Just before landing at Vienna airport I had some good views over the city.

After an efficient railwaytrip directy from the airport to the central station and then 2 stations by subway I was allready closeby my hotel which was close to the Opera.

Booked a Motel One.


After dropping my stuff in the room I went out again, also because of the great weather during my visit.

Statues and an eagle at the Hofburg.

It was a pleasure for me to give you some tipps, Patrick, and I'm glad you
had a nice stay in Vienna! :eek:kay:


Thank you so much for sharing your pics! It's exciting to see the own city
through other people's eyes!
I never approached Vienna in a plane, so I very much enjoyed your pics taken
from above:
Very good shot of the Central Railway Station in pic 4!
Pic 5: The green parts of Prater, and the biggest football stadium of Austria,
the Ernst-Happel-Stadium. :)


Volksgarten is one of my favourite parks because of the wonderful roses
rondeau and we can see so many famous and beautiful buildings "looking"
into this park.



11.
Which was allready lovely.

I'm glad that you liked our City Hall so much! :)
The big neo-gothic building still astonishes me, though I've seen it a thousand times... ;)


Pic 19: Roosevelt Place has some great buildings, you show us one of the best.


I'm very excited what you will show us next! :) :cheers:

Patrick, again you did something that I have not done yet: Take the lift up
inside Karlskirche! :eek:kay:
You made great pics up there, both from the frescoes, but also views of the city.


This pic made me smile, because I for the first time realized where exactly
your hotel is. I'm sometimes sitting in the guest garden of "Cafe Museum",
which is in the neighbouring yellow building (left of the hotel). :)

Zoomed in.

The sculpture in the Karlskirche pond is by Henry Moore and one of the best in Vienna. :eek:kay: It's called "Hill Arches".
