Saturday, August 29 continued

We end our walking tour at St Stephen's Cathedral and go to a cafe for coffee and Sacher torte and to observe the Saturday activities in Vienna's Old City. Sacher torte is chocolate cake with chocolate cream filling and chocolate frosting with whipped cream. At 11 in the morning!

The spire of St Stephen's Cathedral. St Stephen was the first Christian martyr.

Groups in native costumes are gathering next to the cathedral for a performance.

Vienna is proud of the purity of its city water. It is wonderfully tasteless.
