By the Beautiful Blue Danube

Since 1867, Viennese composer Johann Strauss II orchestral version of “An der schönen blauen Donau” or as known in English, “The Blue Danube” has become the epitome of waltz music.

Here are some of my views of the Danube/Donau followed up with a few photos around Vienna/Wien. I get tongue tied keeping track of the German place names with the English transliterations. I also have a little problem with WordPress re-aligning my photos.  I hope these are not too scattered.

The streets of Vienna like Budapest invite us to walk on and on. “Just over there is another quaint little chapel. Look at this row of gabeled buildings. Whats beyond that garden?” They whisper.
