Schönbrunn Palace

Posted in General, Travel at 7:30 pm by Warren Williams

After the long drive with the coach tour, we had fifteen minutes to explore Schönbrunn Palace on the outskirts of Vienna, before arriving to our hostel for the next two nights. Schönbrunn Palace was built in the late 17th century, and is the former imperial summer residence.

    Thanks again for your visits and comments. Really appreciate them 🙂

    These shoots were literally on the run.
    We ran up the 60metre high hill, took a couple of group photos and ran back down. Was a long walk/run to do in 15minutes return. Such a grand venue, and would love to spend a few hours there again at some point. As I have my good friend René there, no doubt I’ll be in Vienna again next time in Europe.
