The main focus of this excursion is Vienna's highrise district - Donaucity.
Instead of the standard tourist shots, I tried to capture some of the lesser known angles.

I also explored parts of the adjacent Kaisermühlen neighborhood, a typical working class area. Though I wonder how much it still lives up to its cliche, nowadays.


The approach on bicycle:

Crossing the Danube in the early morning light I catch the first glimpse of Vienna's Donaucity:

Let's explore adjacent Kaisermühlen, a very small neighborhood bordering Donaucity. From luxury condos to public housing, historic facades to bland commieblocks, idyllic lakes and beaches to busy urban expressways, it's all there. Even St Louis' Webster University has a campus right in the heart of the neiborhood.
