My World Tuesday - Schönbrunn

Let's visit Schloss Schönbrunn, the imperial residence of Maria Theresia, one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna.
We start with a cup of coffee at the Kaiserpavillion, and then walk around the Vienna Zoo.
Please, click on the pictures for more photos or follow the links above for more information!

But be cautious, don't wake up the animals at the Zoo :)


Should we also walk up the hill to the Schönbrunn Palace Garden Gloriette?

And enjoy the view of the Palace!

My World Tuesday offers free travelling around the globe :)

I love to visit zoos when i'm in a trip. Six months in Boca Raton, Florida, we visited all the zoos and the aquariums in Palm Beach, Miami, Everglades and Key West. Even on my honeymoon in Praque, we visited the zoo. I love all your photos. But when i visited Vienna i didn't go to the zoo because i was with my parents and too young to go alone. So i followed the group and they didn't want to go to the zoo. They prefered shopping.

A lovely palace tour Maria. Was that a napping Koala I spied in snoozing in the fork of the tree?

Happy Tuesday!

Great captures.
