Kunst Historisches Museum
We spent about 3 hours in the museum but only on the top floor with the paintings. For later we had a pre booked tour of Schonbrun with a concert and evening meal. This was the second time I had visited the Schoenbrunn, where we took all the back ways due to Christls wheel chair. They took us through Franz Josephs apartments, strange to think that Christl was alive at the time, although too young to remember anything.
The Residenz restaurant was the place for dinner. Entree was rindsuppe with fritaten for all of us. Uschi had a sherry aperitif, Christine had campari and orange while I had hollersekt. The main meal was Wiener Tafelspitz with schnittlauch sauce and gerosteten erdaepfel. The potato was cut into about 5mm cubes and served in a dense mound, perhaps roasted in that way. Very like a browner version of corned beef. Uschi had a red wine (Wieninger wienertrilogie) I had a Paschinger “Urbileicht” gruener Veltliner.
Dessert was apple struedel. Chris couldn't eat more than about a third of hers due to her reaction to the cream.
We didn’t get back to the Pension until around one in the morning.
