Grandiose Vienna

I'm not going to lie, I love Pandas. So a trip to Vienna's Zoo was an absolute must! The zoo is huge and is worth the effort to see as its ranked as one of the best in the world. Helpfully, its within the grounds of the  Schonbrunn Palace which is a must see attraction.  An ornate and expansive palace that is a little outside the historic centre, Schonbrunn epitomizes Vienna's grand and royal nature. Do however, expect long queues. You are given a ticket with a set entry time, so there's no better excuse for killing some time in the zoo while you wait!

Don't Miss- Kunsthistorisches Museum. Aside from the amazing art collections, the building's architecture can only be described as stunning.

Hungry? Eat Vienna style with traditional coffee and cake. Julius Meinl is a small cafe where you can watch the world go by, and there is a shop next door full of luxury food products that is definitely worth a wander around.

Top Tip- Vienna is a vast city. Travelling around on foot will waste precious time. Catch the underground or the tram, both reliable. You can buy travel passes in the train station for the duration of your stay, saving you both time and money.
