Schönbrunn Palace & its beautiful gardens.
Schönbrunn in Vienna has more than 500 years of imperial heritage, art, and natural beauty.
From the 18th century to 1918, Schönbrunn was the residence of the Habsburg emperors.
Of the 1441 rooms, 40 are currently open to the public and run the gamut from ornate salons to Rococo staterooms and the residential suites of Emperor Franz Joseph and their wife Empress Elizabeth „Sissi”.
There are historic rooms such as the Hall of Mirrors, where six-year-old Mozart performed in 1762. Incredible art, like the one in Millions Room, paneled with rosewood and decorated with valuable miniatures from India and Persia
Schönbrunn is inevitably linked to the story of Empress Elisabeth, née Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria, known for the world as “Sissi”.
The shadows of those who wrote history are everywhere – Mozart made music in the mirrored hall of Schönbrunn Palace as a six-year-old prodigy. In the Round Chinese Cabinet, Maria Theresa held her secret conferences with State Chancellor Prince Kaunitz. Napoleon held conferences in the Vieux Lacque Room. And in the Blue Chinese Salon, Emperor Charles I signed his renunciation of government (end of the monarchy).
From 1805 till 1809, the Schonbrunn Palace was Napoleon Bonaparte’s headquarters. The Palace was a part of the Habsburg Dynasty of Austria.
Napoleon became the owner of the Palace after he married the Archduchess, Marie-Louise. Napoleon had a son with Marie-Louise and named him Napoleon Francois Charles Joseph or Napoleon II.
The Palace was also the birthplace of Marie Antoinette.
French queen, married to Louis XVI, was born an archduchess of Austria and this palace is where she spent her summers.
