Vienna, 2013

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.











The view
























































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).







































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.
