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! :)
