Dreaming of Vienna

Yesterday I spent a magical afternoon at the National Gallery of Victoria’s ‘Vienna: Art & Design’ exhibition. I may or may not have mentioned a thousand times that I spent a semester living in Vienna while studying at the University of Vienna 2010-2011. Subsequently, I have been in love with the city ever since.

I was a bit teary-eyed and nostalgic as I saw a planning sketch for one of Vienna’s above-ground train stations ‘Gumpendorferstrasse’ where my friend Claire and I would purchase kasekrainers (amazing sausages with cheese inside) on the way home at 4am. So below I present you with just a few of my favourite photos (it was hard, I had 1,397 to choose from!) from one of the greatest cities in the world.

Museums Quarter, ceiling at Schönbrunn Palace, Gloriette at Schönbrunn Palace, kasekrainers, Belvedere Palace, Wiener Riesenrad (featured on The First Man), Cafe Central, Cafe Central, Stephansdom, Wirtschaftsuniversität Ball at the Hofburg Palace, chandeliers at the Hofburg Palace, horse drawn carriage at the Hofburg, Cafe Sperl, Wiener Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel, Christmas Markets at the Rathaus
