We ended up in Vienna over Easter weekend and decided to do most of our sightseeing on Easter day. For some reason we assumed that it would be pretty quiet, but it was exactly the opposite. There were people everywhere and it was one of the most crowded cities we had been in on our entire trip. We first realized this at Schönbrunn Palace, where we waited in a long line for tickets only to find out that the earliest time we could tour the palace was 5 hours from then. We had to do a little back tracking, but it allowed us to see some of the other attractions while we were waiting for our tour time.

We crammed quite a bit into our one day in Vienna, so by the end of the day we were pretty exhausted. I’ll just say it was nice that we decided to rent an apartment on Airbnb, so we had our own little place to go home to that evening. We still had a great time in the city, which was made easier by the reliable public transit system. We ended up riding it quite a bit that day, and never had to wait more than a few minutes for a train.
