Viticultural Decorations

The decorations of this doorway are clearly inspired by the viticulture. No wonder, it's located in Stammersdorf, one of the more than 20 viticultural areas of Vienna.

Pink Flowers & Autumnal Tree

I guess one day I will have taken a picture of every possible photo motif along the Old Danube... Last Sunday my favourite house (on the left side) with its flowers and the autumnal tree caught my eyes. Please click here for another photo of the white house.

Quiet Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday was one of those cloudy and misty autumn days that makes you want to just stay at home. I conquered my weaker self and did another walk along the Old Danube

A Visit to the Cemetery

Yesterday was All Saints' Day. On this day it is an Austrian tradition to go to the cemetery, decorate the graves of the deceased loved ones with flowers and light the candles.

November Theme Day: Friend

It's good to take a walk with a friend while chatting away.... Later on I saw them sitting on a bench and still talking...

Happy Halloween!

Austrians started to celebrate Halloween in the 1990s, and since then it became rather popular. It's all about business, I guess. Nowadays there are a lot of Halloween parties for adults and the children do trick or treat.

Holiday Walk

Last Friday, Austria's National Day, I took an extensive walk in Kurpark Oberlaa. On my way there I remembered that last year I also spent the afternoon in this park. I'm such a terrible creature of habit!

How Many Times...

I don't know how many times I have already walked down this alley along the Old Danube... That's how I prefer it: nearly empty... (I'm not a big fan of crowded places).

Waiting for the Sun

Desk chairs waiting for the sun and clients - last Saturday, when the weather started to get cloudy...

Flower Sculptures

These huge flower sculptures by German sculptor and communications designer Jacques Tilly were a cheerful sight during my Sunday afternoon walk along the Danube Canal.

Cloudy Day

During the past few weeks we were spoilt with sunny and for the season rather warm weather, but yesterday the temperature dropped and the sky was cloudy. The boats on the Old Danube waited in vain for clients...

Old & New

Sometimes old and modern architecture fit together quite well... In this case I'm not sure. What do you think?

University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences

The main building of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences was erected in 1896 and is located in the 18th district. The "BOKU" as the Viennese call this univeristy (from its German name "Universität für Bodenkultur Wien") was founded in 1872 as an agricultural college. Today it is a modern, international University of Life Sciences where more than 10.000 students are enrolled.

Sunset Obsesssion #47

During summer I saw so many beautiful sunsets while riding my bicycle. I really miss to be outside at this time of day, therefore I enjoyed seeing the sun set last Friday even more.

Colours of Autumn

I don't like autumn but I have to admit that the different colours of these leaves are a beautiful sight. What a pity that they soon will fall off...

Missing The Long Summer Evenings

On Fridays I try to stop working earlier than the other days. Last Friday I took advantage of the beautiful weather to take a walk along the Old Danube. I miss the long summer evenings, currently the sun sets already shortly after 6 p.m. and I had to end my walk in the dark.

Terrace by The Water

The current temperatures don't feel like autumn but more like Indian summer. It's strange to see the changing colours in nature and to put on only a light jacket. The terraces of the cafés and restaurants are still well attended. I like this terrace by the water (Old Danube) a lot - although I've dined there only once.
