Schönbrun Gardens

The Christmas holidays with seven people in a two bedroom apartment require some walking excursions, so the other day we hopped on the Ubahn for a quick ride to Schönbrun Palace. (I never dreamed I would be saying that I would take a quick ride to a palace!) We were hoping we could explore the labyrinths they have there, but learned before we left that they are closed for the winter. Since they are made of hedges that currently have no leaves, that makes good sense. Instead we walked around the gardens and walked up the hill to see the palace from afar. It was a cool day, but pleasant to be walking and a good excursion for all of us.
