  5. Merisi, das Brandl war einmal mein Lieblingslokal. Bis der Herr Brandl (den ich sehr gut kannte und sehr mochte, vor allem auch sein Vogelbeerschnaps) tödlich verunglückt ist. Seitdem, das ist sicher über 10 Jahre her, war ich nicht mehr dort. Schön, dass es das Lokal noch gibt!

  8. @ SEAMUS:
    This is the beauty of Vienna, even if you have to go some place for a very mundane reason you may happen upon the loveliest scenes.

    @ BULGARIANA:
    You should go back there soon, it is such an enchanted place with great food to boot! I found it by chance, after a walk through the vineyards, and I have been back there often.

    @ CHARLES GRAMLICH:
    I agree! There's also a restaurant and cafe', a few steps up the hill, for those who arrive without a full picnic basket.

  14. Spring has certainly arrived in your world. I agree completely with the notion that food tastes better when eaten out doors. I can only imagine the picnic basket I'd pack to enjoy such a beautiful day in your photos. You've truly captured some photos that one can really feel a part of.

  16. Tis is a nice insight for me. I always think of Vienna in terms of canals and a historical city. It is nice to see the countryside as well
