3 Cities in 7 Days: Schönbrunn Palace

Vienna definitely could not fit into a single post so this is the 2nd part of Vienna at Schönbrunn Palace. The palace and its gardens are huge so deserves a post of its own :)

The Gloriet – I was recommended to try the pastries here however I wasn’t the only one with the same idea; full of tourists!

The gardens were lovely especially since it was Autumn. They were huge and I found myself lost several times while finding places.

The Gardens is home to the oldest zoo in the world! It’s a very large zoo too! I had a lot of fun looking at all the animals and trying to capture funny moments.

This was too cute; a baby seal tentatively going down the stairs!

The bears weren’t very social that day. I have pandas, red pandas and speckled bears with their backs turned away. ^^;;

Largest Greenhouse in Europe!

I hate mazes but I wanted to take a photo of the Mazes and Labrynth section of the gardens… unfortunately to take a decent photo you needed to go through the maze… it was terrible! 0_o”

I didn’t go inside the palace because there were so many tourists and after travelling through Graz, Salzburg and Munich I think I’ve seen enough palaces and castles for one trip. :p It is a little bit cheaper if you purchase a ticket package that includes entry into the palace and zoo and mazes for example. However I wasn’t keen on going inside the palace so I purchased separate tickets for each destination on the palace grounds. :p

So that officially ends my travel photo diary for my Austrian Medical Elective 2011. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed reminiscing the adventures and the wonderful people I’ve met. I highly recommend you travel alone sometime- it opens up different experiences to when you’re travelling with people! :)

    you’re a lucky lady. I got to go there, but the zoo was about to close and so we didn’t have time to go. otherwise i was able to get around for the most part. i skipped the maze because i got scared, haha.

    OMG i swear this place is beautiful. I could remember going through the palace and just enjoying the views. perhaps one day i’ll get the chance to travel there again.

    Wow Vienna! I’ve been seeing different blogs about Vienna and I couldn’t resist to add it on one of my dream places to go to! You are so lucky to visit three cities in 1 week. I wish I could go abroad and visit awesome places.
