Vienna, Austria. . . . . . .


Vienna has the oldest ferris wheel in the world!  Weiner Reisenrad located in Prater Park 65m high, opened in 1897.

This is just a glimpse of lovely Vienna. This visit included visiting the Vienna Woods.
I'll share more when home again with more time and better Internet on board! 




This is 'social housing' in Vienna!!!
Talk about arty apartments - more later.

  3. Stunning pictures, Mary! I'm wondering if the Ferris wheel is still in operation?

    Off to look at previous posts.

  8. I showed the embroidery girls your blog posts yesterday and Rose said she would love to visit Vienna and waltz in one of the grand halls - a dream of a lifetime - did you and Bob waltz in Vienna dear Mary?!!
    I'm enjoying your river cruise through your eyes - and what sights those eyes have seen!
    Are you using your computer or iPad for these posts????

    1. Shane dear - no iPad for blogging, have never been able to manage it for blogging and posting photos. I use my MacBook Air all the time - I love it and will never be without it, especially when traveling.
      Thanks for your kind comments - I'm unable to do any commenting right now as the Internet is somewhat sporadic as we sail through these small German towns, plus sailing with 11 friends we are very busy! We're in Regensburg now, lovely town, but high water levels on the Danube have us unable to pass under some bridges today so we may have to be bussed to Nuremburg tomorrow for sightseeing etc.
      Hugs - Mary

  10. These scenes are fabulous! I won't ever be able to see them in person (too scary to travel to Europe by myself), so your photos are the next best thing!
