Schönbrunn, the former summer residence of the imperial family, is considered one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Europe. The Habsburgs resided here the better part of the year in numerous rooms for the large imperial family in addition to representational rooms.
Emperor Franz Joseph, who later married the enchanting Sisi and reigned from 1848 to 1916, was born here in 1830. The monarch spent his last years entirely in the palace, which became the property of the new Republic of Austria only two years after his death. Today, the palace is part of UNESCO’s cultural heritage due to its historic importance, its unique grounds and its splendid furnishings.

The austere architecture, provides a rigid side in this picture, but the colors are there to bring mirth.

Good afternoon Gokhan,
well-known and famous castle in Vienna. You have presented it in a wonderful way, a bit side view shows it in full dimensions, long flower beds and walking path creates nice perspective and underlines architecture of the building.
Well seen and presented.
At my time in Vienna I did not get a chance to photograph this beautiful place (it was a heavy rainy day),so, I am enjoying this place here, on TE.

Le chateau de Schönbrunn pris dans toute sa longueur.
J'ai eu la même idée en plan plus serré, me postant sur l'autre aile. Les couleurs me semblent quelques peu saturées.
