For about 10 weeks I’ve been living in the first district, and prior to that I had only a vague idea of how confusing the streets here can be. It’s practically a maze. Getting to Kleines cafe from where I live on Fleischmarkt for example requires GPS walking if you’re not familiar with the area. What is nice about wandering around and potentially getting lost is the many cute alleys in the first. It’s like getting to know a whole new city. 🙂
So quiet and free of tourists. Edited with Instagram (eeek!)
This used to be Floriditas, but it recently changed its name and logo. It’s just off Kärntnerstrasse in the first district. I’ve never been in, but I have friends who love it and make their way there every week. Seems a decent place to shake loose 😉
Today and for the rest of the weekend, the canal is full of people drifting from one venue to the next at the Danube Canal festival. There are loads of live acts, people, performance art and so on. Definitely worth checking out if your itinerary is looking a bit bleak!
My friend showed me that the street lights at Schwedenplatz look like they have a Grim Reaper in them. Kinda cool! And it would be the right district for him to hang out in… lol
I finally got to editing this one. Shot on my way to an appointment. A bit different than a picture, but still a little snapshot of Vienna. Where things happen to be moving. It’s like Harry Potter 😀
Really wet weather! Kärntnerstrasse.
