Behind the Schönbrunn Palace lies the infamous Schönbrunn park. Designed in Baroque style, this park is together with the palace is also on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites since 1996.

I wouldn't elaborate much on this park apart from the fact that it is beautiful in all seasons. Among the attractions are the Roman Ruins, Neptune fountain and the Gloriette on Schönbrunn Hill with a fantastic view of the palace.

Many locals & visitors come here to relax, take pictures, jog and enjoy the park. There are many wild squirrels in the nearby forest. I think they're rogue squirrels because they come down from the trees, stop at my feet as if to expect me to give them nuts or something

Admission is free
