We went to Vienna with moderate expectations. While we wanted to go, we didn’t have the high exceptions someone has when visiting places like New York or Paris. Well, weren’t we in for a pleasant surprise! We loved it there (even if our stay was brief). We were lucky to be staying nice and close to the center of the city at the new Kempinski Hotel, which meant we could walk around the beautiful city and take in all the sites (and even stop off for a bite to eat).
There was plenty to see in Vienna. At every turn we found something else to admire, from buildings to parks to cobble-stoned roads. And lucky for you we took our camera with us! Here are some of our favorite shots of one of our new favorite cities.
Golden Statue overlooking the city
Parliament Building – Probably my favorite building in Vienna
Imperial Palace -Massive building which has a rich history of housing some of the most powerful people in European History
Hofburg Palace – Swarming with people during the day
Hofburg Palace – An even more beautiful site at night
Richard Wright building with City Hall in the distance
Same location as the above photo, but at night. Beautiful white building with City Hall sitting ominously in the background
I love the lighting on this photo
Statue in front of the Schloss Belvedere
Women statues holding up the Government Building
St Charles Church – You can climb the towers to get great views of the city
Vienna State Opera Building
Water Fountain found along our city walk. I did ask the pigeons to get out of the photo, but they didn’t listen!
Water fountain in the middle of the park located in the middle of the city
The colors in the gardens located in the park are incredible
