Schonbrunn Palace was formerly Princess Sisi’s summer residence, which currently has a zoo, the Palm House, a park, and the Gloriette. The palace is considered to be one of the best ones in Europe, and was under the possession of the Habsburgs after 1569. In the year 1642, Emperor Ferdinand II’s wife turned it into a summer residence, and the place became "Schönbrunn". It was revamped in 1743 by Maria Theresia, and is the birth place of the Emperor Franz Joseph. The palace became the property of the government of Austria, shortly after his death, and today, Schonbrunn Palace is a part of UNESCO’s cultural heritage. Visiting Schonbrunn Palace is truly a unique experience as the place has unique architecture and the rooms are decorated in Rococo style. The palace has beautiful tile stoves, and the roofs have some of the most beautiful crystal chandeliers that you will ever see. Don’t forget to check out the Festival Hall, the Million Room and the Emperor Franz Joseph´s Bedroom, all of which have truly unique decorations. Other than this, don’t miss out on the opportunity to view Maria Theresia’s apartment and the Tirolian garden. The palace is visited by over 2.7 million people yearly and is one place that you should definitely visit.
