Philharmoniker Str. 2, 1010 Wien, Austria
This beautiful Neo-Renaissance building was opened in 1869 to a mixed public review, but today it's well-loved by the Viennese and tourists alike. I did not get a chance to go inside, but caught a photo as we walked by. I can only imagine what it...

Sonderadresse 9. Bezirk 1048/1, 1030 Wien, Austria
It's not just the fountain, but the whole area. While it is known as a square, it's more like an open street with the beautiful Hochstrahlbrunnen fountain as the centerpiece.
