Spring is coming in fits and starts this year. Feeling some cabin fever, I ventured out to find one of Vienna’s many Easter markets.
On my first attempt, I ended up at the Spanish Riding School. No Easter market. But, horses!
Take two: Success at Schönbrunn Palace, the emperor’s “summer” residence. (Click any photo to launch a bigger, prettier gallery view.)
Want one more view of the palace? Here’s a panorama of the front. We’ll definitely come back and do a more formal “palace tour” when the grounds are in full bloom. But even on a dreary day, it’s still a spectacular place.
