Some Stunning Photos Of Vienna By Night – Estimated reading time: 4 minutes
When summer fades away and we settle into fall, I find myself looking forward to spending yet another beautiful festive season in Europe. I long for the Christmas markets, the steaming hot cups of mulled wine, and the overall jolly spirit.
I spent a Christmas in Vienna once, and now believe that it’s one of the most incredibly beautiful cities on earth. Picture perfect actually. Like, “le sigh” levels of beauty. One of those places where you walk around awestruck taking in and absorbing everything around you. You feel lucky just to be there and know that will remember your experience in the city for the rest of your life.
I know it sounds so cheesy and cliché of me to write this (that’s what you get when a Canadian moves to Europe and everything seems to pretty to be believed), but this is how I felt when I spent Christmas in in the Austrian capital and snapped some photos of Vienna at night.
Some Stunning Photos Of Vienna Austria By Night
So just when I thought that Prague by night was a romantic (and very exquisite) delight, I walked through Vienna at night and fell in love with yet another European city. Really, I’m an abashed flirt. I love sooooo many cities in Europe now that it’s almost hard to call just one city one my favourite.
Walking through cities with my camera hand is another passion of mine whenever I travel. So strolling along the streets of Vienna by night with camera in hand was a great pleasure.
This collection highlights my favourite photos capturing the ever majestic Vienna by night.

Once again, I’m compelled to comment on your stunning photos, Cheryl. Amazing shots. I love the last one, in particular… The man staring at the camera in the lower-left corner adds so much character to the picture!
Thanks Tristan! I love taking the photos … although I’m wondering if the man is happy I was taking the picture!!?? 🙂
How lucky to spend Christmas in Vienna. Looks beautiful! Wonderful photos — the people in the last photo are very interesting.
Thank you so much! 🙂
Your photos are great and Vienna looks so elegant – I’m sure it could be the perfect place to spend the New Year’s Eve too.
Thank you! Vienna is truly beautiful. I wouldn’t mind spending NYE there at all.
Such beautiful night photos! I agree that Vienna is a city that must be seen after dark – gorgeous!
Beautiful exposure on the last shot. I like how ghostly the crowd looks like. It looks like its Christmas out there every night.
Thanks Andrea. I also have a crush on Budapest by night too but unfortunately didn’t get too many shots. Need to go back!!
Thank you so much Grace. Your comment’s very appreciated! 🙂
Incredible photos! I wish I had known something about photography when I visited Vienna several years ago.
Thanks so much! The city is much like a beautiful model posing for pictures. =)
The post brings up memories….I was there just for a day. Managed to go the Shonbrunn Castle from the centre on foot. It was good to get lost in the quarters and see how the locals live.
Thanks for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed the photos. I miss Vienna … hope to get back there sometime again soon.
