We woke to sunshine today--and NOT the liquid kind! It was mostly sunny all day, with not a drop of rain in sight! We were very happy with that, as our plans for today were to visit The Schonbrunn Palace and Gardens, and the gardens would have not been much fun in the rain.
It was a 45 minute tram and subway journey out to the Palace, which is located on the very outskirts of Vienna.
Schonbrunn Palace was built between 1696 and 1712, and contains 1,441 rooms. The Palace, home to the Habsburg emperors from the 1700's until 1918, covers an area of over 450 acres. The gardens even contain a zoo, said to be "the oldest zoo in the world".
