Viennese Escapes: Lake Neusiedl

Taking a Break
Sunday at the Beach
Lake Neusiedl
40 km South of Vienna

"Ideal wind conditions and a Mediterranean climate
make Lake Neusiedl a top-notch sailing,
surfing and kite-surfing ground
(Neusiedl am See website)


  1. I loved these beach photos! You captured it perfectly.

  2. I love the blue and white umbrella! Comfort seems to be the theme of the day!

  3. That second shot made me look twice -- it seemed that the sun was setting too near to the shore. But it was only a beach ball after all.

  4. you have beaches in Austria???? Woah!

  5. Have enjoyed catching up with your Vienna photos. The top one could be somewhere much further south ! :)

    The Retired one,
    thank you - that gentleman knows how to enjoy a good summer day! ;-)

    Sandi McBride,
    you are right,
    we are all looking for comfort in the shade during those long blessed days of August, aren't we? :-)

    Vicki Lane,
    I simply loved the sight of that couple!

    do we have beaches?
    Yes, Sir,
    too many to count!
    Even right in the city, sandy beaches, sailing to one's heart content, windsurfing, you ask, we got it! ;-)

    I agree! Even right in the city there are places where I have to remind myself that I am not in Rome, such is the mediterranean feel.

    Dear readers,

    I would like you to know that my comments are not being "moderated" because I feel I have to, but because I value each and every one of your comments and as far as I know, the moderation mode is the only way I can be sure I do not miss any of your comments!

    I started to "moderate" comments when some robot started putting dozens of comments on my blog, and none relating to its content but unwanted commerce. Only when I started moderating did I realize what a good tool it was to actually never ever lose any of your comments, even those on older posts.

    Therefore, I am holding on to "moderate", hoping you do not mind.

    With my very best wishes to all of you for a good start into a wonderful week,


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
