Text: “Dear Irmgard, our group got a three day holiday and we’re spending it in Vienna. Unfortunately, all the theaters, operas, etc were sold out. But, in spite of that, there’s still a lot of see. Vienna is really quite beautiful, but quite expensive. I’ll write you again soon. That’s all for today, Erich”

Note: The Feldpoststempel is what caught my eye. This was sent from a German soldier who was in Vienna. He did what any young, self respecting nazi lance corporal would do with time off, he went sight seeing! The Votivkirche, as seen on the front of this card, was damaged during the war.
I tried to find out what happened to the sender of this card, Erich Spohn. If my googling was correct, it looks like he survived the war, got married, had some kids, and just recently passed away in January.
This one was sent to Irmgard, who we saw in this post here which was before the war.
