It’s about that magical time in Vienna again. The Evenings, when the City turns into a fairy tale scenery, when you visit the Christmasmarkets. Holding a mug with hot mulled wine.
Having sweets from the various stalls
and wondering, if you should buy some neat Christmas decoration.
I had my first Christmas Magic Moment this season at the Belvedere Christmas Market.
Maybe a great combination would be to visit the Exhibition: Looking at Monet – The Great Impressionist and His Influence on Austrian Art (until Feb 8, 2015) in the Upper Belvedere (Daily 10 am – 6 pm) and then enjoy the illuminated palace.
Prinz Eugen-Straße 27
BTW, the Belvederemuseum has a quite nice Instagram Account: here
Have a peaceful wintertime!
It’s cold outside! What is better than a museums visit?
I have to recommend a comprehensive retrospective: former Art Director from Harpers Bazaar Lillian Bassman and her husband Paul Himmel. What a creative couple these two people must have been.
Enjoy some quick snapshots (or should I call them Teaser?) from my visit at the KunstHaus Wien on the opening day. If you have a major interest in fashion and or photography, you should not miss to enjoy at least 1 hour in the museum this winter.
This must be one of my all time favorite photographies of all times. The reincarnation of the Botticelli Venus by Paul Himmel:
Two Lives for Photography
Lillian Bassman & Paul Himmel
until 8 February 2015

A Short City Walk. A Walk in the Woods and sometimes quiet moments at the Cemetery.
