Schonbrun Palace - the most visited attraction in Austria we knew there would be queues - fortunately not for too long - they were very organised! The palace was beautiful and interesting! No photos inside!!
The gardens were amazing - and although we wanted to go somewhere in the afternoon we spent some time wandering around in the sunshine
I have never seen such a tame squirrel or birds, this squirrel kept going back to some children with nuts
We had a simple lunch and saw this advertised on a card on our table Kaiserschmarrn - couldn't resist - it was (apparently) Kaiser Franz Josef 1st's favourite dish
I could see why - delicious - loaded with sugar - we shared and hubby did his best to eat most of it!!
Then it was a metro ride back to the city centre.
We decided to walk to our next destination.
Minecraft you could move yourself (I have grandchildren - I've seen their games - that's all I know! lol!)
Down the road to…
…beautiful Belvedere Palace
I wanted to see the Klimt exhibition- hubby wanted to wander outside.
What did I see? 'The Kiss' - couldn't get a photo,
some lovely decor
some interesting faces
by Franz Xaver Messerschmidt who did these based on himself while receiving treatment for an illness - each face contorted in a different expression - fascinating!
I also took this view from a window
Hubby took some fab photos outside
Then it was a tram back into the centre again for another highlight!
The Sacha Hotel cafe!
|Happy! Happy! Happy!|
This is the one my Diabetic nurse said I shouldn't miss - bless her!!! She had been earlier this year and enjoyed the Sacha Torte!
From here we went for a walk, thought I'd better!!
Then it was time for something to eat and back to the hotel to pack!
I have no idea what blogger has done to the text at the top of this post - it looks fine while writing it!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
