We began the day with a Nine o'clock breakfast of fresh bread rolls with assorted jams, cheeses and Nutella. Next we made our way to Schoenbrunn Castle, via Vienna's tram system. We went through an audio tour of the castle and explored its many, beautiful gardens and nearly lost ourselves in its maddening mazes. Once home to the Austrian imperial family the castle is now listed as a world heritage site. It was in that castle that Maire Antoinette was born (later beheaded in the French revolution) and the place where five year old Mozart performed in front of the imperial family.
After a lunch of baguettes we walked to the Wiener Rieserad, a very old Ferris wheel that is a landmark of Vienna. About 64.75m tall and at about 430 tonnes of steel, the wheel, built in 1897, didn't meet some of our safety standards and as a result we stayed away from the loose doors and windows.
We headed home on the train system, which made us end up further away than where we started, at least crossing the Danube river, twice.
After several attempts at breaking the language barrier we had Chinese for dinner. Finally before bed we managed to catch an episode of what seemed like an Austrian version of Funniest home videos, which just went to prove that laughing at other peoples misfortune is funny in any language.
