After creating the hashtag #HietzingNews on Instagram, I was surprised how many people have been interested in News of this tiny little part of Vienna. The 13th district is a rather quiet area.
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:
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.)
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.
