Seen from Reichsbrücke today.
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. 🙂
Yesterday I made the most of the awesome weather and checked out one of the Stadtwanderwege that I so far have neglected.
Starting and ending in Stammersdorf, it has always seemed so far away. But the streets in this part of town are super cute.

There was some uphill walking, but less than the Kahlenberg walk. Wiews were found anyway. 🙂
The walk took me about 2 hours and 50 minutes at a leisurely pace. It’s approximately 10 kilometres.
It felt great to get out of the noisy city for a while. I’m not often out here in the north east, so there were new things to see for me.
And the downhill from the top was not very steep, at least not in many places.
I would definitely recommend this for a getaway on a nice day like yesterday. 🙂
Man I’m sick of this weather. It’s not even real weather, it’s just waiting to become weather. So what does one do? Screw it, go for a walk anyway!
So here are two pictures from a walk to Kahlenberg and down again today. Actually enjoyable, considering the company and the exercise. And the views. Which would have been better in any other weather. I correct myself: which would have been improved with the presence of weather.
Oh March…. You’re so much better in the southern hemisphere…
Yesterday I got dropped off here. I had no idea where I was. Turns out I was close to Niederhofstrasse on the u6, a place I can safely say that I have never been before.
It had the same sort of feel as Favoritenstrasse in the 10th district. I had to look around for a bit, just to find the entry to the ubahn. Tiny, unplanned afventure. 🙂
So, nowadays when the sun is really low and we have to go home after sunset, I’ve managed to take my camera out to capture some of the colour that we see every day. I got off the bus at Cobenzl to capture these shots. the view of Vienna from up there is just amazing.
This is the little castle (mini-castle) up at Cobenzl, with a fiery sky behind it. Click on the pictures to see them bigger!
