Last Sunday I took a walk at the Donauinsel,
the artificial island which divides the river Danube into two basins and thus protects Vienna from the floods caused by Europe's second largest river Danube.
In the distance you can see Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg,
the most famous hills of the Vienna Woods within city boundaries.
The hills make a nice background for the fishing boat and the two friends enjoying a Sunday morning chat on the water!
I'm looking for the Japanese Cherry Grove and nearly miss it.
After walking back for two miles, there is a sign:
The Cherry Grove!
Japan gave Vienna 1000 cherry trees as a present for Austria's 1000 years celebration (1996).
The trees were planted in 2002 and are still rather small!
Unfortunately this year's cherry festival was cancelled because of rain.
Millennium Tower is our point of departure.
It makes a nice contrast to the natural environment we have enjoyed for the past two hours.
