Last time I was here was the summer of 2011…
And it’s just as beautiful as ever. (How perfect is that shade of yellow!? It reminds me of Belle’s ball gown. You know, that one from the best Disney princess movie of all time. #SuckitAriel #JKIloveyoutoo)
Last time, though, these hedges were actually green and alive. Winter’s a bitch. Seriously. It was windy and FREEZING.
These were gorgeous gardens the other half of the year. Now they’re just nap time zones for the birds.
There’s a massive Christmas Market at the base of the castle, set up for the holidays and very much keeping in line with Vienna’s we-kick-ass-at-Christmas trend.
Cause they do…
They really, really do.
