It’s winter time in Vienna. Despite the cold and short daylight, I was walking around the city with my camera. Today I tried to capture some people inside the city in their natural situations. Come with me on a short trip through the city center of Vienna – a topic I would like to show more on the blog since it’s my home city right now.
Start at Schwedenplatz
Schwedenplatz I got to know very late, when I’ve been living in Vienna for about half a year already. It’s one of the spots where Vienna is as much Hamburg as it could be. In summer, a lot is going on around the water and in the ice cafés. But also in winter, it seems to be an active spot of Vienna.
Don’t forget to grab some snack over here as there are several different options to choose from. This lady over here is showing us how it works.
Continue to Stephansplatz
This spot was also crowded as usual. Unlikely the summer time, now there are fewer tourists wandering around so I actually got the chance to capture some of them taking pictures of the Steffl (the Viennese name for St. Stephen’s Cathedral).
And some more of people taking pictures. If you like the Cathedral as many Viennese people do, then donate for its preservation and restoration.
Finish your journey at Volkstheater/Museumsquartier
The area between Hofburg, the museums of natural history and art was very empty. Only around Volkstheater, I found them again: Nice, packed and sporty Viennese people on their way home, as I assumed.
The mood in the tram was great as always – nothing odd at five in the afternoon, tired people on their way home. Let me know what you would like to know about Vienna. I have some things in mind already, let me add whatever you prefer to hear and see. Take care!
