Vienna, Mozart orchestra and Schonbrunn Palace

IMG_7994 copy

The interior design of Musikverein - Golden Hall. Watching a concert by the local orchestra is a must when one visits Vienna. Vienna is a classical music hub after all!

The hall was fully packed with people, or rather tourists! It’s a bit too touristy for me, but definitely well worth the money.

Gentlemen with Wigs and leggings. What a sight!

Everyone’s well dressed for the occasion. Look at the happy faces :) We even made some friends there. Had a good chat with a lovely family from the US.

The garden of Schloss Belvedere

Schloss Schonbrunn. Schloss means castles in the German language. This was the summer residence for the Imperial family.

The Austrians built a magnificent fountain and a great arch on the hill top overlooking the garden.

Perseus with the head of Medusa. Watch Clash of the Titans and you’ll see what I meant. Avoid looking at the eyes of the Medusa- it will STONE you! LOL. muahaha. I love greek mythology.

The only thing in focus is the “horse-driver”. Fetish camera.

The Hundertwasser House. It significantly stood out among the grey and normal big city buildings. It’s a colorful, leafy, fairytale castle!

IMG_8199 copy

The Austrians even specifically design their waste combustion building. How bizarre is that!

IMG_8204 copy

The national opera house of Vienna. The Phantom of the Opera~~ opps. that’s in Paris.


They even placed an owl on the exterior of its university building, strange people strange place. What’s even stranger is that they put a fake Johann Strauss statue to cover for the real one when the real one is under renovation. And they made Strauss second to us. We are the champions!

The famous Mozart statue

With treble clef made of yellow flowers!

The food in Vienna is… uhh, not too bad. But the drinks, see below, is SPECIAL!


The one of the left is an Austrian soft drink, and the one on the right, chili beer! It’s uniquely spicy, worth a try! Parliament building with Athena statue.


Karlskirchethe: finest of Vienna’s baroque churches. We wrote signatures with iPhones, marking the end of a wonderful visit to Vienna. Good bye Vienna~

The end of Vienna
