Today I’m taking you on a little walk through Vienna…
A beautifully lit window that invites you to stay and take in every little detail.
The K.K. Hofzuckerbäckerei Demel in Vienna is famous for their creative window displays. To my boys delight right now they have a Kasperltheater (puppet theatre) entirely made of sugar.
A mirror shop – that is just asking for such a photo… 🙂
I love the many small side streets of courtyards of Vienna. If you have to chance to see the movie Before Sunrise by Richard Linklater starring Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawkes, do it. It is set entirely in Vienna and has some beautiful views of the city (and it is a very lovely romantic movie as well!)
Have a great day! x
I can see you in the mirror, a flash of beauty.
Aww, thanks, Jordan! 🙂
How gorgeous! These photos are so beautiful!
And please keep up the series. I love the solitude and calm these posts impart. You keep taking me to other worlds which is brilliant as I have itchy feet but can’t come overseas till the second half of the year.
Thank you for your words of encouragement to keep up the series, I surely will since I enjoy making photos and I’m very glad people like them.
Oh and I now must watch Before Sunrise again! Adore that movie.
It’s lovely, isn’t it? 🙂
Great pictures! It is still amazing to me that I live in such a gorgeous city. Breathtaking every day I leave the house. Loved the movie Before Sunrise because of the views of Vienna. Thank you for inspiring me.
Looking at Vienna through the eyes of others, has me appreciating its beUty so much more. I tend to take the familiar for granted and ignore it…
I just love these snapshots of your beautiful city. I have recently recorded Before Sunrise and now I can’t wait to watch it.
Puppet theatres creep me out a little but I’m glad your boys love that one in the window display made of sugar – ingenious for sure!
Oh good, I hope you will enjoy the movie!
Puppet theatres are somewhat creepy, but not this one. 😉
Lovely shop displays!
They are! I could spend hours in those old shops, so many hidden treasures to look at.
First and last picture….STUNNING!!!
Please keep up this series as I am immensely enjoying it!
Thank you, brie! That made my day! 🙂
What lovely pictures and I adore these little insights! I must dust off my Before Sunrise DVD, I love that film, wasn’t quite as enamoured with Before Sunset mind…
Same here. Before Sunset just didn’t work as well (just like in real life: you can’t always recapture the magic…) 😉
Totally agree. Before Sunrise is an exquisite gem, though.
Oh, just beautiful. Thanks for this lovely series.
Thanks so much, ringthing!
Oh gosh … me wants to go to Vienna badly!!! 🙂
Before Sunset is one of my favorite films, and your photos confirm for me just how gorgeous your city is. It’s somehow more real when you see photos from someone who lives there.
Of course, your mirror photo reminds me of exactly why I really want to go to Vienna: to meet the beauty at the heart of all that beauty! Ah, hopefully someday…
I hope you will come some day!
I really enjoy discovering my hometown anew as an “exotic locale” as it is for many of my readers (the majority is from the US).
Oh, Suz, we’d have a great time!
These are beautiful. I do love this series and hope you continue to post your photos. We were planning a trip to Vienna in May, but now my daughter applied for a summer internship in NYC, so we may postpone the trip ’til December.
Really? That’s great! Maybe you want to meet for a cup of tea? Let me know when you visit!
I would love to meet you in person for a cup of tea or coffee. I will let you know when we have finalized plans.
Love it! Keep ’em coming 🙂
Will do. 😉
Love the puppets with bodies composed of what look like bagel quoits! One of my favourite sights in Vienna is the waxwork man in Cafe Central. Like having free entrance to Madame Tussauds with your Sachertorte.
The puppets’ bodies are made of Faschingskrapfen. 🙂
I will be in Café Central on Monday with Portia!
Give my best to Herr Wachs!
