The first in a series of photos showing some of the things that make Vienna such a great place to live.

This one says that the snow is not being shovelled in this location so that people can use the area for sledding. It’s a pedestrian area around St Ulrich’s church in the Neubau District (7. Bezirk). It snowed today so I’ll try to get an action photo!

Well, it snowed a lot last night and I was able to get the photo below at “sledding rush hour” about 3:30 pm on Saturday afternoon. As you can see the hill is busy and everyone seemed to be having a great time.
