After touring the Melk Abbey we drove a short ways to Vienna. This is the first time we've returned to a city and stayed overnight because there are so many other places we want to go still. The reason we returned to Vienna is because when we were here in 2013 we planned to go to the Schönbrunn Palace on our last morning - we were in the parking lot ready to go in and everything. But it was raining and cold and still decorated for Christmas (which, don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas, but I also love seeing places in their 'everyday' state), so we decided to come back. Afterall, Rick Steves says the Schönbrunn is the #2 palace in Europe!
which already got its own post.
