I stopped by the Volksgarten (People’s Garden) today. Built on the site of an old fortification that was burned to the ground by Napoleon in 1809, the park was opened to the public in 1825. It is a lovely oasis amid the hubbub of the Innere Stadt at any time of year. Today, the weather was beautiful, and the park was crowded with Viennese getting their vitamin D fix and tourists taking photos of each other with the roses. I took a few myself with my little camera—which surprised me once again with its capabilities. Enjoy!
