"Schonbrunn gardens" Schönbrunn Palace Tip by BitBucket

Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna: 307 reviews and 635 photos

  Squirrel eating from my hand
by BitBucket

If you plan a visit to the Schonbrunn Gardens, don't stop just in the lower part of the gardens. Climb the hill and go to the Gloriette. From here you'll have a beautiful view of the city. Cross the Gloriette and go in to the woods. Here you'll found a lot of squirrels just waiting to eat hazelnuts from your hands.
When I first come in a squirrel area with my nuts on hand, a squirrel run to me, climbed my pants and wait for food! This is a VERY relaxant and beautiful experience!!!
I was 2 hours with squirrels and birds.
Just take your nuts, break it in small pieces, put them in the palm of your hand, sit down and wait for birds to fly on your hands!
The squirrel encounter was one of the best experiences in Vienna!
