"SCHWEIZERTOR - SWISS GATE" Hofburg Palace Complex Tip by mel_bee
Hofburg Palace Complex, Vienna: 217 reviews and 468 photos
This eyecatching red and black striped gateway was erected in 1552 and named after the Swiss mercenaries who guarded it under Empress Maria Theresia. On the courtyard side is a latin quote which means "if God is for us who is against us." I like the lions which guard the gate today. Through the gateway you get to the crown jewels (Schatzkammer) which is worth looking at, I really enjoyed it.
