This is described as one of the world’s finest baroque palaces. Built as a summer residence for Prince Eugene of Savoy, conqueror of the Turks in 1718. Extensive gardens with water features are well worth a visit

We have not been inside, as we visited the Schloss Schönbrunn, Hofburg and Kunsthistorisches Museum already, so we have just walked around in the front- and back garden of the palace, which we enjoyed. You have a nice view over the city from the backside...More
