Vienna was the home of the Royal Family, the Habsburgs an we stopped to see the Palace an the fantastic gardens that surrounded it. After leaving the Palace we made a quick stop at the oldest Schnaps museum in Vienna. Here we did a full tasting of the range, one of which was inspired by the Aussies, as we love our butterscotch schnaps. It is still a family owed business an has been handed down for the last 5 generations. They made some wonderful flavours, an I think that everyone enjoyed themselves.
Whilst we were in the city the FINAL of the Euro Cup was being played.
Walking back though the city, there was a massive buzz with all the hype of the final looming. There were supporters out in force cheering on their team...there were people trying to buy an sell last minute tickets. It was great to see Vienna at its best =)
The next day saw us venture back into the town, some of the group went to see the Spanish dancing horses, while the rest of us roamed around taking in the spirit an culture of the city. There were some fantastic buildings an churches here. We spent the last hour inside the Fan Zone checking out all the fun activities, when we left it was only 6hours till game time!!
Pitty we couldn't stay for the final...
