Hello from the most beautiful season in Vienna. Spring arrived and is here to stay.
Everyone is visiting the beautiful parks of the city. Whether it is Stadtpark (above), next to MAK – the Museum of Applied Arts, which happens to have the most amazing windows I could admire for hours, beside the art exhibited.
Burggarten next to the Albertina museum,
or a little bit outside the city center: Schoenbrunn Palace Gardens
Flower Power everywhere. What a joy to go outside and leave the car at home and take a walk through the city. That’s the time of the year, when I find little stores I never would find by driving the car to run errands. Places I almost forgot and new little gems hidden in districts behind big streets.

Every winter I can’t hide my happiness, when my favorite flowers pop up in the flower stores and there is no way that I would come home without a basket of Snow-roses.
After years of collecting and cherishing them in my garden, I have quite a few different beauties now. This is what really makes me happy: First thing in the morning, even before my first coffee, strolling through the garden and marvel at the first signs of Spring.
In german we call them Schneerose = Snow rose. I like the term, but Christmas rose is fine too, even if I never so a bloom in my garden during Christmastime. Enjoy the upcoming spring and go for a Short Walk. We are blessed to have so many parks in Vienna. This is the right weekend for a Spring walk, I promise!

So happy to be able to announce: Japanese fine dining ist back in town, and not just back, but better than ever. When I started to visit restaurants 20 years ago in Vienna, it was not that easy to find a stylish place with good food back then. But we were lucky to have two fine Japanese restaurants in the Inner City. Both closed. Many other nice places opened, but never a Japanese restaurant, where you could have a high quality dinner at a stylish place, yet quiet enough to be able to talk to each other. Maybe the reason, why we bought a Teppanyaki grill for our kitchen at home, but even if it is fun to cook on it, it never is the same like from a Japanese chef.
