My Favourite Vienna Photos
This photo gallery collects some of the finest pieces of Viennese architecture and prominent landmark buildings, such as St. Stephen's Cathedral (Stephansdom), the Secession, Jugendstil houses designed by Otto Wagner, key buildings along the Ringstrasse, and a few of my favourites of the baroque period in Vienna. It is growing consistently as I add new pictures.
Our Imperial past has scattered Vienna with beautiful palaces of the Habsburgs and aristocratic families. Nowadays, many of them are used to house public administration, such as Trautson Palace (Minstiry of Justice) or the baroque palace used by the Higher Administrative Court (the former Bohemian Court Registry) on Judenplatz. You will see key palaces in this gallery: from the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) and Schonbrunn Palace to the Belvedere Vienna, the Liechtenstein Palace, the Augarten Palace to Kinski Palace.
This gallery includes Vienna pictures of our main opera houses and concert halls for classical and contemporary music: The Vienna Opera House, the Theater an der Wien, the Musikverein (home of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra), and the Konzerthaus. These classical venues are all landmarks themselves. I can highly recommend the Vienna Opera tour, which will show you places inside the Opera that are usually not accessible to opera attendees.
Many of our wineries have a unique local architecture, yellow painted with wooden green shutters and dark wood panelled top levels. Most of them have lovely inner courtyards with vine canopies and centuries-old trees where people would sit, sip their wine, have a snack and chat. Many of these wineries are located close to or right in the hilly vineyards of outer Vienna, and offer themselves great views of the city. Neighbourhoods such as Grinzing or Neustift am Walde have real village character, and it is hard to believe you are in Vienna.
Access the gallery on my page about wineries and you will see a taster of some of my local friend Babsi's and my favourite spots.
