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?

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.♥
