The view from the 2nd district to the 22nd

6 Dec


The photo didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted, but I found the view an interesting representation of some of the major changes in Vienna over the last 100 years or so with one of the original Gemeindebauten on the other side of the U2 tracks and the UN and everything that has grown up around it in the background. On the right you can catch a glimpse of the Danube.

    I delight in seeing your photos of Vienna and reading your blog.

    When we lived in Vienna in 1980, my husband worked at UNIDO headquarters. It was then just getting going on its new building site, but he already had an office with a marvelous view across the Danube. Because we had always lived in the older parts of town, we were amazed that Vienna was spreading over that far. The last time I was in town, that entire area had been built up, with apartment blocks and town centers.
