It’s the very last of the days when you can sit outside and lounge on a chair in this funky little street in the 6th by Haus des Meeres. I really enjoy the vibe here in summer. It’s also got one of the very few Vegan restaurants that I know of in Vienna. I’ll miss outdoor seating… Use it while you still can!!
According to Wikipedia:
The Fillgraderstiege is a staircase in the sixth district of Vienna, Mariahilf. It was built from 1905 to 1907 and designed by Max Hegele, a student of Victor Luntz and Carl Hasenauer, in an Art Nouveau style to connect the two streets, Fillgradergasse and Theobaldgasse.
The stairs were blocked off in 1981, having been worn down for almost 80 years, and were then repaired between 1982 and 1984, in the process of which a café and art gallery were added in a previously unused inner room behind the stairs, both of which opened on the 1 August 1985.
The Fillgraderstiege staircase was named the fourth most beautiful steps in Europe in a 2004 poll of European art professors. Well. Whaddyaknow.
Today was the day of the pride parade. And where was Tina? Off stressing, preparing for the big trip, having lunch.. working.. in short: Everywhere but the parade which I wanted to take a picture of!! So, I happened to pass the gay and lesbian house today, and I thought maybe that’s a good replacement. After all, the gay and lesbian house is there all year long, whereas the parade is there only today… so … ahem. WELL anyway. I present to you: The lesbian and gay house on Pilgramgasse. Enjoy, 😀
This dude was sitting on Mariahilfer today, reading and probably waiting for someone to hail a ride. Pretty cool concept, and I’m also really amazed that they are out and about when the snow is thick like it has been this week! The company is called Faxi, and they’re the more sustainable option if you need a ride from door to door.
