With all those flowers and trees blooming around me it was impossible not to take some pictures of Vienna in April. I was thinking all the time that spring in Vienna with all those cherry blossom trees and all kinds of flowers is actually a very good reason for foreigners to visit the city.
But if you come to Vienna in April for the flowers, which by the way also smell damn good, you have to know where to find them. Since I have lived here for many years now, it wasn’t difficult for me to spot them.
The photos above were taken at Burggarten, Volksgarten and Stadtpark. They are to my eyes more like paintings than photos. It is like someone has drawn them. Similar photos (or paintings) from last year’s spring you can find here.
Once, I recall, they called me pastries photographer, now they will probably call me flower photographer, but in the reality what I really love taking photos of is this. Now I am leaving you for a couple of days. I am invited to paradise, also known as Greece, for a press trip. Bye bye Vienna.

As you can tell from the photos above, not so many people go for a walk in Stadtpark when it’s freezing cold outside. This time, on my walk in Stadtpark I encountered just an Asian tourist couple and few other persons. Of course, there were also the ducks and pigeons, that didn’t seem to be happy with that cold either. When in summer people lay down on the grass and you can hardly find a bench which is not occupied, in winter the scenery changes and on days like those we are going through this week, the biggest park in the center of Vienna turns into a wonderland and I absolutely enjoyed my leisurely walk and realized that the park is beautiful anytime of the year.
Extra tip: if you are around there, don’t forget to visit the restaurant Meierei im Stadtpark.

Some days ago, when the weather was still nice, some friends and I spent some hours in Stadtpark. We usually go to the park when the weather is warm (you see here in Vienna many activities depend on the weather) and we get that summer feeling that makes us discuss about summer holidays.
Stadtpark is one of my favorite parks in Vienna. But there are many other beautiful parks in Vienna such as Prater, Volksgarten and Burggarten.
