Schoenbrunn Palace is one of Austria’s most visited sights and located just a short train journey from the center of Vienna. With an amazing 1,441 rooms and an expansive garden that includes a Zoo and Maze it was a great little side trip after having enjoyed several days sampling Vienna in the summer.
I could have spent all day just enjoying the summer sun and soaking up the atmosphere of the gardens. I just needed a few quiet beers and a big old picnic set to sit back and really enjoy just how amazing Schoenbrunn Palace really is.
I was there around Christmastime! I’m sure you made it up the hill to that little cafe — I have a lovely memory of looking over the city as all the lights went on and catching a glimpse of the giant Christmas tree in the courtyard of the palace. Yes, it’s a super place and an absolute must in Vienna.
I so checked out the cafe up that hill and what a walk it was with 30+ degree heat. Wish I’d been there at night to see what it was like looking back at the city.
Unbelievable fantastic tourist spot to visit. I think Schoenbrunn Palace is something that everyone need to visit. I could imagine myself running through that huge garden. Where is the zoo located?
Love that shot Chris!
Thanks Peter, its no comparison to that lens of yours but not half bad for an iphone I don’t think.
Amazing shot! I remember that palace from when I was a kid. Unfortunately, back then I was bored to tears with it, considering I was forced to spend three months cooped up in a VW bus with my family, visiting one church/palace/castle/cathedral after another. Today, I would give anything to go on a tour like that.
