Autunm Splendor In The Viennese Woods And A Visit ToThe Worlds Eldest Zoo

One of the luxuries of living in Vienna is that you just have to take the Public Transportation to reach the Viennese Woods where you can enjoy pure nature and hike to your hearts content.
Last weekend we were strolling through this splendid area that surrounds the city.

The light of a golden autumn day 

  and the soft rolling hills of the Viennese Woods creating spectacular views over the city.



The area is a well known as a wine lover destination

A sun clock from an old house in the Grinzing area, where people go to enjoy the new wine of the year, called " Heuriger"

Another fantastic experience for the young and the young at heart is a visit to the Schoenbrunn zoo.
It ocupies part of the park of the Austrian Emperor's summer residence and is the oldest zoo in the world.
The excursion is a unique experience where landscaping, baroque architecture and modern zoo projects blend in an unforgettable visit.

The perfect proportions of the baroque Palmenhaus, where tropical  palm trees and other plants were grown for the emperors delight.

The watchful elegance of a Gepard

Who is who in the zoo?

Hope you will have the opportunity to visit these sites someday, I'm sure you would enjoy it.
See you next week.
