Love that blue raven in the Hernals Cemetery. And this is a great shot worth a second look (I loved that crazed little girl "driver" overhead):

Yes, Jane, Hernals, the 17th district, is interesting because it has many different
parts, poorer and richer ones, densely built ones and green parts. North of the
cemetery it's green, South of it, along Hernalser Hauptstrasse, densely built.
Maybe you remember the vineyard near the hospital I was born, which I once
showed here? That also is Hernals. I showed Hernalser Hauptstrasse a longer time
ago, but I think I also have more recent pics of it. Maybe I will have problems
to show them this year, because I visit so many Christmas Markets (lots of pics) ,
and I have prepared some sets under the title "Romantic Vienna".
But hopefully early next year I will show something of Hernals!

Nick, I also love that nice girl driver!
Thank you both for your kind comments, and thanks to all who liked!

Second part of...

Cemetery Hernals



A cemetery with many beautiful trees:



The neo-gothic arcades:



My favourite figure in the arcades:



Some more arcades impressions:

Here we can feel the coming November...



One last part still to follow, and then it's time for the first Christmas Markets.

Here comes the last part of...

Lovely hedera helix has conquered a grave:



The arcades seem endless...





Impressing black gravestones:



Here nature has made it's own little garden with wild plants (love such places):



Beautiful grave figures:





* The End *

In the following days it's time for some Christmas Market impressions!

Yes, that 'hanging Jesus' profile is wonderful!

I have a great fondness for cemeteries, and the colonnades and arches of that particular one are beautiful. Reminds me of a cemetery I visited in Rome during my last visit - near to the Basilica of St Lorenzo.

Dear yansa, the Cemetery Hernals is a must-be-seen place in Wien, because it has monuments and park on same place, and these atractions are a trade mark of your city. I do enjoy the stroll, including the raven

That's a lovely video about Vienna and it's locals, Roman - very interesting to watch!
Thank you so much for giving me/us the link!
I even saw some for me new buildings.
Still much to explore in my city.

Thank you all for visiting and liking, and special thanks for your kind comments,
dears Roman, Jane, Christos, Eduardo and Koloman!
Again thank you for the link to the fine video, Roman!

Time for the Christmas Markets!

Christmas Market
Spittelberg

This market in Neubau, the 7th district, is located in small streets with old buildings,
some of them from Biedermeier time. It's well known for handicraft.
I visited it very early at the opening day, so there wasn't everything ready.
Nevertheless, it was a nice first impression:



Cute detail - a birdhouse made of coconut:



"Waldviertler Feengeheimnis": Only the Waldviertel fairies...



... and this man from Lower Austria know the delicious ingredients:



I bought my Punsch at the stall to the left (near "Amerlinghaus"), it was
with cherries and Amaretto:



Very tasty, first a pleasant fruit acid, and the cherries at the bottom sweet.

Looking up often is rewarding:



First guests, like me



Interesting house detail:



All handmade:



This young craftswoman works with leather:





Two more sets following another day!

What a beautiful graveyard. So much peace and so much art make it truly special.
Thank you very much for the photos of the Christmas Market. I love it!

Christmas Market
Spittelberg

Colourful spot.
The two workers are looking in the beer direction.



Nice details:





Painting by artist Elena Mildner in a nearby gallery:



Beautiful view from the Spittelberg towards the first district:



Typically Spittelberg:



Inviting restaurants everywhere:



When you survive their bad smell in the first days/weeks, then with these stars
you have a real wonderful decoration for your home (not only for Christmas):



Nice spot for photography:





One part still to come, then other pics, then the next Christmas Market.
