We did not leave any daylight on the table: 9 miles of walking and awesome sightseeing.
First, it was off to see a training session of the Lipizzaner stallions. The trainers, all of whom were men except one, pranced the horses around a ring, sometimes in figure eights.
They trotted, cantered, high stepped and side stepped, but they didn't rear up or do any jumps or stunts. It was a bit disappointing and it isn't worth the money. We left after one hour of a two-hour ticket. But I can cross it off my bucket list.
Then it was off to the Votive Church, which was under renovation and was being set up for a comedy and light show later that evening. We thought it a bit sacrilegious along with the big ads on the sides of the building, but maybe that's what pays for the renovations.
Then we had the three jewels of the day: the history museum, which had many Greek and Roman statues and artifacts, even one of the seven wonders of the world --temple of Artemis; it also contained musical instruments thoughout history, including ones played by Mozart, Strauss and Schubert.
The next museum held the Kaisers' riches and jewels, which had crowns, robes, church items, reliquaries, armor, table decorations and more, all in gold and encrusted with huge gems. There was even a box carved out of solid emerald; and finally the art museum that had entire rooms filled with Dutch masters, Venetian artists, such as Titian and Tintoretto; one full of Dürers, and even Rubens. We didn't see a quarter of the masterpieces it held. It is one to put on the list to go back to if we ever get the chance.
Then we met with our guided tour and had dinner, quite a full day.
