I looked at the photos from Vienna on TE and it seems that everything has been shown already. So what to post that would be new? And I found! This is view of the stairs of Albertina, with the reproduction of Durer's Hare. In the background one can see the back of Staatsopera.
The Albertina is a museum in the Innere Stadt (First District) of Vienna, Austria. It houses one of the largest and most important print rooms in the world with approximately 65,000 drawings and approximately 1 million old master prints, as well as more modern graphic works, photographs and architectural drawings.he range of outstanding works at the Albertina span from Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael through Albrecht Duerer, Rembrandt and Rubens to Lorrain, Delacroix, Manet and Cezanne.
The collections of the 20th century include works by Schiele,Klimt and Kokoschka, as well as Warhol, Rauschenberg and Baselitz.
Young Hare (German: Feldhase) is a 1502 watercolour and bodycolour painting by German artist Albrecht Dürer. Painted in 1502 in his workshop, it is acknowledged as a masterpiece of observational art The subject is rendered with almost photographic accuracy, and although the piece is normally given the title Young Hare, the portrait is sufficiently detailed for the hare to be identified as a mature specimen.
I had today disappointing day. In the (late) morning I went to Schoenbrunn. There was a big queue and then I had to wait again for the entrance. I bought ticket for 4 attractions but then.. In the park there were preparing something and the whole view was spoiled by fences, cables, reflectors, big scene and so on . In the palace it was not allowed to make photos and it was such a crowd that it was difficult to see anything. Also the other attractions were not specially worth. So I had an impression that I lost time and money.
So my advice: there is a lot to see free in Schoenbrunn, think well before bying a ticket. Then I went to Schmetterling Haus. I was there some 25 years before and was impressed. Now it seemed to me there were not so many kinds of butterflies.
I should rather visit Albertina.

amo molto Durer, per cui posso solo apprezzare questo tuo scatto, questa lepre è magnifica, non sono certo io che devo dirlo.

what a wonderful idea, having this huge hare on the steps. It is an inspired way to display art and your capture shows how effective it can be. Superb!
Enjoy a peaceful weekend - B.

A nice idea for a staircase and clearly a view from Vienna that hasn't been shown here many times before. Tourists are a real nuisance, always blocking the view for us travellers, aren't they? ;-)
Warsaw is too hot for sightseeing anyway. Always difficult to find any shade in the huge streets.

Howdy Vienna Malgo,
Your view of Durer's Hare painted accurately on the steps is impressively huge, and a first for me having never seen art on steps.
And the numerous people within the scene backs your note about crowds.
Rick Steves recommends not visiting the popular European cities in the summer, but I think maybe late Spring is also not advisable?
My first trip to Deutschland started in March in Munchen and it was wonderful, no crowds anywhere.
Thanks for sharing,

Sorry to hear it was a disappointing day, but on the plus side, you did capture this rather surreal shot :) When I saw this in the gallery, I admit I was very confused, its not something we see everyday. A unique artwork in a very weird place, and your post does wonderful justice to it.
Thank you for the good advice in your note.
Have a great day

The harte painting on the stairs is marvelous sight, Malgo, combined with the vibrant town scenery makes this attractive picture.
