Operation Eurotrip Part 11: Vienna Day 3

Well the Imperial Arms and Armor museum didn’t happen today because once again, I’m an idiot. Before mapping out our museum visit plan I didn’t check to see what the operating days were. Of the 4 I had planned to visit, 2 were open yesterday and today and 2 were open yesterday only. So today all we were able to see were the picture gallery and the collection of Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquities in the Kunsthistorisches museum. I couldn’t even see the coin collection because it was undergoing renovation. Anyway on to pictures…

And that’s it for today. Called it an early day because we’re hitting a fatigue limit. Long train travel day tomorrow will do us well. Off to Lucerne Switzerland tomorrow.
