We had quite a bit of sitting time yesterday traveling to Vienna so I knew we would have a busy day today! First we took a panoramic bus tour with our local guide today. We got a glimpse of the St Stephens Cathedral, the museums, the NaschMarkt and so much more. Next we headed 15 minutes away to another castle. Vienna is known for the Schonbrunn Castle. This is where Maria Theresa ruled over Vienna. On property we got to see a private showing of a Marionette show and go watch a cooking demonstration of Apple Strudel. We've had this on the trip a couple times so it was so fun to see how it is done while sampling it again!
The castle tour started and we learned about the history of Maria Theresa. The Schonbrunn Castle was their summer home.
This afternoon we were able to venture out on our own to "get lost" in the city.
Our evening was so fun! We went to the Vienna zoo which is the oldest in Europe. The zoo is just a short distance from the Schonbrunn castle. There is an area called the KaiserPavillion, this was where the emperor would come to eat breakfast. We at in this pavilion for dinner. As always the food was delicious!!!
Tomorrow is our last day in the city as well as our Farewell dinner with our amazing guides Dean and Stephanie. I can't wait to discover more of this gorgeous city!
