Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 2


I love the warm colours.




And I love facades like this:




A very special shop window (5 impressions):







Some nice birds for you, Jane. ;-)
I expecially like the little owl.










We would not call this backyard a beauty, don't we? ;-)
But it has a very strong atmosphere and will look better in the warm season
when the trees are green and birds are singing...

Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 3

Such houses bring cosy atmosphere:




All about orange... ;-)
(3 impressions)










Here I like the modern one in red and white -
it brings colour into the grey...




Flower Power! ;-)
Many young (and some older ;-) people use the bike in Josefstadt.




This building has several backyards:




Typically Vienna.
In the "Trafik" you get cigarettes, newspapers and also your tickets for the tram.



More later!

Thank you very much, Benonie, Jane and Leongname!

@Jane: Yes, civilized - with a few exceptions. ;-)

@Leongname: More arrogant than melancholic I think.
When you stand in front of him he seems to say:
"Come on, slave, manicure my nails!" ;-)

The Folklore Museum
The old palais needs renovation, but money lacks, I think...




The enchanting backyard of the Folklore Museum which is in direct
neighbourhood to Schönbornpark:




Eye-catcher




Impressive buildings round Schönbornpark
(3 pics):










In Josefstadt there are many antique-stores:



Continued tomorrow.
I wish a good night!

Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 5


This set of pics is about the church "Piaristenkirche"
(also: "Maria Treu")

Situated in the centre of the district, for me it's like the heart of it.







One of the churchdoors (detail)




Figures around the column of St. Mary:







Beside the church there is a school:




Picturesque decay on the backside of the Church:

The most picturesque is quite often that which presents an element of decay or faded glory.

Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 6


The next three pics are taken in the neighbourhood of Piaristenkirche:










We have reached the main and central street of Josefstadt,
Josefstädter Street. This is an old pharmacy ("Lion's Pharmacy"):




From Josefstädter Street you can see St. Stephans Cathedral.
The first district is the eastern neighbour district of Josefstadt.




If sometimes tourists come to Josefstadt, then mostly because of this theatre: "Theater in der Josefstadt"




Enough beautiful doors in the district for a special picture book...



View in one of the many nice shop windows on Josefstädter Street:

Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 7


@Jane: Vienna, or Austria on it's whole, has a lot of "lost glory". ;-)
Think of the mighty Habsburg empire which we once were the
"crown" of, and the little country in EU which we are now...
In every inhabitant of Vienna I think there is a little relict of feeling like
we are "centre of the world". But we are not so important any more. ;-)


Next pics are taken in Strozzigasse:




I think there is hardly a part of Vienna where you can't find the lettering
"Puber" on doors and walls. Puber is an guy from Swiss who covered
Vienna with his name. ;-)













Back on Josefstädter Street.
Josefstadt - a district with much heart. ;-)





Two tramlines cross the 8th district: No. 2 and No. 5




Here the view goes to Gürtel which is the borderline between Josefstadt
and the 16th district in the west:

Haha, when I was small, there was a guy who put his tag 'Evil' on every wall or bridge in Utrecht (the Netherlands). I think he just came from Utrecht though...

It's funny that someone came from all the way from Switzerland to do this in Vienna. 'Puber' means 'adolescent' in Dutch, which I think is quite befitting

(on another note, there's also a graffiti artist who's been painting gnomes on transformer houses in the Utrecht region for some years now , and I think most people appreciate them because they're funny)

Anyway, nice pictures and neighbourhoods, Yansa

Of course, you are right! ;-) It's "Pubertät" in German, "phase of adolescence".
To come all the way from Switzerland and cover Vienna with
one's littering nearly is a crazy love declaration. ;-)
He was sentenced to jail for it - he simply exaggerated his "work".

I like good graffiti, but am not amused to see anyone's childish doodle
on historical properties.


Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 8


As talking about jails... We have an important courtyard in the 8th district,
the "Landesgericht für Strafsachen". Ironically in Landesgericht Street
I found this lovely Scene ;-):




We leave the criminal theme behind and come back to worthy Josefstadt. ;-)

This is the nice Neudegger Street:







Our small streets can be very romantic:







From all prominent inhabitants of Josefstadt I want to mention the actor
Oskar Werner. This is the house he lived in.
People who are my age (in their Fifties) probably will remember the in
his younger years very handsome man and outstanding actor.
Let me mention the film "Ship of Fools" with Simone Signoret -
that deeply impressed me as a young woman. ;-)




Skilful balcony on the house of the locksmith guild:




Street of the locksmiths:

Portrait of my home district - Josefstadt Part 9





The house of the baker's guild
(my father was a baker ;-)




In this yard we find something precious: a column from the era of Gothic.
Unfortunately we don't have many Gothic relics in Vienna.







On the other side of the yard also a fine building:




The Gothic column again:




But also signs of other religions can be found in the streets of Josefstadt ;-)




Green door and postman's bag

Josefstadt shop details ;-)







Nice Bodega entrance:




LOL




This once was Vienna's main library - today a student's home and music school:




Selfie in a lamp ;-)




Back again on Josefstädter Street:




This extraordinary columns can be found on Alser Street:




Will be continued later!
