Vienna, AT - All Roads Lead To Rome - CycleBlaze

August 16, 2019 to August 18, 2019

Vienna, AT

After 2 and a half days of intense cycling on the Donau Radweg, I was finally in Vienna.

At the Schönbrunn Palace, I managed to get a ticket for specific time, later that afternoon. So I had 3 hours to walk in the gardens and just relax.

At the designated time, I went to the turnstile. There was a long queue, but I bypassed them all. The guy at the front was puzzled how I could do that. But I showed him that I was on time and he was 3 minutes too early. A good system, but I guess people are just so used to queuing.

This lake next to the Danube is used for row boat racing

I almost ran over this snake. It wasn't in a hurry, so I had time to stop and take a photo

Mozart was buried somewhere in this cemetery, but the location was never marked properly. This memorial is in honour of the composer.
