The other day I had to wake up very early to get to Schönbrunn to take some pictures before it got crowded by people. After the work was done, I took some time for myself and had a rest and of course breakfast at Landtmann’s Jausen Station Meierei in Schönbrunn. Everytime I visit Schönbrunn, I always have a break for a cup of tea or something. If not in Café Gloriette, then at Landtmann’s Jausen Station Meierei.
As you can tell from the photos, I always take pleasure of snapping pictures of everything cute around me for The Viennese Girl blog. This cafe with all those colorful chairs and tables, situated in an idyllic spot and a bit difficult for tourists to find, was cute enough for me to make me want to take some photographs of it. ♥

The more it’s getting warmer, the more I spend time sitting outside, somewhere in the center of Vienna, doing some people watching for hours, often forgetting that how much time has passed and other things, more important things must be done than watching people passing by for so long. The more it’s getting warmer, the more I feel the need to spend some time on a beautiful terrace with a bunch of good friends sipping wine, or even better, summer cocktails. Cafe bloom is the cafe bar of the Hotel LAMÉE and it has a beautiful terrace with view of the Viennese roofs of the first district and the cathedral Stephansdom of Vienna. Take the lift and go to the ninth floor and I will be happy if you are going to like it like I do. ♥

Beautiful Vienna

There was a girl on Instagram who recommended me to go and visit that place behind the Ubahn metro line U3 Schlachthausgasse. You see, I am not used to hang out around this area, so this is how I discovered that place. Vienna continues to surprise me pleasantly although I should admit that the architecture of the houses left and right to that street was not exaclty to my liking and it was a little photography challenge to snap the blossoming trees while avoiding the buildings.

When I was taking those pictures, initially I had no intention to upload them on The Viennese Girl blog but then I gave it a second thought and felt the need to share them here with you all.

The fairy tale scenery that you see in the photos above only lasted for about two weeks. It’s like all the beautiful things in life that don’t last that long. ♥

I love Volksgarten Pavillon in Vienna for two personal reasons: first it reminds me of Samos, and second, because this is the place where my best friend in Vienna and I used to catch up during the summer. And yes finally the weather is warm again in Vienna, and we can spend some time together sitting outside here. The decoration is a little bit strange. By saying strange I mean that it has a touch of vintage and it seems a bit untended, it’s not really a fancy place but it evokes a certain summer mood, summer feeling and a lot of carefreeness. Although it is located in the center of Vienna, near to Hofburg, it seems that it’s not discovered by tourists yet but after this post I don’t know… 🙂 ♥

I have been longing for a stroll at Lainzer Tiergarten and visit at Hermesvilla for many months now. But it wasn’t possible because Hermesvilla was closed during the winter and reopened its doors on 28 March 2015.

On one hand, I wonder how come I haven’t visited Hermesvilla not even once in the past 4 years I’ve been living in Vienna, but on the other hand, I am glad there are still new things to see and do in the Austrian capital. If you plan to visit Hermesvilla, just remember that the entrance is free every first Sunday of each month.

Sisi used to live in Hermesvilla, therefore you can see the interior and some furniture, but what I liked the most was the charming stairs and beautiful black and white checkerboard floor.

To sum it up, on this blog post there are some pictures of Hermesvilla, its surroundings, and the cafe restaurant on the ground floor. I didn’t take many pictures of Hermesvilla because it was under construction. But what a romantic place for a stroll, right?

I was around the 3rd district in Vienna and I was freaking out because of the cold. Actually, it was a bit of my fault because I had a spring outfit on me. As I was walking desperately, Daniel Hotel appeared in front of me like a green oasis of warmth in the midst of a cold city. I didn’t give it a second thought and stepped in. I have to document this and write down that there was a fireplace on and it was 1st of April. I found a table and ordered a yummy cheeseburger with lemonade and as dessert a delicious cake from the display window to sweeten up and brighten my day.

As you can tell from the pictures, the decoration inside Daniel Hotel Vienna is modern with plenty of clever details and the waiter was very kind and friendly that he let me take some pictures for The Viennese Girl blog. If the weather were better, I would have done a walk to Belvedere gardens that are right next to the Daniel Hotel Vienna. Besides, you don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy a meal at the Daniel Bakery on the ground floor. Breakfast is served during the week from 06.30 am to 10.00 am and on weekends from 06.30 am to 12.00 am. More info on their website.

The story goes like this. We were sitting hungry in our favorite French bistro downtown Vienna. Le Bol was busy and noisy but we enjoyed our breakfast. After we were done with our breakfast and happy, Elena (the girl of the photos above) asked me if I wanted to accompany her to the shop, next to Le Bol, which has eyeglasses and I asked her to go to that magical street with the blossoming trees so we can take photos. We did both. First we went to the eyeglasses shop and then, we took the metro line U4 from Karlsplatz to Pilgramgasse (where I used to have an aparment once) and went to the cherry blossom trees. And this is what happened. No special make up and no hair dresser, we had a spontaneous photoshooting. So, this is my friend Elena in front of my camera. Elena doesn’t model in her life; she posed only for me. It’s safe to say that my friends are beautiful 🙂 As for me, one day I hope, I will be shooting for Dior #bigdreams :)) ♥

When Tony asks you to let him take some pictures of you, you simply cannot say no, even if you don’t have any make up on your face, even if you don’t have that special outfit on you. Strangely enough, I feel comfortable going around the city and being photographed without wearing lots of makeup in order to look beautiful. He gave me chocolate and we had a relaxed stroll downtown Vienna talking mainly about our favorite subject: photography! Those pictures were taken in Graben, one of the most famous streets in Vienna’s first district, and its surroundings. I really had a nice time.♥

I am sure you know that restaurant in Vienna. Who doesn’t? Neni am Naschmarkt is that cool restaurant where I am heading to everytime I visit Naschmarkt, and it’s definitely my last stop after strolling around, especially in the summer, and love sitting at the tables outside doing some people watching. I need a bit of luck, though, to find a free table outside, or on the ground floor because I don’t like being seated on the second floor (you see, it’s also very dark for the photos). Nevertheless, you have to visit that place too if you are a tourist in Vienna for some days. Just visit Naschmarkt and stop by at Neni restaurant to try the chocolate soufflé, Caesar’s salad, meatballs as well and maybe falafel, or whatever you are craving.♥
