Weekend in Vienna

We took the train to Vienna, Austria on Friday morning and stayed there until Sunday. We got lucky since it only rained lightly and for a short time. It got dark very quickly, around 4 PM, so I didn't take a lot of pictures in daylight. I visited Vienna in 1997, but this was the first time there for my family. There are simply too many amazing sights, too many photos, so I'll just give a small sample.

The Rathaus, or City Hall

There were beautiful lights all over the center over town

  1. The Moon over the Cathedral looks amazing. I'd love to go to Vienna...

  2. oh. my. goodness.
    the lights over the town... just... wow.

  3. Those lights are amazing! Magical.

    I'm going to London and Edinburgh in the spring, but after that I'm immediately going to start saving up for a trip to Switzerland and Austria before I die.

  4. I do like the German word for town hall: Rat Haus. Appropriate.

  5. Vienna looks beautiful. How lucky you are to be able to visit so easily. Coming from the west coast of Canada, it's a lo-o-o-n-g flight over a lot of water to get to Europe.

    Thanks for sharing the photos!
