  Schonbrunn Palace at night
by Krumlovgirl

I thoroughly enjoyed the Schonbrunn Palace. My mother, who really got into Sisi and Franz Josef history while she was there, thinks that the Schonbrunn is wonderful. You will only see 40 of the 1441 rooms, however, so keep that in mind when you get tired! Emperor Franz Joseph (ruled 1848-1916), who was born here in 1830, spent the last years of his life entirely in Schönbrunn. In 1918, the palace became the property of the new republic. Due to this historical importance, its beautiful location and its gardens this palace is one of the very top sights in Vienna. The entire complex was added to the UNESCO's world cultural heritage list.The grounds are free to walk around in during the daytime and can be a nice way to spend an afternoon. At Christmastime, there is a neat Christmas market in front of the palace.
