Vienna at Christmastime, this is something I have dreamed about doing for a long time. While we were not able to travel over Christmas this year (as Parker was on-call) we were excited to head to Vienna on the 26th and still experience the city around Christmastime. Fueled by the famous Viennese coffee, cakes, pastries, goulash and more we admired the lights and decorations across the city.
This beautiful baroque church was our first stop. There was a rather sketchy elevator/platform/stair situation that was plopped in the middle of the church which allows visitors to make their way to the top of the dome. I decided to brave it and I was a bit freaked out. Parker, never one to love heights, stayed planted on the ground instead. It was cool to see the frescos so close, I could nearly reach out and touch them. The trompe l’oeil was very impressive throughout the church.
