It had been on our ToDo list for ages—visit the outstanding art collection at the Liechtenstein Museum in Vienna. Our overdue trek resulted in a most pleasant summer day enjoying gardens, art, food and music.
|The back side of the Liechtenstein Museum, the summer palace named for the family that named itself after a castle south of Vienna in the early 1100s and, yes, the same family that gave its name to the tiny country on Austria's western border.|
|Statuary and ivy.|
|Sitting outdoors at the Rubens Restaurant on the palace grounds, we enjoyed a light lunch of tomato soup, cold cucumber and watercress soup, a salmon sandwich and lemonade...|
|...followed by a marvelous strawberry tiramisu.|
