Photos and the City

Slow travel & photography

It still feels like spring, the perfect weather to enjoy a walk around Heldenplatz. While studying and working on my master thesis I spent a lot of time there in the Nationalbibliothek (The National Library) and used to sit (or lie) in the lawn during my breaks.

Heldenplatz was built in the course of the Ringstraße boulevard project under the reign of Kaiser Franz Joseph I, even so the original planned “Kaiserforum” was never completed. The square is on the outer side of the Hofburg, adjacent to Volksgarten and Äußeres Burgtor (Outer Castle Gate) on the southside, erected in 1824 by Pietro Nobile.
