The Schonbrunn palace was the most breathtaking. Somehow, it struck me as more beautiful than Versailles; it was elegantly, but sparsely decorated, with paintings and paneling that seemed decorative, rather than intense. The gardens are indescribable, less crowded and more peaceful, it seemed like a retreat rather than a tourist attraction. We spent the rest of the day wandering the streets, stopping at high class shops, gelato stands, and cafes (where we tried Mozart torte!), until the night grew dark and we had the perfect background for cathedral pictures and our model poses!

Mozart in the Park: We also had a chance to visit Mozart in a famous cemetery, just a few trams stops from the train station. Among the memorable graves were Mozart and Strauss, not to mention hundreds of family plots with beautiful decoration
