Austerlitz and Vienna

Brunn Castle
The last day of our visit was always going to be a long one, but it seemed even longer suffering from the after effects of a visit to a local wine cellar the preivous evening. It was a very quiet group, with obvious sore heads, who met for breakfast.

The timetable included a visit to Brunn Castle, drive to Vienna and visit the famous military musuem there before catching a late afternoon flight back to London. It was a dry and clear morning and we all agreed to give up an hour or so in Vienna in return for a return visit to Zurlan Hill.

On our previous visit we could see little due to heavy rain and low clouds. What a difference today was. It was obvious why Napoleon had chosed this hill as the site of his command post, as it offers excellent views of the whole battlefield.
