A Journal, with Pictures

Vienna, Austria

by on Sep.19, 2015, under Happenings

Its Sun­day and we awake as we arrive in Vien­na and its clear that it’s going to be a very warm day. After break­fast we depart by bus for a tour of this won­der­ful his­toric city. All dur­ing our trip we have learned about the Haps­burgs and their empire. Vien­na was their cap­i­tal city, so we see their main Palace in the cen­ter of the city and then in the after­noon we vis­it their sum­mer palace. Schon­brunn Palace gives us a up close look at the grandure to which they treat­ed them­selves. We had time to walk the cen­ter of the city start­ing at the Palace, and through the main shop­ping dis­trict to the Cathed­er­al. Very inter­est­ing archi­tec­ture and momun­ments sprin­kled in for visu­al varie­ity. The Schon­brunn Palace grounds are huge and the build­ing is not air­con­di­tioned with hoards of peo­ple doing the tour. To cool off we treat our­selves to an ice cof­fee after the tour that is most­ly ice cream with a lit­tle cof­fee and wipped cream, what do you expect, its Vienna.
