    After the Schonbrun Palace Tour we visited the gardens located at the rear.

    Entry is free however attractions such as Privy Garden, the Orangery Garden , Maze Zoo, Palm House and the Desert House require tickets.

    The gardens are manicured and spectacular with water features and lots of seating areas for you to relax and enjoy the view.

    This is arguably the most famous part of Vienna, and traveling around the Ringstrasse will give you a wonderful feel for Vienna.

    Stretching from the city centre out to the Danube river, the canal is more function over form. There are a few nice areas to walk along the canal.

    It was very easy to take the tram to the endpoint at Beethovengang. From there a trail wandered up the hill through a narrow patch of forest. There were birds and friendly locals, although they mostly spoke German...go figure. There is a wine restaurant there that only opens in the late afternoon. The nice man let us in to look around, but there were no beverages or food available at lunch time.

    Saw the first few stars near the State Opera with names of some artists. I believe these are famous opera singers of yesteryear.

    Interestingly I actually discovered almost similar stars on the ground in Bratislava first although I stayed in Vienna during this trip.

    In Vienna in the Hofburg you shall find this lovely little square , but loaded with interesting things to be seen or to be found out about the Habsburgs.
    So lets see the points of interest:
    - The Augustinerkirche - originally built as the parish church of the Habsburgs - with a beautiful interior it also holds a less known relic. This church is home of urns - the Habsburg urns that holds hearts of members of the Habsburg family - in total 54 urns that are kept in a special crypt in the church known as the Herzgruft (Crypt of the Hearts).
    - Statue of Joseph II - why is it so interesting - could be just another equestrian statue - is the fact that Joseph II is represented dressed in a Roman toga - emphasizing on the ( ...the story doesn't really reflect reality) fact that the Habsburgs are descendants of the ancient Roman kings.
    - the Stallburg (former stables) - today ther you can find the Spanish Riding School and the Lipizzaner Museum (and if you are lucky you can take a look on the famous horses).
    So, when you are in the Hofburg - hopefully with a guide - stop in the Josefsplatz and learn about the interesting stories it has to share.
