I spent a weekend in Vienna, with countless tips and suggestions from Cornelia and Volker. Unfortunately the weather was not particularly good, but the trip was good nonetheless.
|Stephansdom in Stephansplatz. The center of Vienna.|
Mozart's wedding and funeral were here.
|Inside the cathedral.|
|Along the Graben - a major street in Vienna.|
|The Rathaus (city hall) as seen from the Volksgarten.|
|Hofburg. The former imperial residence.|
|In the Volksgarten, I believe.|
|It rained quite heavily, so this was taken|
from the overhang in front of the parliament
|A very wet statue of Karl Renner,|
an Austrian politician.
|Also the Rathaus.|
|A pretty church near the Rathaus.|
|Look what I found! Hansen Street!|
|In Museums Quartier. There are all these big colorful things|
that you can lie on and drink coffee on and such. Unfortunately
it had just rained, so I didn't get to hang out much there.
|I went in the Leopold Museum, which has a very large Schiele collection.|
|I particularly like the middle one.|
|There was an awesome photography exhibit.|
|The courtyard in the Museums Quartier.|
|Mozart lived here for twelve years. I|
believe his apartment was on the first floor
(American second floor).
|The cathedral has a very pretty roof.|
|The Albertina. I also went here. They have Dürer's Young Hare.|
|Fountain next to the Opera House.|
|Oper. The Opera House.|
|The Natural History Museum, as seen from the Art History Museum.|
|The Art History Museum, as seen from the Natural History Museum.|
|Me, near a Mozart memorial, taken by a random couple who'd|
asked me to take their photo.
|Schloß Schönbrunn. It was really expensive to go inside, but|
I enjoyed wandering around the extensive gardens.
|The Gloriette - in the garden of Schloß Schönbrunn.|
|The Gloriette is way up on a hill, so there are really nice views.|
|Statue on a bridge.|
|One of my favourite things was the|
Hundertwasser Haus - the Kunsthaus Wien.
The idea is that nothing is quite the same.
And there are plants on the roof, and trees
growing out the windows.
|There were four floors with paintings,|
photos, stamps, etc. by Hundertwasser.
|The Riesenrad - Vienna's famous ferris wheel.|
