Schonbrunn Christmas Market

On Boxing Day, my friend Sara, her cousin Brian, and I went to the Christmas market at Schonbrunn Palace. This was the last day that this Christmas market was open. I especially enjoyed visiting this market because I didn't get to see many Christmas markets this year due to a long-lasting virus I caught. The booths were lit up and shopkeepers cheerfully worked to sell the last of their wares before closing up for the season.

After browsing the market, we walked through the palace gardens and hiked up the hill to the Gloriette. The dark figures in the front are Sara and me. The Gloriette is beautiful when it's lit up at night! We got there just as the sun was going down over the city.
