Lainzer Tiergarten, Vienna, Austria

26 December 2016

A nice walk through the Lainzer Tiergarten, a protected forest reserve within the city limits. Starting from Hütteldorf through the Nikolaitor, then all the way to Hirschgstemm and past the Hubertuswarte (highest point within the reserve), and via the Rohrhaus and "Blick auf Wien" back to the Nikolaitor. It was mostly cloudy, but once in a while the sun peeped through the clouds, making for beautiful light contrasts.

"Blick auf Wien" (view on Vienna).

Kahlenberg in the distance.

A panoramic view over the city (scroll right to see it all).
