Vintage Roses and Silk

Wenn Mitte Juni meine Englischen Rosen zu blühen beginnen, fühle ich mich jedes Jahr wie eine kleine Prinzessin. Und einen Rosenbogen dieser Dimension hatte ich, ehrlich gesagt nie in Planung. es war ein weiter Weg zu diesem rosa Blumenmeer zwischen Bambus und Sandornbüschen.

#somewhereinHietzing: Monday Blues

Somewhere in Hietzing ... Travelsecrets and Lifestyle Stories on Windows of Vienna

Sometimes I forget, that not everyone is addicted to Smartphones and Instagram. Maybe it is a smart idea to post some of my favorite shots randomly here on the blog too. Did you know that you can easily browse through Instagram on your desktop too? Have a look at my gallery of neighborhood pics, which I post on a regular basis under my hashtag #hietzingnews: „#somewhereinHietzing: Monday Blues“ weiterlesen

Where to drink in Vienna: Kleinod Galerie Bar

Kleinod Bar Wien Singerstrasse

Just when I was up to read my last Emails before signing off, to enjoy my long awaited holiday week abroad, one of those long press informations caught my attention. Weird, cause it was a Cocktail-Bar, and I don’t do nightlife for a long time anymore. And then I knew it! This is the place, where I worked, during my short student-life, twice a week for about a year. What a place that was in the 80ies. Fun memories -and fortunately – only memories and no Instagram pics or such. What happened at the Galerie Bar stayed at the Galerie (this was the name of the Bar back then.) „Where to drink in Vienna: Kleinod Galerie Bar“ weiterlesen


Which Gelato in Vienna?


My favorite of my childhood was Zanoni. They still offer great ice-cream, but the place, even though it is so huge, it is so unbelievable packed with people in summer that you barely can breath. Vienna never had a lack of good ice-cream. Stores on every corner. Yet there opened so many new Gelaterias in the last years. Centuries it seemed to be an Italian domain and the red-white-green flag was kind of part of the interior. Suddenly there popped up Ice cream Stores and Bars with new concepts. First it was the colorful Frozen Yogurt hype. Good for me, as I like Yogurt most, but a good FroYo lives from the fresh and creative topics, which weren’t that fresh too often.  „Which Gelato in Vienna?“ weiterlesen

Art project Euroart MuseumsQuartier Wien

Artproject courtyard MuseumsQuartier Wien

The 60th Eurovision Songcontest 2015 is history. What remains, after a week (actually for the viennese residents half a year) of Building Bridges and thousands of tourists more than usual, attracted from the oldest and biggest Contest, are

Zero Points for the hosting country and a shiny winner from the always friendly country Sweden.

Congrats one more time! Heroes from Mans Zelmerlöw was one of my top 3 from the beginning, too. Not because the sound is my cup of tea (it isn’t), but because I like the lyrics and the positiv and friendly openminded attitude. In short: Building Bridges. That’s what the contest is about for me. Life is going back to normal. „Art project Euroart MuseumsQuartier Wien“ weiterlesen

Short Citywalk Vienna: Palais Ferstel Passage and Kunstforum


Whenever I have to run errands in the Freyung area, a short city walk between Hof – Kunstforum – Freyung – Ferstel Passage – Herrengasse is a Must. Having a coffee, buying some french stuff, like special salt for my salt collection (here) at the Épicerie fine & Bistrot Beaulieu or at Xocolat. „Short Citywalk Vienna: Palais Ferstel Passage and Kunstforum“ weiterlesen

The Café Dommayer.

Dommayer. Coffeebreak in Hietzing

Opened daily from 7AM to 10PM there are many opportunities you will find to enjoy your time here.

Dommayer. Coffeebreak in Hietzing

Be it a short break for a quick Espresso, a small Macaroon, which is called Laakrone here, or an extended breakfast with newspapers and magazines from all over the world. It is the viennese way to have all the news of the world for the price of a ‚cheap‘ cup of coffee. Different like in most cities: You can spend hours with just an small amount of 1-4 Euros.
