maybe it was because our expectations were too high, but we were quite disappointed with Vienna... Schonbrunn palace was really beautiful, not only for the palace itself which is quite sumptuous, but also because of the interminable gardens, including a maze garden where we got lost and a zoo.
Interior of the great gallery (ballroom) ...
The maze garden
a game of mirrors ...
We only saw the sign after we tried feeding the ostrich :P
The centre of Vienna seemed to be all under construction, and with just too many people. Stephansdom (the cathedral whcih dominates the city centre) is impressive, but is in need of a big cleanup.
Garden in front of the Hofburg
The Natural History Museum
The famous bratwurst (the only one I had during the whole trip)
And the best dessert, some sort of raspberry strudel
