Vienna Day 4: Schönbrunn, Liechtenstein Times Two, and Not Much More
My fourth day in Vienna won't bring you *that* many pictures as I largely spent the day inside. Although this day has been planned (for at least half of it) this way for months, it was actually quite convenient as it rained throughout the most of the day. (I always forgot this before but also follow me on Instagram to get more updates throughout the day.)
To kick off the day, I visited one of Vienna's - if not Austria's - most famous sights: Schloss Schönbrunn, the former summer residence of the imperial Habsburg family. Of the 1441 rooms, you can tour some fourty.
Unfortunately, you aren't allowed to take any pictures inside though you probably wouldn't have been able to take any good ones anyway. It might not be so noticeable in the pictures but Schönbrunn was immensely crowded. In the first few rooms of the tour, you are simply edged through the rooms by the crowd of people, all with the audioguides pressed to their ears.
By room 18 or so, you are able to escape from the crowd a little and so the tour actually gets enjoyable. Its highlights certainly include the Great Hall.
...and one of them really got into the spirit of things! (Yes, he was a tourist and not one of those dressed up people you can take pictures with you run into about seemingly everywhere in Italy.)
Yep, it was rainy and windy and so I called a rather quick end to my tour of the park after visiting the Gloriette. Plus, I had another place to get to...
