Austria - Vienna - Palace and Gardens of Schloss Schönbrunn
Sent by Theresa, a postcrosser from Austria. This one shows Schloss Schönbrunn (or Schönbrunn Castle), a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Vienna, Austria.
Schönbrunn is of outstanding universal value as a particularly well-preserved example of the Baroque princely residential ensemble. Furthermore, the palace and gardens are exceptional by virtue of the evidence that they preserve of modifications over several centuries that vividly illustrate the tastes, interests and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs.
