Joy to the World
Christmastime in Vienna

Walking in the Snow
on Kohlmarkt
with the verdigris dome
of the Imperial Winter Palace
in the background


Can you find
Meinl's Moor?

  1. I really like this image -
    dusk was falling fast, it had begun to snow heavily,
    the Christmas street lights were already on, and there, this woman with the red dress, her joyful stride caught my eye. Joy to the world! ;-)

    If you click on the image, it enlarges quite a bit, a little thank you for you all who leave so often the gift of a kind comment here.

    Joy to you all,

  2. Hello,
    I have been following your blog for a little while now and thought I should at last comment.

    I love the pictures your post. This one is great too. I love who the womand with the umbrella is right in the middle of the picture. Was that a lucky coincidence or deliberate?

    Best wishes,

  3. And sorry for my bad spelling in the comment!

  4. Welcome, Elisabeth!
    The Woman in the Red Dress was a lucky coincidence.

  5. There is something so magical about this picture. I'm not exactly sure what it is...maybe the dusk coming on....the cascading twinkle lights creating the heavenly ceiling or the wonderful girl . Whatever it is I really do love it.
    Happy New Year Merisi.

  6. Dearest Merisi,
    I have been going up and down your posts for some time now. How beautiful! My family and myself have the best memories from our Christmas trip to Vienna in 2007. May I say, it is our reference for the perfect vacation. We spent three nights and feels like we stayed a month.
    Stopping by your blog and knowing that you care (...) fills me with joy and gratitude.
    So, dear Merisi, we all wish you a blessed 2011, with good health, a lot of happiness and love, and a joyful heart, open to God's many blessings and man's great works.
    With love,
    Irene and family
