HELLO FROM VIENNA



Greetings Dear Readers from beautiful Vienna.

The sun is shining and we are out and about, trying to cram a lifetime of memories into a few days:


Palaces and Princesses:



Fabulous Old Masters:

Pieter Brueghel 'The Hunters in the Snow'
and the artists of the Vienna Secession:


Gustav Klimt is everywhere -

of course we went to see 'The Kiss' at the Belvedere:


It is possible I may have succumbed to the allure of a cheap souvenir scarf reproduction...


St Stephen's Cathedral, with its amazing tiled roof






We have eaten Strudel, and Schnitzel...



Taken a carriage ride, and enjoyed a jolly Strauss and Mozart concert in a Palace...


Mozart lived here, in a third floor apartment for about three years.
Now it is another of the dozens of fascinating museums in the City Centre.


Off to Berlin tomorrow....

Take care xxxx

    1. Sadly we only have time for a few of the amazing museums Jenny. I do love the style and elegance and the thought of being where Beethoven and all the others trod!

  2. You are having a wonderful time in Vienna. Jess visited Vienna many years ago and really enjoyed herself. St Stephen's Cathedral is so historic.....and tall. The carriage ride sounds delightful, and those white horses are beauties. Love the little music sign on the grass. Be safe, and have fun in Berlin, Patricia.

    love, ~Sheri

  5. How lovely Patricia to hear from you in beautiful Vienna. I love the roof of St. Stephens Cathedral too, but the whole of Vienna is a feast for the eyes. Enjoy your next stop in Berlin, plenty more wonderful things for you to see and do there too.
