Mariahilfer Strasse
Summer in the City

Mariahilfer Strasse
Vienna newest pedestrian zone

Vienna's busiest shopping street
is now a tree-lined open-air mall

that cleverly combines the pleasures
of leisurely strolling, window shopping

or sitting in a sidewalk café,
watching the world go by

All of this - and more -
without a car whizzing by

  1. A really beautiful set of pictures Merisi, I love the first one..

  2. Ich bin gestern sehr entspannt in einem Straßencafe genau dort gesessen und habe die vorbeiflanierenden Menschenmassen betrachtet...
    das 1. Foto ist besonders schön

  3. Oh, I wish I could be there. That is a gorgeous pedestrian mall.
    The first shot looks like a postcard.
    What a way to spend the day.
    Hope your weekend is wonderful.

  4. What a beautiful place Merisi. Love the captures. Thank you

  5. I can repeat the Jim's words !
    I must visit this beautiful town!
    Have a good sunday Merisi !

  6. i am sure drivers aren't happy but i love pedestrian zones ...

    1. Well, they have plenty of alternative routes in Vienna and most people travel on the excellent public transport system anyway.

  7. I sure would love to stroll down those streets.
    The weather looks cooler than here at home.
    Today the temperature was 107F.
    Too hot and I hate to see what my electricity bill will be. The air conditioning unit has been going for 24 hours straight. I can't sleep when it's too hot. Ugh!

  8. Walking in Vienna is such a pleasure ..always a treat for the eyes and the tastebuds..loved just wandering from one side of the street to the other just enjoying everything :-)
