Schönbrunn Palace

The baroque-style Schönbrunn Palace (Schloss Schönbrunn) is a World Cultural Heritage site for its splendidly furnished royal residence and ceremonial rooms. It was the Habsburg's summer palace with 1,440 rooms. It works out to be exactly 24 hours if one were to visit every room for a duration of 1 minute.



Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is somehow associated with the palace which is sometimes regarded as a mini-Versailles. The association is being debuted his royal concert in the Mirror Room at the age of six.



The rear side of the palace ground are gardens, a zoo, a greenhouse, a maze and a swimming complex. The Gloriette Monument sits on top of the hill at the extreme rear end of the palace ground. It offers a spectacular view over the palace ground from its roof.
