After arriving at the railway station Südbahnhof I went down to the centre of Vienna through Belvedere Gardens. Only a snow covered Sphinx sculpture watched my steps on the way to the Lower Belvedere which one can see in the background. The galleries in the Upper Belvedere and the Lower Belvedere are worth a visit for friends of the fine arts.
Update: The railway station Südbahnhof had been demolished in 2009 but the mentioned path through Belvedere Gardens is still open for travellers who are arriving Vienna at the new Vienna main railway station (Wiener Hauptbahnhof)
