DÖBLING - 19th DistrictThis is my newest picture project.
Lots of people know the sights in Vienna's Inner City yet don't know that there are actually 23 districts in my city.
I am going to portray each and every one of the districts in this series to make you familiar with the Real World Vienna.
Döbling - another wealthy and extraordinarily green district. This time I had to cheat a little and take pictures from various strolls, as the weather was not as good as needed, if you like to really see how beautiful the area can be.
Area: 24.90 km²
Let's start in the south of the district:
Definitely the densest part of Döbling:
Waiting for the bus to take me to the west:
Like most of Vienna's outer districts, today's Döbling used to consist of several villages. One of those is Salmannsdorf. The rural atmosphere cannot be denied:
Very hilly surroundings and steep and narrow streets:
The former village of neustift am Walde, famous for its wine growing area:
Through the green towards Sievering:
Sometimes I was under the impression of being lost:
Church on Stefan-Esders-Platz:
A view across the cemetary of Grinzing towards the east and the 20th district, way down in the Danube valley:
Grinzing, famous vinery town:
Moving east, which means downhill and towards civilization:
Many rich people round here:
The tracks of the suburban trains (S45 line):
The beautiful Japanese gardens:
The view across Hohe-Warte-Stadion towards Donaucity cluster:
The stadium itself, home to Vienna FC (name in German, as well), Austria's oldest football club:
The mother of all commieblocks, the Karl-Marx-Hof:
Now, this time I had to cheat a little and include pictures of hiking tours from last autumn to make you appreciate the light and view from the hills and woods in the north of Döbling:
Bear in mind that we're still well within the city limits!
Excellent wine growing inside a city of 1.6 million inhabitants. Not so common.
Looking towards the northeast and the plains:
The city keeps growing:
Wine festival last October:
Towards the city center:
The view from Leopoldsberg, which some claim is the easternmost summit of the Alps.
...and yet again:
The new platform on Kahlenberg:
We're done again! Please comment! :banana:
