Autumn crocus and a nice view over Vienna

Last Sunday we took a walk in the outskirts of Vienna.
The meadows of Schwarzenberpark were full of autumn crocus!


We walked on towards the soft hills of the Vienna Woods.


From time to time the woods opened and we stepped out on the steep meadows.


People were squatting in the grass, enjoying the sun and flying their kites.

The autumn air was quite clear, we could see St. Stephen's Cathedral in the distance!

How nice that you can retreat to nearby hills, get a little exercise, and enjoy the spectacular views!

Autumn crocus are so beautiful, a nice surprise every fall when they bloom.

Beautiful meadows with the crocus and soft green hills. I see one kite flying. Nice view of the city below.

Strangely, I always associated Vienna Woods with thick, flat woodlands. Enjoyed seeing these photos to change that! I did not realise that the area provided views over Vienna!

Greyscale Territory,
The Vienna Woods (German: Wienerwald) is a low, wooded section of the Alps in eastern Lower Austria and Vienna. The area covers over 1,000 square kilometres (385 sq.mi) and includes the northernmost parts of the entire Alpine chain.It is located at the border between the Mostviertel and the Industrieviertel, two of the four quarters of Lower Austria, and reaches far into the city of Vienna. (Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wienerwald)
