summer night concert

the 7th of june was this years annual sommernachtskonzert (summer night concert) at schönbrunn. the vienna philharmonic preform a free concert there every year.

it was the first time i had made it, and despite not really being able to hear the music (i was sat up on the hill between the palace and the gloriette drinking wine with friends) it was still a lovely evening and i'm glad we got to enjoy the atmosphere and see the evening light turn to night.

i love the view from the hill at schönbrunn. we could see not only the city and the vienna hills but the crowds of people watching the concert below. i was glad for my seat on the grass though!

  3. My partner and I have been reading your blog and appreciating it very much! We are heading to Vienna in this July for the first time. We are trying to find the best places to eat, drink and be merry!!! Hope you're well! Maybe our paths will cross.
