Vienna seen from above (17 pictures)

Hi,

in this series i'd like to show some pictures (by myself) from outside Vienna showing the city completely.

Nr.1 From a nice meadow ("Wiener Blick") in the southwesternmost part of Vienna (called "Lainzer Tiergarten") you have a stunning view over large parts of Vienna:



Nr.2 Another nice, calm place is the "Schafberg" on the border of 17/17th district in the outer western part of Vienna. Here, at about 390 m altitude, you see the skyline of "Wienerberg City"



Nr.3 Same location, but glimpse to the southwest: Slightly sloped terrain manifested by the Laaer Berg, called "Monte Laa" by citizens, culminating with about 250 m (90 m above the center of the city).



Nr.4 From Kahlenberg (19th district) there is a great look "downtown" to the UNO-City northeast of the Danube, here with the Danube Tower



Nr.5 and following ...originate from the "Jubiläumswarte", an observation tower in the 16th district which allows you a 360 ° view given favourable weather/wind conditions, i.e. winds have to blow from westerly directions. Otherwise, especially southeast, hazy air makes clear views impossible



Nr. 6 Thaliastraße, Koppstraße and Gablenzgasse (from left to right) as distinctive view axes.



Nr. 7 Mass housing project Alterlaa, with the Leithagebirge behind



Nr. 8 Arsenal tower and air-traffic control tower Schwechat (Vienna Airport)



Nr. 9 General Hospital Vienna (AKH) during sunset



Nr. 10 Vienna becomes also "different" due to the Vintage culture, especially in the northnorthwestern parts (Kahlenberg)



Nr.11 A big city?



Nr.12 Skyline is also impressive from "Palace Garden Schönbrunn"



Nr.13/14 A nice place is also a wine tavern in the upper 16th district (Ottakring) with a great view to the Wienerberg





Nr.15 From Bahnorama Tower in 10th district, just adjacent to the future main station of Vienna, you have a good view over most parts of the 10th district, here to the south



Nr.16 The Monte Laa exhibits a favourable view to the 21st and 22nd district
(UNO-City)



Nr.17 Skyline from 20th district (close to the Danube), with the flaktowers in the foreground, Votiv church right of the right tower and City Hall left of the right tower.



to preclude this series... an aerial picture during wintertime (December 2010)



Regards,

Felix
