Grinzing - Vienna, my district of residence

The Himmelstrasse ("heaven's street") in the center of Grinzing, a residential district of Vienna where I live since 1990. Grinzing is the classical "wine village" at the outskirts of Vienna. People go there to taste the "Heurigen" (new wine). Center: the old catholic church of the former village of Grinzing, now part of Vienna's XIXth district. Left: Heurigen "Berger," one of the best wine tasting places in Vienna.
