Today we headed out to Schloss Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ 1440 room summer palace. Now this place really is huge the gardens are amazing there is even a maze! We wandered around the gardens for a few hours then headed back into Vienna to the Belveder gardens where apparently you can get a good look at the city … Hmm, maybe not, which made the uphill walk very unpleasant !
After a disappointing view we headed back to city hall and those yummy food stalls for an afternoon treat, and oh boy did we get one! There were these movie like ‘choc tops’ which clearly weren’t ice cream as they weren’t in a freezer, but we had seen them in other places as well and were quite curious about them. Well, it turns out they are meringue like, stuffed cones dipped in chocolate … Oh my g_d divine just doesn’t describe these delicious sweet sickening treats 🙂 .. We do know that we are glad we shared one!
Feeling decidedly ill we headed for home for some home style cooking and a few beers whilst washing.
