View from the Upper Belvedere
On a stormy April afternoon
At the bottom of the gardens, the Lower Belvedere Palace,
the Inner City beyond, with the steeple of St. Stephen's cathedral,
and the hills and vineyards of the 19th District meeting the horizon

Lovely scene and a pretty sky! Beautiful images! Have a happy Friday and weekend ahead!ReplyDelete
The same Belvedere where the 'dame in gold' was hung all the years before it was returned to its heirs?ReplyDelete
Yes, Anne, that very same Belvedere.Delete
no matter how grey, that is a lovely daily walk.ReplyDelete
And the closest kaffeehaus is?
Best wishes for the weekend.
There's a kaffeehaus in the Upper Belvedere, the "Menagerie".Delete
The closest large one is the Schwarzenberg Cafe, at Schubertring.
Thank you for the good wishes and the best to you, too,
The garden looks fantastic. Love how you captured the skies.ReplyDelete
Merisi, these views are spellbinding (as the Sphinx is well aware.)ReplyDelete
I love the contrast of the orderly architectural perspective at ground level and the glorious open sky above.
