Part of my honeymoon in June 2007

Schloss Schonbrunn (Schonbrunn Palace) is one of the most famous and historical sites in Austria, and has been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996.

A visit to this palace is a must if you are at Vienna. Besides the very impressive main palace building, this place also has a huge premises consisting of beautiful gardens, roman ruins, the Neptune Fountain, Gloriette, zoo etc. Enough attractions for you to spend at least half a day here.

Schonbrunn is located at the south-western part of Vienna city and can be easily reached by the subway (U-bahn) U4 line. Hope the information and photos of my visit in June 2007 will be useful to you, and perhaps you can give some comments and ratings :)

Detailed information on Schonbrunn, including history, opening hours, admission charges etc, are at the official website below:

Here is a photograph of the amazing architecture of the Gloriette, which is located on top of a hill behind the main palace itself.

Besides the historical rooms of the main palace itself, the outer premises are very beautiful, especially the big and well-lawned gardens with flowers of many colours.

    What a beautiful palace and garden - no wonder it is a UNESCO site. Cheers, SL :)
