Schloß Schönbrunn

A little bit outside of the city center of Wien, Austria you can find the beautiful Schloß Schönbrunn, a town’s landmark of the city. It’s name goes back to emperor Matthias who was hunting here and found a nice well (“schöner Brunnen“).

It was built until 1643 and is the most important palace of Austria. The building and the 160 hectares large park are a UNESCO world heritage site. Outside you can find a wonderful fountain dedicated to Neptun, a Roman ruin (built as a ruin, according to fashion that days) and a hill you should walk up to get a nice overview.
