I started 2021 like I finished 2020 with lots of walks and trying to make the best of having more free time than usual and exploring Vienna and also the surroundings.

What will 2021 bring Hopefully getting vaccinated soon, taking my postponed trip to Scotland this summer, having lots of walks and hikes, exploring Vienna & Austria and getting to photographing many, many lovely people!

While Vienna is emptier than usual in this time of the year, the Christmas lights till sparkle and bring joy.

Usually, these are the times of the year when there is a constant smell of mulled wine and punch over Vienna. The first Christmas markets are open and you hear a lot of Italian, Russian, English and other languages on the streets.

But as the rest of the year has been, Christmas time 2020 is different – Austria (like most of Europe or the rest of the world) is in the middle of lockdown 2 and lots of shops had to close. Vienna might not be as empty as in spring but compared to normal times there are very few people around.

Christmas markets will open on December 7th – the earliest and we´ll still don´t know if it will happen at all. Many coffee houses offer not only coffee and cakes to take away but also mulled wine and punch. Grab a cup (or better bring your own cup) and enjoy a walk under the lights.
