Vienna in photographs

Sorry to bombard you with pictures of Vienna.  It's just more beautiful than words can describe - picts do a better job.  Everything is well manicured and so very greeeen.  parks everywhere. art everywhere. pedestrian/bikers galore.
 in one word - heavenly.  
Upper Belvedere

hapsburg rule






oh so bike friendly

love when cities have these rental bikes.  complete with a basket.  perfect

Mona ... with a beard and a gotee?

The Secession building
How cute are these horsies?

vianesse flowers
 
eggplant, cucumbers, sprouts, sand.  yummm

where we stayed:  The intercontinental.
cannot say enough good things about this hotel.
five golden stars (:
you're perfect. please do not change. 

Pfudl is traditional Vianesse food and mouth watering.
I couldn't stop raving about it.
in fact, i still cannot.



I am a total history nerd and Vienna is a perfect place to indulge that side of me.  
The hapsburg, napoleon, german occupation, all of the royalty, the art, the music, klimt (i saw The Kiss!) 
... 
perfection in a city.
