-> Judenplatz "was the center of Jewish life and the Viennese Jewish Community in the Middle Ages. It is located in the immediate proximity of Am Hof square, Schulhof, and Wipplingerstraße.
It exemplifies the long and eventful history of the city and the Jewish community focused on this place."
-> German poet Gotthold Ephraim
"was in Vienna in 1775/76, had an audience with Joseph II.,[17] and was therefore in a position to influence and shape the Viennese cultural climate. Lessing's "Ringparabel" in the drama "Nathan der Weise" is considered a key text of the Enlightenment and helped in the formulation of the idea of tolerance."

  2. I am not a big fan of cities, much preferring the tranquility of nature, but I am sure that of all cities I would feel most at home in Vienna, with its incredible connections to good music. And I am sure I would find a few birds in the parks also!

  3. I just love those city views. Excellent

  4. Lessing's statue particularly stands out. It looks like winter has lifted out of Vienna.
