That's where we went for a walk yesterday.
Part of our route was the official Stadtwanderweg 7 (city trail nr 7), we mainly followed the stream Liesing, for hours. And ended in the 10th district, Favoriten.
We started in Alt Erlaa. When you drive to Vienna, arriving from the south, you will not miss these high rise buildings:
I had difficulties, capturing the architecture with my camera. Everthing is bending!
The "bathtub" in front of each balcony is convenient.
The "residence time" is long. Many residents in Alt Erlaa are residents from the "first generation" and when they move, they move to another apartment in the housing complex, lets say to a smaller apartment now that the kids move out.
The architecture by Harry Glück dates back to "Alien", unmistakably.
Even one of the - nowadays rare - old phone booths was allowed to stay.
Don't make the mistake and mistake this place with the banlieu. At the supermarket, old ladies get greeted by their husband's professional name (director, senate ...) - very, very middle-class, as to be found in Hietzing, Währing or Döbling (Vienna's noble districts in the West).
The shopping plaza in the centre. Now this looks old!
Turn your head by 180 degrees and you will see this, seriously!:
A few metres further, it looks like this:
Ukrainian style in Vienna: bright colours :)
We even came cross some houses we could afford to buy (but not afford to maintain):
So on we walked, heading East. We came past a lake:
And we did recognise some landmarks in the far distance:
A Saturday afternoon in Vienna:
On our way we crossed highways, underneath of course:
Yes, this walk did take ... HOURS!
And had time for ethnological studies:
from May to November:
We saw plenty of old farmhouses as well as new single family homes:
Name of the road: Scheunenstraße. Barn road, how appropriate!
This is probably the southernmost the city gets:
Yep, this is Vienna, too!
Close to Oberlaa, where we hopped on the tram and drove back home.
Next time we will take the North of Vienna!
Today it's time for the museum. Unfortunately no cameras allowed. See you next week!
