Vienna - Schloss Schonbrunn & Around (Chapter)
This is the Schloss Schönbrunn & Around chapter from Lonely Planet's Vienna guidebook.
Few sights in Vienna enthral like Schloss Schönbrunn. The vision of its imposing baroque facade is not one you are likely to forget in a hurry. You can almost picture the Habsburgs swanning around the rose beds and fountains in the gardens, which provide a harmonious backdrop for the palace, a Unesco World Heritage site.
