Vienna im Vinter

A couple of weeks ago, I went with some friends to Vienna for the day.  At the top of the list was to see the Schönbrunn Palace as it's the #1 attraction in Vienna and I've never been.  It's the 1,441-room summer home of the famous Habsburg family.  And it's very Ro-coco.

The backyard.

It looks a bit different in spring and summer:

We then enjoyed a nice lunch at a very Viennesey restaurant:

and all split our first Kaiserschmarrn for dessert.
The Habsburgs used to eat this for dinner.

 Crepey/pancake puff with bites of carmelized sugar and a side of plum sauce.
 Pretty soon I won't be able to jaunt to Vienna for the day with my girlies. :(

then walked around, shopped and had a coffee at the Sacher Café before driving home in the snow.

Auf Wiedersehen, Wien.

Hi there, I ran into your blog while exploring Graz. Love seeing things from another perspective. Also like your culture shock section a lot. I used to live in Vienna over a decade but now I have come back for research in Graz. If you'd like to meet some time for a coffee, get in touch.
