The World's Most Beautiful Cabbage
The Dome of the Secession Building

The Secession Building
Built in 1897 by Joseph Maria Olbrich

Its recently restored leafy gilded  dome  shines
like a jewel against the blue summer sky

"Krauthäupl" (Viennese for cabbage)
A local term of endearment for the gilded leafy dome of the Secession building.

  1. Yes, a very expensive cabbage but possibly my favourite building in Wien. In marvellous condition again, and your picture gleams.

  2. So nice, how Viennese people express their love and pride to things with belitteling terms like this one :-)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
