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!
The choir supporting the Orchestra.
Interval. I love those music stands! Time for photoshoot
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 conductor, the soprano, and the male lead. 都是爱演的一族.
The end of the concert. It was a standing ovation!
Schloss Belvedere. A stunning palace.
A hybrid between a fish and a horse. A seahorse!
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.
Best photo of the year.
A plant in the Japanese garden. 姐姐妹妹站起来.
The greenhouse in Schloss Schonbrunn Gardens. With riceballs around it. Gosh I miss Melacca’s chicken rice balls.
No comment. banned. – written by Daniel. :(
The Hundertwasser House. It significantly stood out among the grey and normal big city buildings. It’s a colorful, leafy, fairytale castle!
The Austrians even specifically design their waste combustion building. How bizarre is that!
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~
