Webcam Wien. This is a live Wien webcam of some of Vienna Austria’s key sites. Use it to get a live impression of landmarks such as Rathaus Vienna and Ringstrasse boulevard. Check current weather conditions and festivals in front of City Hall.
What Does The Webcam Wien Show?
The Vienna webcam is installed on top of Burgtheater at Ringstrasse boulevard. First, you see the geometric flower beds and Theseus temple of Volksgarten. The column building left of Theseus temple in the back is Heldentor (Heroes Gate).
The two massive buildings with domes are the Museum of Fine Arts (Kunsthistorisches Museum) and the Museum of Natural History (Naturhistorisches Museum). What looks like a giant cake to the right of the second dome is one of the gigantic World War II defence towers (Flaktürme) in the sixth district of Mariahilf.
Between Heldentor and the Museums,Ringstrasseboulevard passes. It meanders around Volksgarten and then runs down between Volksgarten and the Austrian Parliament. In front of the Parliament you see an oval square and statue in the center. Focus well and you will distinguish three tiny black carriage sculptures on the roof of the Austrian Parliament, a Greek-style building.
More of the City Hall square’s park with its many trees gets into view. The enormous neogothic building is Vienna City Hall. ‘Your’ position on Burgtheater’s roof lets you look at two roof statues right in front. You may likely see either a festival, or works to mount or de-mount one, in the main square. There is rarely a time when nothing is going on there.
Before the camera snaps off, catch a glimpse of the Vienna Woods in its hills, and Votivkirche.
