2018-07-14   VIENNA STATE OPERA

By | 2018-07-14T16:08:24+00:00 July 14th, 2018|Vienna|

The illumination of the Vienna State Opera (“Staatsoper”) is one of the top photo spots. The location is between the Kärntner Straße and the Opernring, that’s the ultimate city center. There you are near to the Volksgarten, the Museum of Natural History and the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Even the shopping mile Mariahilfer Straße is only some hundred meters away.

The photo shows a stairway up to more cellars in the Schlumberger cellar-exhibition in Vienna. There are dozens of vaults with millions of bricks. I recommend a visit during the summer months; it’s refreshingly cool inside.

Visiting the Museum of Natural History in Vienna (Naturhistorisches Museum Wien) brings you vast photo opportunities. The building and interiors are built like a castle, marble ornaments, and many artfully created sculptures, big arcs, and pillars.

2018-05-29   SILVER SHOP WINDOW IN VIENNA

By | 2018-05-28T21:31:49+00:00 May 29th, 2018|Vienna|

Though I don’t own any silver plates I like watching it through shop windows. Those artfully decorated accessories combined with the lightning gave a beautiful photo motive. I took that picture with my Google Pixel II XL which I sometimes use as a substitute for my mirrorless camera.

Keith Haring exhibition in the Albertina in Vienna. A good contrast to the expressionist’s paintings which are normally exhibited. The building is also a must-see, as shown here on a nightly shot.

By | 2018-05-14T19:53:23+00:00 May 15th, 2018|Vienna|

The Burggarten in Vienna is a park for chilling out on the lawn, driving with skateboards or having a good time with a simple walking session between high broadleafs which spend shadows during the afternoon heat. For a break, you can visit a lounge where you get cold Aperol Sprizz.

2018-05-11   SCHLUMBERGER CHAMPAGNE CELLARS

By | 2018-05-10T16:45:53+00:00 May 11th, 2018|Vienna|

Although I live very near, I never visited the wine and champagne cellars of Schlumberger champagne producer factory. A unique experience walking through the vaults, built from thousands of bricks. After the exhibition, you get a glass of champagne, which is included in the entry ticket.

2018-05-08   CAFE MUSEUM IN VIENNA

By | 2018-05-07T19:08:56+00:00 May 8th, 2018|Vienna|

Vienna is famous for its cafes which often represent old-fashioned stylings of the interiors. Wooden walls, seat covers soft as velvet, and tables with marble tabletops. The coffee is a matter of taste, I prefer the short and strong Italian espresso, there are only few coffee houses which offer this sort of coffee. A good tip is to look at the coffee machine, if they have an instant-coffee-machine, then avoid it.

2018-05-06   SWAROVKSI SHOP WINDOW

By | 2018-05-06T15:16:55+00:00 May 6th, 2018|Vienna|

Yesterday evening I was walking with my wife Karin in the first district city center of Vienna. First, we visited a rooftop bar with the hope, to get some cool city shots, but the view wasn’t exciting enough. Then we looked at the shop windows in the Kärnter Straße. We were impressed by the decorations of the Swarovski Crystal World shop, it gathered attention from all passengers, artfully decorated.

The Africa Days brought some cultural and culinary highlights. Many tents where clothing, masks, necklaces, and bongo-drums were offered. The food was refined with exotic spices and colorful sauces. In the background, you could hear rhythmic drum and bass music.
