Vienna (Wein), Austria - Part III
Catherine in front of the Stephansdom (St. Stephen's Cathederal) the tallest church in Austria. Stephansdom is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Vienna. The composer Ludwig van Beethoven is said to have discovered the totality of his deafness when he saw birds flying out of the bell tower as a result of the bells' tolling but could not hear the bells. Stephansdom was first built as a parish church of the Diocese of Passau in 1147 and rebuilt and enlarged over the centuries, with major new work concluding in 1511.

Catherine and I took a tour of the Vienna Opera House. The tour took us throughout the Opera House, including through the back stage areas.
The following pictures were actually taken on our trip before we arrived in Vienna. We stopped at a Landzeit restaurant on the autobahn on our way to Vienna. The restaurants were clean and had good food.
