Vienna – City of Music & Dreams – Schonbrunn Palace – P3

Schonbrunn Palace –

Constructed in the 17th century, the immense Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna was the summer residence of the Austrian imperial family for several hundred years. Its stunning Baroque architecture, lavish interiors and beautiful gardens are well worth a visit.

Wander around its lavish rooms – of which there are a grand total of 1,441 – and admire the sumptuous Rococo style decor. Don’t miss the Splendour of the Great Gallery, where imperial banquets were held, the exotic flair of the Chinese Cabinets – the locations of Maria Theresia’s secret meetings with her Chancellor, and Charles I’s abdication in 1918 – as well as the surprisingly modest private suites of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Isabel.

As well as the beautiful palace itself, the immense Schloss Schonbrunn complex features stunning gardens filled with sculptures, the fascinating Imperial Carriage Museum, and the Tiergarten, the oldest zoo in the world.
