Beautiful European Capitals: See Vienna By Night

See Vienna By Night – As 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 last Christmas in Vienna, Austria 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, but this is how I felt when I spent Christmas in Vienna.

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.

Here are some of my favourite photos capturing the ever majestic Vienna by night.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. Beautiful exposure on the last shot. I like how ghostly the crowd looks like. It looks like its Christmas out there every night.

  4. 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.
