Schönbrunn Palace

This weekend, I visited the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna–the main summer residence of the Habsburg rulers. It was no surprise to me that Schönbrunn literally translates to “beautiful spring;” the Palace and its grounds were stunningly beautiful! The building is such an important example of Baroque architecture that it was included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1996. My favorite room was the “Great Gallery,” where they threw magnificent receptions, balls and banquets.
