Vienna, mirroring, and no "landmarks", please!
Vienna, mirroring, and no "landmarks", please!
It is quite hard to describe my city "in a nutshell" of one (or two at the most) shot(s): Probably the first thing that comes to my mind had I to do that in words for a friend is the term "variety". Vienna is a city that has lots of historic places and architecture of former times; landmarks were excluded as per rules anyhow, but there are also quite a number of interesting "non-landmark" pieces of earlier architecture, such as, for example, the hotel of the first half of the 20th century (see note). On the other hand, Vienna is a city that is modern, in architecture, as also in creation of public spaces that display living quality - as can be seen in the glass structure that acts as the mirror for my contribution (one of our latest architectural additions, not to be called a landmark either...) or, for the latter point, in (e. g.) the many varied fountains that crop up whereever possible. Vienna is a city that offers a lot of small "islands" of urban nature, green in the city, as well. Vienna is a city in which people like to live and spend their time - thus coming up with more and more zones of public space in which one can spend one's free hours (pedestrian zones, dine-out and hang-out areas, and more). Vienna is definitely the city of coffee-houses! Hmmm... Vienna has a lot of different kinds of buildings (mainly from the turn of the 19th century to recently erected ones) as well. And Vienna offers all that culture, above all music! [Which I could, unfortunately, not depict in my contribution of the week without having to add one or the other of "forbidden landmarks"...] Be welcome to my city and take a look! Contribution for "Active Assignment Weekly", for the week of August 7th to August 13th: Distinguishing Distinct Districts.
YOTOT(MC): Austria Center Vienna (panorama)
YOTOT(MC): Austria Center Vienna (panorama)
Here's another panorama of the Austria Center Vienna, the venue of this year's ECOC conference. The shots for this image were taken from the top of the TV tower in the neighboring Donaupark, on which I went up during one of the lunch breaks. Unfortunately, that day was crazy hazy, so everything further away than maybe half a kilometer only shows up as white noise. Since downtown was much farther away than that, the panoramas in that direction are not really that interesting... Technical note: stitched from 3 portrait shots, nothing fancy this time.

Think of Vienna and one thing should come to mind. Not music, although we will come to that later. Not the Boys Choir. Not waltzing. Not wiener schnitzel (invented here), not sacher torte (also invented here), nor filtered coffee (invented here and drunk by the tankerloads). Not even Lipizzaner Stallions. The one thing that epitomizes Vienna is: schlag.

Schlag, shortened from Schlagobers, is whipped cream. Desserts are traditionally served with it. Viennese coffee is light espresso topped with it. The white poufy dresses at the annual New Years Eve Ball, Austria's waltzing extravaganza, look like they are made of it. The Baroque and Rococo architecture is decadent and looks like it's embellished with it. Even the most famous Emperor, Franz Josef, sported a sweeping moustache and muttonchop sideburns that gave him the appearance of having dipped his face in it. This is a pristine city, precise and orderly, softened by the excess that a good dollop of whipped cream (literal and figurative) adds. Start your culturally caloric tour within the Ring Road, or Ringstrasse. Each section of the ring has a different name ending in 96 ring. This is helpful in orienting yourself and keeps you from going around in endless circles trying to find an address. Inside the ring is the historical center of Vienna and most prominently placed is the Hofburg, or Imperial Palace, home to so many museums and cultural venues that it's difficult to count. Most cities would be happy to have half of these venues, much less all of them in one grand location.

This is the seat of the Habsburg dynasty, one of the largest and most powerful ruling families of Europe (Marie-Antoinette, wife of Louis XVI and Queen of France was a Habsburg 96 she must have said 'let them eat cake, mit schlag!'). Started in the 1200's, the original castle was enlarged, expanded and elaborated on for the next 700 years. Had WWI not ended the Austrian monarchy, the Habsburgs would probably still be working on the palace today. Here you'll find the Imperial Apartments where Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Empress Elizabeth (nicknamed Sisi) spent their unhappy marriage; the Lipizzaner Stallions prance and parade in the ring at the Spanish Riding School in the center of the palace; and the Austrian National Library, an ornate repository of knowledge. The Wiener S'e4ngerknaben, or Vienna Boys Choir, perform Sunday Mass at the medieval chapel within the Hofburgh.

There are plenty of other sites and activities in the city: walks along the Prater, the museums surrounding Marie Theresien Platz, the gardens of the Rathaus Park, St Stephan 92's Cathedral, Karlskirche, the Belvedere Palaces-upper and lower, the Demel 96 cafe 9 extraodinaire, the Sigmund Freud House and the Clown Museum.

All of these sites can be easily found on our STREETWISE® Vienna Map and are listed in the complete index along with streets, hotels, metro stations, places of worship, places of interest, parks and plazas, and other museums and cultural sites.
