Vienna's sky is wearing soft winter clouds at daytime,
and at night a sparkling glittering fancy gown!

Wie schön, Maria, dort war ich heute auch - ich habe George Cloony besucht, weil unser Nespresso zu Ende ging - what else!
Leider brannten noch keine Lichter, habe es trotzdem genossen.

How lovely!

I've been wanting to visit the Christmas markets in your part of the world for years; after seeing your lovely photos now it's definite; I'm keeping next year's December free for a trip.

I love your close-up in the first; beautiful.

Lights look so great and that blue hotel is really brilliant!

The blue hotel is called "The Ring" and it was opened not long ago.

Hallo Maria,

alles fein hergerichtet, nur mit dem Schnee müsst ihr euch noch ein wenig Mühe geben, damit der Himmel über Wien die weissen Tupfen bekommt.
Liebe Grüsse

Wonderfull! I'm sure big capitals are in competition for Christmas.

I would like to pass by in this kind Christmas market. Even with the cold night, I'd love to spend money at these little chalets.
