Schloss Schonbrunn

This "summer palace" of the Habsburgs just outside Vienna was absolutely beautiful. The sheer opulence of it all was a little much...but it was fun to gawk at.



Here's the view from...
This thing...
There was a big maze in the garden grounds...

And this cool network of mirrors they called a kaleidoscope.We toured 40 of the 1400 rooms. Whoa.

These are amazing pictures. Thanks for sharing them. They remind me a bit of photographs I have seen of the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg.
