  9. Yes a wide range of buildings. All I can find for the Aphrodite building are dates 1781-1848 but no named architect. Never had enjoyed coffee on to of the Haas Haus; still a target for a Wien summer trip.
    As ever, sharp & interesting images.

  11. You have (as always) capture beautiful details everywhere. And I have to say, those rooftop umbrellas must really be weighted down to keep them from blowing away up high like that, or else there is not much wind in Vienna....
