Vienna - portrait of a city

In this thread I will show all the faces of Vienna. Today I´m going to start with some pictures I took this morning in the 6th, 7th, 14th and 15th district that show everyday life in the city apart from the tourist hotspots. As I will take a long journey for the next four weeks, this thread will be continued in May. All pictures are taken by me.

Great thread! Are several of the pics of Marienhilfer Strasse? I can see half of the street sign on one of them.

Thanks. Yes, some of the pictures show the Mariahilfer Straße - the inner Mariahilfer Straße, to be precise (its outer part ist much more run down).

I like street pictures like these very much. I have not yet been to Vienna so it's interesting to see street pictures. I imagine myself there.

You caught some typical street scenes - very nice! Are there any more pics to come?

Yes, much more. I am planning to portray every 23 districts of Vienna, but as I am not in Austria at the moment, I will not be able to continue sooner than in May.

Yes, at least I am living there for around 9 months in the year.

As I have returned to Vienna a few days ago, I am able to continue with my portrait of Vienna today. This time, I will show you a few pictures of Vienna´s 13th district Hietzing in the west of the city, a very wealthy and very beautiful part of Vienna. Together with Döbling, it is the favourite neighbourhood of Austria´s upper class.

Truly beautiful.

Also, aren't these pretty much all outside of the Ring Strasse? If so, the most beautiful part of the city is not depicted. It would be like showing the hips of a supermodel and not her ****** (i.e., the best part)!

Well, a beautiful ****** alone doesn´t make a beautiful woman

Thank you!

It is in a small, a bit hidden side street of the Hietzinger Hauptstraße, around 2 or 3 kilometers west of the subway station Hietzing. Although I am living not far away from Hietzing, it was the first time I saw this little jewel, too.

Yes, indeed. But I am planning to show every part of Vienna, especially the not so well known districts most tourists don´t get to see. 98% of Vienna´s population is living outside the inner city so that pictures of a few dozen famous tourist sights in the first district don´t give an authentic impression of what everyday life in Vienna is like. And I also think that most users already have seen the cathedral, the Hofburg, Schönbrunn etc. a hundred times so that it would have been a bit boring to show only sights almost everyone already knows. But as I want to portray every district, there will, of course, also be pictures of the first district.

But somehow I like your comparison :

Great! At the moment I'm living in vienna for a few months. The street scenes are very recognisable and I like them very much. Those upper-class neighbourhoods are new to me. I have to check that out
