Vienna, 2013

Back to Travels page

 

We spent about a week in Vienna, and although it was really cold, most of the time we walked the city and looked at the amazing architecture and historic sights.  This is the Albertina Palace.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Augustinian Church

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inside the church

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mary and the girls rode the famous ferris wheel that let's you see the whole city.  They loved it!  Dad sat that out.

Sam in heaven!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dad is down there somewhere, probably eating a giant pretzel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hofburg Palace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a cool clock that shows not the time, but the moon phase (it is the one above the regular clock, here showing nearly full moon).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Josefsplatz

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

National Library

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Spanish Riding School, where the famous Lippinzaner stallions live.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There they are!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Natural History Museum

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inside the museum, with its amazing architecture and ceiling murals.

Our favorite t-shirt that we saw in Austria!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is Schonbrunn Palace, just outside of Vienna.  It has hundreds of rooms, and you can tour some of them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, the palace grounds were amazing, even in late winter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hedge maze!   Look who's in there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And, a great market outside the palace grounds, where we found all kinds of wonderful foods and gifts. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

St. Stephen's Church, which dominates the center of the city.
