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.
Background music from the film "Der
dritte Mann" (The Third Man) by Orson Welles. The composer, Anton Karas, owned a Heurigen
(wine restaurant) at the nearby village of Sievering.
