Vienna houses the oldest zoo in the world, founded as a menagerie in 1752. It is part of Schoenbrunn Palace and just walking in those gardens you feel transported into another world.
What better way to spend a day than going there with a 3 year old animal fanatic and his parents. To top it all off it started snowing when we got there and did not stop until we left!
former imperial breakfast pavillion
and after we walked across to the Christmas markets at the palace... so stunning I wanted to cry!
