Back from weekend trip

Back from where the hills are alive with the sound of music and you can go waltzing down the river to the music of Strauss. We landed there it was hot sunny and 30 degrees but the following day it was just 19 degrees and pouring with rain. Thankfully the next 2 days were lovely so all in all had a great time. So without much ado I shall share just a few pictures of lovely Vienna.
Through the rain....
The parlament house..
Natural History museum....
Schonbrunn Palace.....
Portrait of Mahler
Inside of State Opera House
An abbey on the banks of Danube.....
River Danube by dusk
In Danube valley...
