can snuggle up in one of the chairs outside, and watch an entire opera on the big screen. Probably even getting a better view than some of the people inside! With subtitles! 😀
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. 😀
Yesterday I went to the opening of the winter village at Museumsquartier. I like it because it’s just a place to chill out, and no stalls or shop selling stuff, just drinks and food. And music.
There were a LOT of people there yesterday, and my selfie stick came in handy. Unfortunately my phone is not so great for night shots.
But the atmosphere was great, and even though there were too many people to even find a place to stand comfortably, it’s nice to see that the punsch season is finally here! 🙂
People waiting for the Wiesn to open at noon. At the Wiener Wiesn-Fest you can quench your thirst for beer and see people dressed up in Tracht, it’s basically Vienna’s own Oktoberfest. It keeps getting bigger every year, so I guess it’s here to stay. 🙂
