City Views.151

All my remaining photos of the grounds and building of Schönbrunn Palace. Just above, the west wing of the palace as seen from the west gardens, and above that, a greenhouse we didn’t enter, on the west side of the grounds. Immediately below, two photos I snuck while touring the rooms inside that wing and the rest of the palace: the photo out the window is looking out towards the Gloriette, built at the highest point in the park and from which (or of which) came most of the photos in the larger gallery further below. Just below the two circular indoor photos is one of my total favorite elements: a fake Roman Ruin! Yes, the Habsurgs must have suffered from imposter syndrome because they seem at some point in the 18th century or so to have decided it would enhance their prestige to have a “Roman Ruin” on the grounds of their summer palace. Umm, ok…. :-).

    Making fake ruins is pretty hilarious
