We loved going to the zoo with our kids, but we also love going to the zoo now our kids are grown! Tiergarten Schönbrunn is not the cheapest zoo around, at 15 Euros for adults, but the rest of the palace gardens are free. Between the two, and with a good café to stop at for lunch, it’s a nice day out. And, around 2 or 3 PM, when all the babies and toddlers are starting to seriously lose it, we can just leave 🙂
Many of these photos I have taken before, but the light was so good today that I took them again. Enjoy.
Fountain in front of the palace.
Very well-disciplined paths.
Even the shadows line up.
And here is how they do it-.

World’s ugliest fountain.
My husband calls this the Barfing Fountain.
Just a hot mess,really.

Lunch at the zoo. Bacon-wrapped, cheese-filled sausages. And don’t forget the french fries.

The biggest set of antlers I have every seen.
Many, many bison burgers.
I swear, this peacock really was showing off.
An albino peacock?
There are a lot of Eastern European tourists at the zoo…
More happy goats.
