Schönbrunn Palace

.
Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna

The over-1400 room Rococo summer palace, built and expanded over the period 1696-1749, was used extensively by the Empress Maria Theresa and her large family, and later by the Emperor Franz Josef.

The Gloriette [last picture] was built on the 60-metre hill overlooking the palace in 1775 to evoke and glorify Habsburg power.

Thanks Warren as always you're the best! My personal favourite pic of the Hofburg: the new part of the Hofburg photographed from the Heldenplatz with the statue of Prince Eugen in the front.

The only part of the Palace of Schonbrunn that Empress Elisabeth really liked was the park.
She went for long walks in the park.
The Walnut Room is named for the wood used to line the walls and to make the furniture.
It was used as an audience chamber by Joseph II and by Franz Joseph.

And in fact Empress Elisabeth had a private staircase installed, leading from her official apartments on the first floor to her private apartments on the ground floor, which had direct access to the garden. In this way she could leave the palace and go in the garden whenever she wanted and without being controlled.
