  1. Two sides of that square have such elegant buildings, Merisi. Will you share the other two sides with us? Cafe Hummel looks quite inviting. I hope that the coffee was fine.

    1. Yes, indeed, and sitting under the leafy tree canopy is a very nice way to have breakfast.

  9. What a task to single out from all of Vienna's beautiful buildings which one to use for this theme day. Love all three!

  10. I didn't spend as much time in Josefstadt as I would have liked, but it has been a few years since I visited. Another trip is well overdue :)

    What was the Commercial Academy originally built as? The sculpture on the facade would have been commissioned by the original owner.

    1. The school is indeed the original owner of the building in the first image:
      "Vienna Business School is the name of private educational institutions in Austria with a focus on business and economics, operated in Vienna and Mödling by the Fonds der Wiener Kaufmannschaft (Viennese Merchants Guild)."
