Vienna at Night

I adored exploring Vienna in the evening. The city is just as beautiful at night than it is during the day. Here are some of the photos I took.

I did manage to do two activities during the evenings.

Wiener Prater

First, I visited the amusement park. When traveling, I always get distracted by the museums and beautiful sights that I sometimes forget to just have fun. That was why this was the perfect thing to do! At the best part? I took a ride on Prater Turm, the world’s highest chained carousal at 117 meters! How is it possible to be so afraid yet feel so free at the same time?

Hundertwasserhaus

As I’ve mentioned, I simply cannot stop looking at architecture. That was why visiting these buildings was one of the things I was the most excited to visit in Vienna. I clearly did not plan very well and ended up going too late in the evening to even see them properly. The next time I come to Vienna, I will make certain to take better pictures.

Vienna

This is not the first time I am visiting Vienna. In fact, I visited Vienna almost half a dozen times when I was younger. I used to love this city and always asked my parents to go there for a week or so during the summer. However, its been years since I’ve been back.

That is why I was so excited to visit Vienna again this past summer. This time around, I saw the city from a new light. I explored her castles. I strolled along her streets. I tasted her cakes. And I remembered what it was about Vienna that I loved so much as a little girl.

Here are a few places I recommend you visit:

Belvedere Museum 

Vienna is a city of art. And her best collection of art is at the Belvedere Museum. It is here that will you find the collection of Gustav Klimt’s gorgeous gold paintings. This place should be at the top of the list of any art lover or Vienna visitor. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take pictures of the paintings inside.

Schonbrunn Palace

This palace is the former imperial summer palace. It is easily Austria’s most beautiful. I, personally, adore the yellow color. It reminds me of the sun – very suitable for a summer palace. We had such a great time exploring the gardens!

Hofburg Palace

In retrospect, I sincerely regret not having enough time to go inside this one and see the lovely apartments of the royals. I only managed to admire the architecture from the outside. At least this gives me an excuse to come back to Vienna….again!

And finally…shopping!

Vienna is loaded with lovely boutiques both international and local for you to shop away. I personally have an adoration for menswear. And Vienna knows menswear like no other city in the world.

I leave you with a few more pics of other locations around the city that I managed to take snaps of…
