Lights

in Europe is pretty grand, and Vienna is no exception.

This was my first time back to Vienna since I did a summer study abroad in Germany and Austria during my undergrad. I loved it then, love it now. It was freeeeezing (felt way colder than Copenhagen) but so, so pretty with all the holiday decorations. And Christmas sweets!

St Stephan's Cathedral

We walked the main street to St. Stephen’s Cathedral, in the very center of the city. The outside is very touristy, with people in Mozart costumes hounding you to buy Opera tickets (zero exaggeration – they have capes and fluffy white collars and everything). But – the inside! So gorg!

Candles

Full of candles.

Candles

And people lighting candles (shocker).

Cathedral

And Gothic motifs.

Church

And stained glass windows.

Candles

Fa la la la la.

Christmas market

Outside – a Christmas market!

Flowers

With festive flowers.

Basically all I do is take pictures of food.

Anywaaaaay, to summarize, on our lap through the city center we experienced: lights x 1000, freezing cold fingers, and Christmas cheer.

All that was missing was some mulled wine and roasted chestnuts. Next time…
