The most romantic of Habsburg Palaces is the Schonbrunn Palace. When you set foot on this place, you will feel the nostalgia for romance which flourished during the imperial times.
The palace is panoramic and ornate in its design. It evokes a character apt for the royals.

The lawn of the palace is manicured in distinctive royal style with exuberant statues dotting the landscape.

Among the sights of interest in the palace complex are the Neptune Fountain and the Gloriette, which in its evocative style can make one deeply attached to the place.
